Audible Editor Reviews

Why You Should Download This Audiobook: Frank McCourt's nostalgic journey into his thirty years as a high school teacher is truly inspiring. Not only are we treated to Mr. McCourt's wonderful narration, a feeling of warmth fills the listener as we think of our own favorite teachers who inspired us to learn more, do more, to top even our highest expectations. Teacher Man is more than a memoir; it's a valentine.

    "Frank McCourt is an entertaining writer and reader"

    Listening to McCourt makes me want to write! This is a great follow-up to his other memoirs. One of the memoirs I've most enjoyed listening to since he's an engaging narrator, as well. If you enjoyed his other books, you will enjoy this one. I feel like it's a real bonus to get to listen to an author read his own work.
