Amazing listen! I would say it's more of an autobiography than a "guide to life on earth". Super interesting stories, and I did learn a little bit.

Great Listen for Hip Fans
George did a great job with the narration.
I was left wanting more stories about the Hip and wanted to hear the story behind more Hip songs.
Also wish politics were left out of it. At times it felt like there was a Liberal agenda being pushed. That was off-putting.
