Really Inspiring. Love it.

Loved this book. The narrator didnt put me to bed. The stories of these folks are really inspiring, just a reminder that all of us can become the very best version of ourselves. Tiffany Haddish.

Interesting. Great for the family to listen to.

interesting. A lot of information for people who like celebrities. this is a good book for the family to listen to because there's not profanity. I don't remember hearing any. Rhe reader has trouble with the letter s it is very pronounced so when he did Beyonce we could hear the letter s for her name and any other words with the s with the whistling sound. otherwise I give this four stars all around.

GREAT READ!

I loved it. I'm fascinated with biographies. I enjoy learning about the different aspects of famous people (their beginnings, struggles and triumphs)! The narration was great. The author did a great job with the character details. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Disappointing

Reads like a Wikipedia entry or IMDB credit list. I had hoped for a more narrative approach.

Unreadable

This book is written like a series o finds me school essays; it contains a list of facts rather than a set of inspiring life stories. Very disappointing.
