Last night, I finished listening to the audiobook version of The Way I Heard It by Mike Rowe, narrated by the author, on Scribd. Below is my review of this book. Enjoy!
The Way I Heard It by Mike Rowe is a captivating collection of short stories that will entertain and educate readers. Best known for his work as the host of the hit television show Dirty Jobs, Rowe showcases his storytelling prowess in this book, which is a tribute to his love of history and his talent for sharing interesting tales.
The book is structured like a series of episodes, with each story occupying a chapter. Each chapter begins with a seemingly innocuous story that leaves the reader guessing, only for Rowe to reveal the subject’s true identity in a dramatic twist. This style keeps the reader engaged and wanting to know what comes next, even when they think they know the story’s ending.
Beyond the storytelling, what makes this book truly stand out is Rowe’s passion for the subjects he covers. From the unsung heroes of the space program to the forgotten icons of Hollywood, each story is infused with his admiration and respect for the people who have significantly impacted our society. Rowe’s appreciation for hard work and perseverance shines through in each chapter, making this book an inspiring read.
The Way I Heard It is a must-read for anyone who loves great stories, fascinating history, and captivating characters. Rowe’s wit, charm, and expert storytelling skills will keep you turning the pages, leaving you enlightened and inspired. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an entertaining and informative read.
