I loved this audiobook! What I appreciated most was how the connection and calculation of information and money was made. It helped to paint a better picture of how things were then and are today.

Put them together and you have the funniest, most heartfelt, and most inspirational memoir on survival, success, and the importance of believing in yourself since Old Yeller.

Really liked it. Longer than I expected but with Kevin as the narrator that made it well worth it. His many setbacks were painful to listen to but the lessons he learned and shared have application in common everyday life.

Very informative. I think I will start but I'm sure I will need to reference several chapters, pages, and paragraphs and will have to work hard to stay on course. Not sure how she will react but I think her language is acts of service. We shall see :-)
