Richard Ayoade proves again that you can be as genius and hilarious. This book is so dense I’ll need to listen again to pick up the jokes I missed the first time. Brilliant.

I read Seth Speaks 20 years ago. This version really bought it to life and I really enjoyed it. I can't wait to listen to more in this series!

I'm not a Rob Lowe fan but have always admired his work. This book was awesome. Amazing, personal and candid stories and insights about a unique person living a truly unique life.

If you could sum up Detours in three words, what would they be?

Prosaic, Thoughtful and Authentic

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well, its about Tim, right? I admire Tim's honesty so much. He ranges between his upbringing, touring, his relationships and his personal trials with aplomb. There's so much history. It's not salacious. It's true and laden with emotion.

What does Tim Rogers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Hearing Tim reads this elevates the experience so much. You can hear the character in the words and he brings every story to life. The doubt. The joy. The frustration. It's all there in his voice. I particularly love his imitations. The phone call with his mum is truly wonderful.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Tim Rogers: You've got 'im all wrong, mate.

Any additional comments?

I loved this book so much more than I expected. I love Tim's flair and willingness to follow his own narrative. It's not chronological and probably makes perfect sense to him. It's totally Tim and I'm grateful for it. What a wonderful book.
