Smug Author

I was turned off by much of this book because the author chose to brag about himself in an attempt to impress the listener rather than letting his admittedly great knowledge do the work for him.

Make it to chapter 6!

Would you consider the audio edition of How to Disappear to be better than the print version?

No. The subject matter gets pretty detailed and complex for just an audio book. I bought the hard copy as well.

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

I like the guys voice. It reminds me of the old school noir crime drama tales.

Any additional comments?

I almost quit after the first few chapters. The author spends most of them telling outrageous stories and seemingly exaggerating his experience and resume. I thought the book would just be a bunch of BS... but FINALLY on chapter 6/7.. it really got into the meat of the subject. The how tos and the why's and everything clicked. Turns out I believe all the crap he was spewing the first few chapters. Definitely gave me a new perspective on the way I conduct personal affairs.
