I enjoyed this book very much. I read it in hard copy first and wanted to go through it again in audio. Kevin Sorbo has a very pleasant voice and because he is reading his own story, it feels almost like he's talking to you. The chapters read by his wife are pleasant as well. I would recommend this to any one who is a Hercules, or Kevin Sorbo fan. There is so much more to the actor and his personal life than was ever made public.

Would you listen to True Strength again? Why?
I already have plans to listen to this book a second time because there was so much detail, so much information that Kevin and Sam openly shared about everything that took place in a way that left them naked to criticism. They held nothing back when they described everything that happened and that helped me through such horrible memories of a family member who was very dear to me that suffered a stroke. Of course I loved all the little stories about what happened on the various shows where Kevin and Sam were performing. They were places where I laughed - lots of those, and places where I cried as well.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My knee-jerk response would be to say why Kevin of course - the book is his autobiography after all. But in reality I can't separate Kevin from Sam, I see them as a single unit and therefore I say both are my favorite character
Which scene was your favorite?
The closing chapter because it shows true growth and closure. I won't elaborate to be certain I don't give anything away.
What did you learn from True Strength that you would use in your daily life?
To see something that at first seems to be a negative may actually be a gift.
Any additional comments?
I knew Kevin and Sam from the years I was an avid Hercules and Andromeda fan. After hearing this book in their own voices I feel I have glimpsed behind the screen to see two genuine loving people who have struggled with what life throws at us all. And somehow seeing how they came through it gives me hope that I can come through the problems that face me also.

This is without a shadow of a doubt the best book I've listened to since joining Audible.
Kevin and Sam's story should be compulsory listening for anyone who is going through a life changing illness or accident.

I love Kevin Sorbos' voice it is calming and rich. well read and made me contemplate my own self/shadow and impact that had on me post a significant medical issue. whilst i have never been an athlete at the same level i too realised i was not immortal in my mid 40's so the account resonated with me on a number of levels. great listen.
