Timely in a timeless way

Really good performance, the reader well suited to the topic. Good voice, will listen to Alan Taylor again with pleasure
The book is a gem, a reminder of the simple, fair, polite ways one should behave in order to succeed. And how important it is to be yourself, not somebody else's expectation of you.
A good read!
