This book recounts the history of the Watchtower/Jehovah's Witness' movement in an autobiographical style. A. H. Macmillan was baptized by the Bible students in 1900 and served at Brooklyn Bethel headquarters until his death in 1966.

All my life I've heard of this book. As one of jehovah's Witnesses I was actually blown away that this was even on audible
I played a portion before purchase, and realized that the reader and audio production was going to be tough to listen to. I wanted the info, so I knew I was going to have to focus on that
The reader doesn't understand punctuation, the book is one long run on sentence. They put background music to it that is horrible, even creepy. Anyone in the theocratic ministry school would have done better, even the 8 year olds. Purchase it anyway
Going to try to see how I can get audible let us re-record Ithaca
It was hard at first to get into the book because of the background music and sound affects. If you can block them out, and focus on the story, the characters and events in the book comes to life. So much i didn't know about Jehovah's witnesses. I recommend this book to others.
This review is focused on the audiobook only--I have previously enjoyed the print version very much and echo the positive reviews about content.
The narrator is only fair, not great. This would be perfectly tolerable, but the audiobook is marred by a continuous repetitive musical background track. If I could just drop the music, the audiobook would be improved greatly.
A history on a misunderstood religious group Jehovahs's Witnesses. Well worth the time spent. It is well read. Several things have been adjusted for further enlightenment of the scriptures.
