The Way I Heard It Audio book Reviews
As a fan of Mike Rowe I was afraid I would have heard all of these stories but I had not. And those I had heard from podcasts had additional anecdotal stories about Mike or related stories that made them as interesting as if they were first reads. Well done, Mike. This book is one I will suggest to my friends and family. Keep on doing what you do. You are a great storyteller.
“There’s nothing magical about what I do, Mike. I’m just using the tools I was given. You can be a tradesman, too, if that’s what you want to be. Heck, we’re all tradesman. The trick is to get the right toolbox.” (200)
The appeal in listening to Mike Rowe, much like this book, is his unfiltered authenticity that he charmingly brings to whoever his audience happens to be. In The Way I Heard It, Rowe takes the reader from some of the most brilliant short stories of his podcast that contain insightful observations paired with tales of famous people sprinkled with facts seemingly forgotten by time. History isn’t so much a timeline, but more a revolving circle, telling the same sort of themes over and over, seemingly as each generation forgets the defining moments of the last. It was fun to see the comparisons of different time periods and peoples, shaped by the same circumstances and fates. It’s in those bizarre unscripted moments of life that really lend to the incredible mystic of it all. It was also entertaining to see those stories juxtaposed with Mike’s own life. What a great collection of stories to be told.
