First let me say that I am a big fan of Mike and Mike's Radio Show, I listen to it almost every morning for at least 2 hours at my desk at work. They've been promoting the book heavily and I was excited to get to listen to it, but what a disappoinment. The formatting is clumsy and there's no real flow to it, I realize they are reading the book, but it sounds like they are reading the book, which of all the audio books I've listened to this is the first one where it really sounded like they were struggling to read something they have written. Other audiobooks let you get lost in the reading, this one smacks you back to reality every few minutes with one guy doing all the readings of the regular guests on the radio show, so one person is doing the "voices" of Stink, Dicky V, Mel Kiper Jr., John Clayton, etc.... and they all sound exactly the same. Mike and Mike also promoted on the show that their wives would be a big part of the book, in reality they have a few minutes at the very end, which is not very entertaining at all. Now did I get a few laughs out if this, yes I did, but fewer than I expected I would definitely not recommend it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?
Putting the terrible content aside, Golic's performance was lacking, but actually better than Greenberg's, who at times sounded like a child being forced to read from the pulpit during mass.
Any additional comments?
Composed of feeble attempts at humor and legitimately sad performances, this book was at times hard to listen to, but I will always love Mike & Mike and am glad to support them, just as long as they stick to radio.
