What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The book read like a list of facts, with very few interesting storylines and no flair in the writing. Other books about Steve Nash, Arnold Schwartzenegger, and others provided interesting stories, not just a basic biography.
Has Patrick Ewing turned you off from other books in this genre?
No, just this author and reader.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I'm a big Ewing fan and have enjoyed other books about players from my high school era - I couldn't wait to get back and listen more - but this was boring. It provided facts about Ewing's life, but that's about it. It would have been a great encyclopedia entry, but neither the writing nor the reading provided any flair or anything that kept my interest.
