Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson | [Kenneth R. Timmerman]

Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson

Author Kenneth R. Timmerman exposes Jesse Jackson's life and works, uncovering a sordid tale of greed, ambition, and corruption from a self-proclaimed minister who has no qualms about poisoning American race relations for personal gain. Few figures have been given such a free ride by the media as Jesse Jackson, but Timmerman has interviewed Jackson, his associates, and his victims to write a courageous and important book that at last provides a full, honest accounting of the life and lies of Jackson - from the streets of Chicago to his support of Yasser Arafat in the Middle East.

    Story
    "extremely hard to listen to"
    What did you love best about Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson?

    assuming what was presented is thoroughly researched and accurate [and it seems to be] this is a book that all people of all colors should be familiar with.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson?

    the blatant ways that jesse jackson put himself ahead of anyone and anything.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    in every conceivable way. he is unfamiliar with many words but mispronounces them with consistency. it appears he had never pre-read this book and therefore has pauses and mis-places emphasis throughout the performance.


    Any additional comments?

    if this book could be available by a different narrator it would be great. many times throughout the book i considered turning it back in and getting a replacement, but the content is so valuable that i am going to keep it. this might end up being a book i will actually purchase in hard copy.

    if you can suffer through the narrator, this really will be an eye-opener of a book!

    "Narratror was awful"
    If you could sum up Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson in three words, what would they be?

    Poor Narrator


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Get a narrator with some knowledge of history and the English language


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mike Iykins’s performances?

    Possibly


    If you could give Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Satisfied with the title


    Any additional comments?

    Narrator did not know how to pronounce coup, cause celebre, and many other words correctly. I am surprised that the screening of this individual did not reveal this.
