I really enjoyed the casual, entertaining writing style from the author. And, the narrator did a wonderful job bringing it all to life in an appropriate southern accent. While the comparisons to Nickled and Dimed are hard to avoid, I thought the author produced a compelling message and pleasant alternative to alot of the negativity today. He seemed like an intrinsically more optimist, hopeful person than Barbara Ehrenrich. Some parts of the dialog felt more like a reality TV show than an essay on why the American Dream is still achievable, but I didn't consider that a bad thing, as long as you are not just looking for a serious coverage of the topic, but wanting equal parts entertainment. He really brought it back together in the epilogue and formulated his conclusions in a compelling way in the end. Great job and I highly recommend it!

What made the experience of listening to Scratch Beginnings the most enjoyable?
That someone would have the guts to give up all & go off looking to enrich themselves through experience while helping others.
What did you like best about this story?
The simple proof that with hardwork & long term thinking anyone can go anything they wish. There are no limits, only those imposed by you.
Have you listened to any of Peter Berkrot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
no, i have not.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Any additional comments?
The moving company section of the book went on & on a bit.. There was way too much detail about this to the point some parts were boring. That aside, great listen.
