I so remember and miss the days ofPaul Harvey's news, commentary, and of course "The Rest of the Story". It was so refreshing to relive those days through this wonderful book. However similar, it does take a new and refreshing turn that keeps the reader glued and wanting more. I so hope Mike decides to write another book.
Always liked Paul Harvey the Rest of the Story and found this book to be just as interesting.
Enjoyed reading the stories that had been featured on the podcast and loved the personal stories in between.
Since I'm a fan of Mikes, I could hear his voice reading this book to me. I laughed I cried. Great stories!
Fun book, with lots of personal history and great stories. My favorite chapter that explains his admiration and love for his Dad. Of course, his Mom plays in there too. Easy read and for fans of Mike Rowe explains a lot that we didn't know. A great gift for the Holidays
