Still enjoyable!!!

Alehra ,

Very entertaining

A candid, colorful, and unforgettable autobiographical tale. Barry McArdle knows how to engage an audience, and he does it in this story as effectively as he did when hawking moon acres on college campuses. I'm reluctant to take it off my iPhone even though I've finished listening to it - I just don't want to let it go. Well worth the listen!
