Excellent

With so many great audiobooks available, this one stands out. I laughed and I cried so hard, if anyone saw me they would think I was crazy. Be prepared for a life story so emotionally charged you will need to pause, but you won’t be able to put it down. Inspirational in ways most books like this fall short.

Inspiring and Uplifting

I have loved Anthony Griffith for years. I think you have to be very intelligent to be clean in humor and communication, so I have appreciated his talent and class. Learning about his background and life, along with that of his amazing wife, was very enjoyable, heartbreaking, and uplifting. I loved this book.
