Great content, mediocre storyteller

As much as I love Jonathan Watson as Frank, he doesn't give this book the panache or pizzazz that either Cameron Stewart gave the original three books or that Brian Cox gives the character in the BBC media.

Other than that, the content of the book is hilarious, and gave me a few belly laughs, but the impact would have been greater if Watson's delivery had been better or more enthusiastic throughout, as opposed to reading the material instead of engaging with it and becoming Bob.

Cameron Stewart would have been a better choice.
