Fantastic narrator. And the story,although tragic, is enlightening. I had a hard time putting it down. If you have any family health issue that keeps you awake at night, this is well worth the read. And if you want to know what to look for and how to prevent or deal with addiction this is a good starting place. I heard the movie was repetitive. This book is repetitive. But in a way that has meaning.

I read a few reviews stating that this was not a good book. I can only imagine the people who wrote those reviews were ultra-religious, belenes marriage must only be between a man and a woman, and have no empathy for people who are not like them.

This is a great book about 30+ people in a variety of relationships, with and without children. It is also about children in these relationships.

One of the most interesting and saddening chapters was about the foster care system, but the author did a good job of giving positive and challenging examples of most scenarios.

Highly recommend everyone to read this book.

Very interesting, sad and even humorous at times. I found it helpful in coming to grips with a family cancer diagnosis. I looked him up after listening and saw he died a couple years after this recording groom a car accident. Terrible to breast cancer and die from that.

This book is primarily about protecting the a UK's NGA and the sad reality of the lack of such a humane system in the US. It is also an indictment of the shameful U.S. drug companies, financial institutions and politics aimed at getting rid of the NHS and preventing a similar system in the US.

This is not a book about the specifics of his illness and battle with cancer, although he does discuss it. The last chapter was particularly good.

I read all of these positive reviews and laughed the first couple of jingles, but then just got bored to tears. Just stupid really. And severely lacking in creativity. I don't believe the masses are laughing at this for a whole 3 minutes.
