Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Michael Bybee’s deep and rich voice works well with this book, giving it some gravitas. We learn who is polite and who is nasty to the agents, the public, and other public servants, and we learn about our leaders’ habits and, yes, vices. Bybee paces himself well and varies his pitch and tone to keep the anecdotes moving.” AudioFile
