Pleasantly concise and engaging, despite narrator.

I'm admittedly a fan of Peterson so the original detail specifically about his childhood and early academic life was very captivating for me. that alone was worth the $5 I paid. the second half of the book was also a nice summary of His political stance and future Direction since gaining so many years of the public.

All that praise aside, the narrator read this book like a first grade teacher would read a fairy tale. Almost to the point of absurdity. I guess the author is either related to her or didn't get a say in who narrated it. This was the only downside and the reason it didn't 5 stars.

Didn't mind the performance

A nice short listen about how Professor Peterson became famous. I didn't mind the narrator.

An interesting story, a HORRIBLE narrator

The story is interesting and timely. But the narrator is like a robot, not much different from Alexa or GPS navigator ladies. It was very difficult to concentrate on content with such a narrator.

ABOUT this man is NOT FROM this man.

I erred in reading this book ABOUT Dr. Pwterson BEFORE reading material BY Dr. Peterson.

Meh....

It's a little deeper than what you'd find on wikipedia, but essentially it made its money filling a hole in the market when it came out. Wish I hadn't got it.
