    Enjoyed the pickpocket story

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    NY'r has cut back on content over the last year. Fewer articles and writers are not bad but not up to NYs quality expectations.

    If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?

    I'll give the NY'r audible one more year- if it continues to shrink, journalistically and literally, I'll drop it next year.

    What does Dan Bernard and Christine Marshall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For the most part, these are pros.

    Was The New Yorker, January 7th 2013 (Adam Green, Lauren Collins, Hendrik Hertzberg) worth the listening time?

    Ehhhh- pickpicket was an interesting listen.. everything else ZZZZZZZZ
