I am shocked this book won an award. The story of his journey with a rare disease could have been inspiring or uplifting; however it was just hours of jumbled rambling. His medical history that is interesting could have been told in about thirty minutes. I know audible is advertising this book as an excellent insight to the life of someone with a medical condition. I am honestly reviewing this book, so I will admit that I also have had a pituitary tumor. Having gone through many similar things the author describes, it was a huge let down to have listened...waiting to feel a connection with the author. I am not sure why he decided to narrate the book himself, but it is as bad as the content. His voice is monotone with no inflection and no passion about his own story. My husband asked me several times to please turn it off when he was home because of his extreme dislike of the author's voice. Also if you haven't had a pituitary tumor you will not understand what he is talking about when referring to procedures, medications, and adrenal crisis, which he says he has had but never explains what or why it is important. I know i have been harsh but please save your time, money, or credit for something else.

I enjoyed the book thoroughly, the perceptions, the wit, the progression of the narrative. But in addition to the excellent story/memoir, I was particularly impressed with the effectiveness of the author's own voice. I can't imagine anybody else doing a better job.
