    I thought this was an interesting book. Listening to the guy made him sound like he was really a lot more functioning than I imagined. As this was such a NON-exact "science" that I gather there are a HUGE number of outcomes post-op. I will say that for this to be his personal story, it is a bit repetitive. Like a 5 paragraph essay that with 1) tell you what they WILL TELL you, 2) TELL you, and 3) tell you what they TOLD you... I have to blame the editing company/group for this. It was never bad enough to skip ahead or even want to skip a disc... but made me roll my eyes a bit, and probably tuned out for a moment. Its not unbarable rehashing, but its definitely there. His narration voice is just fine to listen to, I normally steer clear of male narrators, as I find them to be monotonic and plain. He did well. I sure would like to see the photos that he describes!
