I have been diagnosed with several stress disorders the most pervasive being Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Listening to this book melded a ton of medical information I have learned over the years from a variety of rehab session/doctors together and now I now have a better understanding on what is happening inside my body! Thanks very much!
Both! I am now a more informed patient speaking to my medical team also.
I will have to listen to more of these books - they are a great learning experience! Better than going to university and attending classes for me.
For anyone who has worked or participated in an Olympics, the IOC controls their brand VERY tightly so that is why items have to be published anonymously. I was interested in this book after working at the 2010 Olympics, however the summary does not match the content at all (or I slept through that part)! I know more of the ins and outs of the Olympics along with what was kept secret than this book ever revealed-this writer thinks athletes get all access passes and that is not true, other than their facility and accommodation, their access is limited just like the public. So no, probably would not try a book from this author in the future, in addition I like to know whose work I am reading! This book could have been so good!
Put his thoughts together first, pick stories readers want to hear, that are often not published but occur in the villages or during training, some of the athlete partying that goes on, cultural celebrations etc.
His performance kept me listening to the book as I was sure it was going to get metter!
Disappointment at a great opportunity lost.
as a former road warrior I thought this book would be interesting and take me back to letters I wrote this airline, especially when I ended up in the hospital with severe food poisoning. I was very disappointed with this book it was not poetic at all. I listened to hours of drivel, complaining and swearing-get on with life! Really for a couple of hundred dollars spent on a ticket we had to listen to this? The narration was a bit better than other books however with such a bad subject to read, it was ready hard to tell how good the narrator ready was. After 3 hours of swearing and whining about his life I had it.
