    NPR

    First few chapters good, but typical of NPR radio people, he showed his liberal bias.

    Disillusioned

    I am a listener of NPR radio for many years and remember when Bob Edwards left. I guess I didn't pay much attention as I thought he had retired. He has a scratchy quality to his voice which made me envision an older gentleman who was non-judgemental and delivered the news daily. Boy was I surprised when I read this book! Not only was he younger than I thought, but very opinionated and bitter. His stories were not well written and left us asking for more, especially the story about the taxi driver who died while driving Mr. Edwards. So whatever did happen? Why tell us and then not finish the story?

    I think I was better off with my kindly gentleman image. I should have known when Sirius Radio gave it out for free.

    A hollow self serving diatribe...

    Mostly empty ramblings, each ending in "How great I art..." This book was worth every penny I paid for it...nothing.

    Disappointing

    I agree with the other reader that this was a very self-serving book. While tooting his own horn he manages to get in his left-wing zingers at the "other side" whenever possible. The real corker was when he referred to 9/11 as "some planes hit some buildings" and that it was merely an event that delayed his XM debut and not the national tragedy it really was. I'm glad this was a free book - I would have certainly regretted spending money on it.

    DULL

    Not what I expected, dull reading and a bit self-indulgent. I hoped for better from him.
