Rob Lowe’s book, “Stories I Only Tell My Friends” is a wonderful and entertaining account of his life. I was inspired to purchase the book after being impressed by his podcast “Literally”. Rob gives a great account of the struggles in his early life and what inspired him to become an actor. The fate and kismet of his personal relationships is fascinating. His maturity from party boy to loving father and husband is inspiring. Would recommend this to anyone. Kev Toohey

I am a big fan of the Ace Man and enjoy his insights into our current state of affairs. I listened to this audiobook and it is a great platform for Adams work. It is very timely and would recommend to anyone (unless they are easily offended).

David Goggins has a truly inspiring story. His drive to succeed and overcome the hurdles in front of him is a story of hard work, determination, perseverance and courage. Enjoyable format with interludes where he expands on stories and explains his mindset during certain situations. Highly recommend.

Fascinating insight into the career of FBI Negotiator Gary Noesner. His dedication to his duties and his development of this law enforcement tool, not only in America but Internationally is truly remarkable. The audiobook format works well as he narrates the book himself and his inflection and tone help illustrate his story. He provides a balanced view and is respectful towards colleagues who adopted differing approaches to situations and allows the outcome to highlight which approach yielded the more desired result. Highly recommend. Kev Toohey- Australia.

I have just completed the audiobook. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s an interesting, breezy, heartfelt, honest and hilarious memoir of Greg’s life focussing on his family and career. He has his issues and is totally self aware of his shortcomings but completely owns them and talks of his struggles to address them and improve as a person. It’s beautiful to hear about the love he has for his family. Highly recommend to anyone.

Loved it. I am a fan of Archer and Bobs Burgers and love the velvet voice of H. Jon Benjamin. His life story is so funny and a refreshing change from a biography that speaks of continual success when in reality the stories of embarrassment, failure and disaster are always so much more entertaining. This title is perfect for the Audiobook listener.

Just finished the audiobook. Simply outstanding. Can’t wait to give it a repeat listen! In school you learn a very polished/clean Australian History. It rings so true that the early European settlement was pretty loose with plenty of fornicating, fighting and thieving. This is a very fun look at the history and the well known names and characters that shaped those early years. Highly recommend this book. Kev Toohey- Australia

Although it's only a short book, it has a powerful message. There are simple life lessons- mainly about not quitting and accepting that life is not always fair and it's up to you to keep moving forward. Being a good person- a good team guy- will have a positive influence on those around you and on yourself. Really enjoyed the book and the message it delivers. Thank you.

A fascinating book. The Chapter about the Bin Laden raid is a stand out, but the detail about the SEAL training and subsequent Missions are excellent. I really respect the Authors obvious love for his Country, family and Team mates. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
