This books gives a good overall look at what Swing Trading is and how to use it to make money. Not "get rich quick' but a very sensible plan if you have the patience to follow instructions and give it time.

Reader did a good job.

Upton Bell grew up at the knee of the NFL's first great commissioner, his father, the legendary Bert Bell, who not only saved the game from financial ruin after World War II but was one of its greatest innovators. Present at the Creation details Bell’s firsthand experiences. Over the past 53 years, Bell has been an owner, a general manager, a personnel executive, a scouting director for two Super Bowl teams, a television commentator and analyst, and a talk-radio host. He has seen the NFL from the inside and has experienced many of the most important moments in NFL history.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I have a lot of friends who are football fans.

What other book might you compare Present at the Creation to and why?

Can't think of any book that compares.

This is a riveting story, even if you are not a big football fan. My wife listened with me on a long car trip and enjoyed it just for the human interest stories and the “what it was like” back then narratives. Bell relates the story of a man who grew up with the NFL. His father was the very first Commissioner of the NFL and he became a part of a number of teams as a box office person, a scout and finally General Manager of the Patriots.

What about James Killavey’s performance did you like?

Reading was good...slight New England accent, but that fit and it was not overdone

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

First chapter.

Any additional comments?

Overall I give it five stars all around. Oh...and I was very interested to see who Bell picked as the best quarterback ever. Hint – it was not Brady!
