When I had Stroke by Hit & Run driver, Rollo Tomassi (my Mr. Miyagi) Risked & Believed in Restoration of my Voice Acting
That's Rollo Tomassi. When all other scripts ceased because, as voice actor, I had a stroke caused by hit and run accident impact, and the nightmarish stroke caused issues that we all fear became reality. I remember being shown my spinal fluid that's normally clear. It was full of blood. Doctors told me I would be able to do... well that's just not me! I was in 24/7 inpatient care, I'd never used my real name in my voice acting life (the work I dreamt of and started working toward at age seven). The art I so wanted to do that I lived out of my car, showered at the gym in the early days doing work for free, obsessively driven to have that in demand, missing, series of sounds and delivery in one take in the studio. All that changed in a moment. OROLLO TOMASSI, at the time, had released what was going to be his master work, his only book. It was (and is) a runaway hit - a best selling book and Kindle in multiple categories, so ROLLO TOMASSI had more to lose than ever. He realized that Audible.com is extremely popular and that men, surprisingly a large percentage of men- listen to audiobooks. He was bombarded with requests for an Audible version. So please share with ROLLO TOMASSI that you realize the kind of person he is. Medical professionals weren't exactly encouraging about my abilities being restored. By taking the risk on my voice acting abilities that no one would - when I couldn't have a conversation, couldn't get the words in my mind out in speech, and I had years of 24/7 inpatient care to go.i had had the ultimate dream of being "that voice" .. but it was all over. ROLLO TOMASSI could've made a lot more money if he hadn't waited more than two years for THE RATIONAL MALE VOLUME 1 audiobook release on Audible in April 2016. Other voice actors could've made a more conversational production, but he waited with only belief, confidence and encouragement with every setback, hospital, a year of 24/7 inpatient care, then months more 24/7 inpatient care in 2015 which caused more delay! Every night in inpatient care the first year caregivers propped me up and were there as I struggled to narrate 'The Rational Male Volume 1' a phrase at a time, but every phrase had a common word my brain wasn't ready to pronounce. Most phrases in that first Rollo Tomassi volume had to be spoken more than 100 times. I was up hours earlier than other patients with caregivers helping me learn to walk in the pools at Equinox. The sane after inpatient care day with caregivers because walking and speech go together. In voice acting, breathing, like the ability to get in character, is everything! It was back to square one, learning the basics of everything all over again ! That relentless drive, the vision of how things will be, the complete rebuilding of all abilities became the obsession as I had one script when all others had ceased. I had read comments from men that.said what's written in this book had saved their marriage, had kept them from committing suicide... and there were s lot of them! "THE RATIONAL MALE VOLUME 1" with so many lives saved, so many readers becoming their own success stories because of it, and millions of men would read it if they could hear it narrated by a professional voice actor. That was me, but I was learning to walk, learning normal speech and learning to voice act with the one script that was the ultimate purpose for getting up early and being the hardest working inpatient care patient ever. Soon Audible will replace the current version of "The Rational Male Volume 1" with new narration of it I'm finishing, but if you've heard the first Volume, you're hearing determination a phrase at a time where every phrase had a normal word my brain couldn't make me produce. It was through years of that ROLLO TOMASSI COULD HAVE GIVEN UP, BUT HE DIDN'T! Rollo Tomassi states in "THE RATIONAL MALE - PREVENTIVE MEDICINE VOLUME 2" how he doesn't want us to be Rollo Tomassi success story, he wants us to read (listen) to his books so that we will be our own success stories to be the men we want and need to be. THE ONE SCRIPT WHEN ALL OTHERS CEASED cane from an artiist, owner of international brands, and author that I came to realize is THE MOST GENEROUS, KIND, CONFIDENT, ENCOURAGING, PATIENT MAN!
A few people close to me didn't want me to narrate anymore Rollo Tomassi book volumes. How quickly they had forgotten that Rollo Tomassi did what no other person, man or woman, did. His first book was a best seller with sales increasing weekly (still increasing now four years after the paperback and Kindle appeared on Amazon.com
The haters should understand the kind of person Rollo Tomassi is. H gave me the only script when it made no sense to do so. It' has been the reason to keep improving every ability, skill and talent! It is the reason I'm alive because, without the one life-saving script, my life's work was over, and understanding how many people had said it saved their lives. My life was being saved because the author Rollo Tomassi risked it all, so I had and still have the responsibility to obsessively continue to improve my voice acting because, now that I've gotten to know Rollo Tomassi and family, the heart of this man doesn't care about the money. He's young, but he's self made, and he could retire tomorrow. He still works in his brands and as highly sought after artist because he enjoys it. It's like voice acting, it's fun. It's like breathing, life wouldn't be life without it. Rollo Tomassi (my Mr. Miyagi) believed and KNEW I'd come this far when it was difficult to see or hear it.
The audiobook "THE RATIONAL MALE - PREVENTIVE MEDICINE VOLUME 2" by Rollo Tomassi was expected here on Audible early summer 2016. Again, there were hospital stays, more strokes and I died again in the hospital. As I write this, the screen isn't the same with new blindness caused by a stroke from leftover blood in my brain caused by the hit and run accident in 2014.Again, Rollo Tomassi, with literally thousands of readers tweeting, commenting, emailing Rollo Tomassi demanding the Audible version, he was cool, calm, patient and through it all he protected me from the "what's the holdup" and said, "Sam, I don't want to publish 'Volume 2' until you're happy with it."
I've tried to explain to the few that are bothered that I use my real name as narrator on Rollo Tomassi works. I tell them that it started when his brother in law hung himself from a tree after his wife he'd worked his whole life to.give every thing she and the children wanted... she told him she was divorcing him(for a decay millionaire with a large corporation). The tree was in the back yard of the new dream home he'd just finished building for her. Within months after her husband died, she had sold the house and, with the money, had purchased a new Porsche, new breasts and she still spoke as one deeply religious. Rollo Tomassi studied behavioral psychology at university, and through Internet forums, websites, his own blog http://www.therationalmale.com (with 7 million regular readers) he's written more than 7,000 essays and his work has unmoderated comment sections which has resulted in Rollo Tomassi's choice to fund the largest study on dating, relationships and marriage in history. This book will make you angry at times, and it'll make you laugh because you know that part is so true since you've experienced or seen it in others. It'll bring you to tears for the hurt you experienced or for knowing that so many are heading toward what will be like a tragedy without this knowledge and the choice to make personal changes. This book is filled with connected dots that are now concepts that, if learned and become life habits, are self improvements that enhance your appearance, your mannerisms, your bearing and so many other life elements that are helpful in the workplace. Too many people fear your self improvements - they are not your friends. When you listen to this Audible book "THE RATIONAL MALE - PREVENTIVE MEDICINE VOLUME 2" you'll experience what millions of experiences discussed in open forums where men help other men with and through experiences - will bring you answers about human behavior you wished you'd known when you were 18, or 34 or __. "The Rational Male" volumes by Rollo Tomassi sales still increase every month with no marketing budget! It's word of mouth, because it's that powerful. For anyone that says they don't like the content, they have chosen to ignore the fact that Rollo Tomassi tells men that women and men are good, it's just that men are unaware of the way women love.. that it's different from how men love idealistically (love for loves sake).
I've listened through this (Volume 2) again. It's not perfect, but thanks to Rollo Tomassi for the ultimate incentive to restore my life and voice acting abilities. I must admit that I cried a lot in narrating this - there are parts I can remember happening to me - there are parts they've happened to people I know, and I cry thinking of the millions of people that haven't read or heard the tough love for men in this (Volume 2).
In the audio sample on this page, you can tell there are tears on my face during the last 49 seconds.
THANK YOU FOR GETTING THIS VOLUME THROUGH AUDIBLE! Even if you get it through the Audible 'new sign ups get the first book free' Audible is generous, they still pay us when you make this your first (free) book when that promotion is applied. Know that doctors told me I would die without a working service dog. Your purchase of "THE RATIONAL MALE" audiobooks has made Oliver and his $25,000 in training a reality! Thank you. Further, my excellent PPO health insurance plan doesn't cover most of the advances that keep me walking and talking. Thank you for using a credit in this one!
Lastly, the day the wonderful, super creative intelligent artist the QA Engineers that put this audiobook here after making it sound great, made this audiobook available to you (GREAT news) at the same time the second doctor told me that left eye blindness which hit suddenly, is permanent. Thankfully, together, we will defeat this blindness too! Every person that purchases or uses an audible credit to get "The Rational Male - Preventive Medicine Volume 2" by Rollo Tomassi has my gratitude as it helps rebuild my abilities! His Volume 3 recording is in progress, and I look forward to seeing it here because it's clear the dots connected by Rollo Tomassi have caused lives to be transformed and saved
"THE RATIONAL MALE - POSITIVE MASCULINITY VOLUME 3" is coming soon to Audible!

Excellent book, poor narration
This is a great book, building on and going deeper into the ideas put out in the first volume.
The only thing I don’t like is the narration. The narrator weirdly stresses almost every single word and that messes up the intonation throughout the sentence in a way that completely obstructs its meaning.

Amazing content, let down by reader
I’ve read Rollos first book and been blown away by it. This was also a brilliant book. Unfortunately I was very let down by the reader. It was robotic at times with long pauses.
Tip for anyone listening, put it to 1.5x speed to make it sound better. Plus, I love when authors read their own books! I can’t give it less than 5 stars overall as the content is phonenomenal.
