Another great story by McDougall, although I really wish they used the same narrator who did Born to Run. Overall, Born to Run was a masterpiece and overshadows this book. It's my second time listening and I still can't get over the British narrator's voice. It just drones on and I find it difficult to enjoy and focus on the story.
