    "Must-Read for Modern Communicators"

    The details in this autobiography help explain why Billy Graham called Fulton Sheen the "greatest communicator of the twentieth century."

    Modern communicators should be interested in his explanation of the approach and strategy behind the messages in his television shows (primarily in sixth chapter, but also in the fifth).

    "What a Wonderful Autobiography!"
    What made the experience of listening to Treasure in Clay the most enjoyable?

    Listening in Bishop Sheen's own words the story of his life was the most enjoyable part of the experience for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bishop Sheen is, of course, my favorite character in the book. I've been a devotee of his talks and books for many many years, since my Dad introduced me to him 25 years ago. I pray that he makes sainthood.


    What about Greg Friedman’s performance did you like?

    I wasn't pulled out of the story by his performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I certainly wanted to, but was unable to.


    Any additional comments?

    The only way this could have been made better would be if Bishop Sheen were reading this book himself. He is unparalleled for his story telling ability. I would have loved to hear his voice change as he read. Additionally, would love to listen to more of his books as audiobooks.

    "Beautiful book with great impact"

    I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this book. The narration was excellent, but the stories of Bishop Sheen himself carried the book. Overall, an excellent book that I will listen to again.
