Overall a great book, very interesting.
One drawback to the audio is the narrator's inability to pronounce some words correctly. The first time you think to yourself that he misspoke and it wasn't picked up in the editing process. Then it happens again and again, simple words are mispronounced, examples are "malevolence" pronounced as "mail-volence" or minute as in "minute detail" pronounced as "minnit detail". Every chapter contains at least two or three such examples and it becomes increasingly irritating each time. Otherwise it's worth a listen.
What did you love best about Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson?
assuming what was presented is thoroughly researched and accurate [and it seems to be] this is a book that all people of all colors should be familiar with.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson?
the blatant ways that jesse jackson put himself ahead of anyone and anything.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
in every conceivable way. he is unfamiliar with many words but mispronounces them with consistency. it appears he had never pre-read this book and therefore has pauses and mis-places emphasis throughout the performance.
Any additional comments?
if this book could be available by a different narrator it would be great. many times throughout the book i considered turning it back in and getting a replacement, but the content is so valuable that i am going to keep it. this might end up being a book i will actually purchase in hard copy.
if you can suffer through the narrator, this really will be an eye-opener of a book!
