Incredibly important story for all Canadians to hear. The narration was wonderful. The story is hard to hear at times, but so important to reflect on - for all of us.

I had to put this book down for a month about halfway through before I could pick it up again. It was hard to listen to the author's recollections of the same violent manipulations and careless accidents over and over again, and even harder to listen to the author's endless attempts to justify or rationalise the violence. This isn't a criticism of the author, exactly, but it was just too much for me. The narration and performance was amazing, though; probably one of the only reasons I gave it another try.

Too many loose threads that don't get tied up. I think this is a stylistic choice on behalf of the author, but I was so invested in this story that I am sad to feel like there's so much missing from the ending. I did enjoy it up to the end, and the narration was amazing!

Gripping narrative, fantastic narration

Beautifully written narrative of the Obama presidency interwoven with Rhodes' own personal journey. I only wish that it was longer.

I thought I was looking for some motivational tips and tricks, but what I actually needed was this book.
