Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I knew very little about Stan Musial before reading this book and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him through Vecsey's writing. Details that may have seemed mundane early in the book, created "ah, that's why he wrote about that moments" later on.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Stan the Man!
What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?
I've listened to a couple other books that Brick was OK with. Apparently biographies are not his strong suit as he over dramatizes the reading to the point that I had to set down my iPod and walk away. Listening to this book you would think Bricks, breathy, emotionally laden description of the best cuts of meat in Stanley's restaurant was akin to the death of a Pope! I will think twice before ever getting a book read by this narrator.

The tone and pace of the author at first seem a little slow. As you get into the story you recognize that it matches perfectly. A thorough history of Stan Musial.
