Review:

"From his days as a cartoonist and world-renowned adventurer to those spent creating TV's Ripley's Believe It or Not, Robert Ripley led a fascinating life. Thompson meticulously traces Ripley's life — from his humble beginning in Santa Rosa, Calif., to his opulent ending as an international icon — in this fascinating look at a fascinating man. Narrator Marc Cashman's reading has a light and genial tone that matches the author's attitude toward his subject. Cashman's cadence also deftly captures the rhythms of the book's prose. Following the author's lead, the narrator keeps an emotional distance from his subject, while still producing an engaging audio edition that will hold listener attention throughout. A Crown Archetype hardcover. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
