If. Poem by Rudyard Kipling

Rudyard Kipling plainly and with great insight describes what masculinity really is, He has a skill at succinctness and plain talking. I printed this poem up and gave it to my son when he was young. He still has the poem.

Where does IF rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

If is a poem by Kipling giving advice to his son. A classic that was once frowned upon but is now making a comeback.

What does Michael Caine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A beautiful voice with excellent diction

Any additional comments?
