You will discover what is keeping you stuck in shyness and learn exactly what to do in order to break free.

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Spectacles, the hilarious, creative and incredibly moving memoir from much loved comedian, writer and presenter Sue Perkins. When I began writing this book, I went home to see if my mum had kept some of my stuff. What I found was that she hadn't kept some of it. She had kept all of it - every bus ticket, postcard, school report....

In the 1980s, Elton John saw friend after friend, loved one after loved one, perish needlessly from AIDS. In the midst of the plague, he befriended Ryan White, a young Indiana boy ostracized by his town and his school because of the HIV infection he had contracted from a blood transfusion. Ryan's inspiring life and devastating death led Elton to two realizations: His own life was a mess. And he had to do something to help stop the AIDS crisis.

So enjoyed listening to this audiobook. Elton's narration was perfect, spoken with depth and warmth and from the heart.

Great to better understand how his foundation works and insights into his life.

Can we bring more meaning to our lives and help change the world at the same time? Richard Branson, at his brilliant and motivating best, reveals how with his exciting new vision for the future. It is time to turn capitalism upside down - to shift our values, to switch from a profit focus to caring for people, communities, and the planet.

Narration issue

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 13-09-12

I am a fan of Mr Branson and what he stands for. I enjoyed his original autobiography in paperback form some years ago. So was eager to listen to this latest issue.



For me and no offence to Adrian Mulraney the narrator but I find his style impossible to listen to as much as I have tried. For me a narration if not by the author should reflect the style of Mr Branson, a listener should almost be able to hear and feel it's Mr Branson saying it. But this narration seems at complete odds with Mr. Branson's style and makes me feels its not coming from him.



Disappointment is not the word!



I did listen to the sample before purchase which did not have the same effect.
