If Art Bell made you feel skeptical, this will make you feel insulted

At what point does fanciful stop being entertaining? The author sets out to find this threshold, then dives far, far beneath it. Even worse is the narrator's grade school "Read for emphasis, Bobby" style. Emphasizing every fourth word confounds the listener's attempts to make sense of each sentence. Worth noting is that the author is also the publisher. No doubt the editor as well.

love Tom Siemens books but.....

most annoying voice from narrative. drives you mad as he puts emphasis on random words throughout and his timing all over the place. Can't focus on the stories because it drives you bonkers.

this book is a good listen with some good storys
its all good apart from the narrator trying to master a Liverpool accent.
its almost laughable but ruins the listening experience
