In these audio volumes, you'll hear Zig onstage in front of a live audience as well as offstage in several intimate studio recordings. You'll hear Zig at his most energetic in the very early days of his career, and you'll hear him at his most reflective and thoughtful in recordings just a few years before his passing. But regardless of when and where Zig delivered his message, one thing remained constant: The unforgettable and timeless truths that Zig spoke changed the lives of millions of people.

I only wish I could have listened to this before I started watching the tv show. Having the author provide commentary before & between the stories was great. The only reason I gave the performance a 4 is because sometimes it seemed like the reader was sped up a little bit but not enough to make it not worth getting this book.

The story of Stax Records unfolds like a Greek tragedy. A white brother and sister build a record company that becomes a monument to racial harmony in 1960’s segregated south Memphis. Their success is startling, and Stax soon defines an international sound. Then, after losses both business and personal, the siblings part, and the brother allies with a visionary African-American partner. Under integrated leadership, Stax explodes as a national player until, Icarus-like, they fall from great heights to a tragic demise.

When Chaz Perron's wife discovers that he is running a scam (posing as a marine biologist to doctor water samples so that an agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the Everglades), he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unlucky for Chaz, Joey survives clutching a bale of Jamaican pot. Rescued from the Atlantic by a former police officer, Mick Stranahan, she decides not to report him but instead haunt and taunt him, with Mick's help, by playing dead.

I listen to my books while driving and I found that I almost had to pull over I was laughing so hard. The reader does an excellent job(many a good book has been ruined by a bad choice of reader).
