Summary

Wyburn-Mason syndrome. Ever heard of it? Dan Jeffries has, and his insightful and hilarious memoir explores what it's like living with one of the world's rarest medical conditions - and then finding out you have another one.

Told through an innovative new approach that combines the audiobook experience with modern technology, Me, Myself & Eye really lets the listener delve into Dan's life story. Use your smart-phone, tablet, or computer whilst you're listening to look at photos, medical documents, scans, videos, and even listen to music he's written over the years.

Me, Myself & Eye is a memoir that is both fascinating and insightful, told with a fresh, honest and unique voice.

5/5 must read

Dan Jefferies narrates his own experiences wonderfully and clearly, with just the perfect balance of detail and humour. It is a very easy to listen to Audiobook which will leave you chuckling at points, emotional at others and I am sure inspired.

He and I both have a brain AVM in common, in differant locations but affecting our sight. I started this Audiobook at a very difficult stage in my condition before starting treatment where I had lost some sight but knew I was at risk of losing considerably more. I was also dealing with depression coming to acceptance of my condition. Listening to Dan Jefferies honest and very open experiences has helped me alot. His mind set of "let me focus on making what may be a disadvantage in one thing, to my advantage to excel in another" was incredibly eye opening to me. He inspired me to think positively about my journey and his humour really lifted my spirits!

Something else worth noting is that this story is not just medically interesting, there are many fascinating storys covering Dan's personal life with his music, growing up and I will leave you to read the rest to find out more!

Whether your interested in rare conditions/experiences or just fancy a nice capturing book to listen to which will keep you interested through out - I highly recommend giving this a listen.

One man's life experience against the backdrop of the very rare Wyburn-Mason syndrome

This book is a really captivating read and a very personal account of a life story which is set against the backdrop of a very rare illness.
It's easy to connect with Dan (the author) through his journey. The book catalogs the discovery that the author has the very rare Wyburn-Mason syndrome and the effect this has on his appearance and general health. The book runs the gamut of personal relationships, work, music and other, often very humorous life experiences, whilst, all the while, dealing with effects of this often debilitating illness. Touching, thought-provoking and funny this book kept me engaged throughout its length and I would recommend reading it.

Disappointed

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who enjoys off color stories and is not offended by language.

What was most disappointing about Dan Jeffries’s story?

I was expected a inspirational memoir from an individual who succeeded in spite of two rare medical conditions. I did not expect profanity, inappropriate sexual content, and far too many genital stories.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Since I received a complimentary copy in exchange for a review, I really wanted to be able to write something positive but alas I did not, could not, finish listening to this book.

Humorous and compelling

Would you consider the audio edition of Me, Myself and Eye to be better than the print version?

I've not read the print version, but the fact that Dan (who trained as an actor) is reading his own words, means that of course it's better!

What did you like best about this story?

Dan is just very likeable throughout. He never tries to self-agrandise; can be thoroughly self deprecating; and finds the humour in the slightest mis-step and the greatest adversity.

What about Dan Jeffries’s performance did you like?

He's living it again as he reads. You can tell he's amused by the funny parts and deeply affected by the sad moments.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Life works out

Any additional comments?

I bought this because I went to school with Dan and was looking forward to a few nostalgic moments from our childhood. I honestly hadn't expected to find his story (and storytelling) so compelling, that even through he'd finished with school after a couple of hours I was there right to the end.

Entertaining! Amusing! Fascinating! Well narrated!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend listening to this book! Dan's narration of his own book is wonderfully entertaining! Never a dull moment, promise! I am a fellow Acromegalic and can completely relate to his history! This book is insightful and educational.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well, Dan, of course! It is, afterall, about him!

Any additional comments?

Seriously - if you like audio books, I highly recommend listening to Dan Jeffries' book! Having Dan read it himself was definitely worth it - entertaining, insightful and well, a bit of TMI sometimes, but we all have 'been there' - If you have a long trip coming up, I would definitely download this and listen to Dan's lovely voice read his own story for you! I really enjoyed it!!!
