    "autobiography of a leader"

    I've never listened to anything for nine hours before, and didn't expected I'd make it all the way through this book. But I found it impossible to quit. I was fascinating by this window into the education and experiences of a military leader -- a life very different from my own. I learned a great deal about world politics. And I found myself wishing that Wes Clark was running for President in 2008!

    "Easy Does It, Wes!"

    Book is almost unlistenable! I was eager for the message, the words, the story. A friend recommended it. I'm not stupid. I made Captain in the U.S. Air Force -- and a woman at that! -- I went to college and worked for attorneys. But this man reads too fast! I have to assume he did not take direction in making the audio. It's like he's still trying to prove he's good enough -- or the best -- whatever! And in reading so hell bent for leather, he is too self-centered to care about the listener! It's all about him! I bet he grinds his teeth! For sure this man has never heard of easy does it. He hardly takes a breath! It's exhausting to listen, and I slept badly and will not listen again. Somewhere around Kosovo it gets really good -- the words are good, but dammit! General Clark wants to get there first hell or high water! And indeed he does. His enunciation suffers badly also. I wish I had not bought this book. Please have an actor read it again at a decent speed for comprehension. I am angry and disappointed in this book. Print version will be worth checking.
