Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I enjoyed hearing about the details of his personal life.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Action adventure, Mitch Rapp stores by Flynn.

What does David Maraniss bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Maraniss did a good job of interjecting emotions.

Could you see When Pride Still Mattered being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Very difficult, possibly LEONARDO DICAPRIO
