Poorly read, short, uninspired.

This hour-and-forty minute audio book should have cost 99 cents. "P.U." are his initials and could also double as the adjective to describe his reading.

He took what was universally deemed an incredibly-managed, masterful international success and turned-it into a boring retelling of what could basically be described as a mere checklist of milestones related to the '84 games, from '79 to '85.
