Publisher's Summary

For nearly forty years he has ruthlessly exploited and dominated Formula One motor racing, and now he is setting his sights further afield.... This is the true story of Bernie Ecclestone, the street-smart, working-class kid who masterminded the transformation of Formula One from an amateur sport of the fifties into a global billion dollar industry of the 21st century.
Now, with his GBP2.5bn fortune, influence and power, Bernie has moved into the world of football with Renault F1 boss Flavio Briatore to turn Queen's Park Rangers, a struggling west London club, into a serious rival to the capital's glamour club, Chelsea. To many he was the saviour of Formula One, but there are also those who came into conflict with his methods. They have a different story to tell. Bernie Ecclesone, King of Sport reveals the unbridled avarice, callousness and corruption behind the hype of Formula One - and the warts-and-all character of the man who is now making his mark on the beautiful game. This is the true, astonishing story of the single most powerful man in thew world of sport today.

Terrible Robotic Sounding Narration

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Having an audible track that DID NOT sound like a robot. Shocking and completely unlistenable.

Would you recommend Bernie Ecclestone to your friends? Why or why not?

No. Not at all.Why? See above.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Norman Gilligan?

A human.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Bernie's story is an amazing story and this audio book destroys it.

Any additional comments?

I am VERY disappointed. Audible should not be selling this sort of crap.
