Interesting chronological book of P. T. Barnum before the fame and wealth. Good narrator chosen to voice his early journey

Certainly not a full biography of his life, it does include some interesting stories. His bold way of life was probably rare for his time. I appreciated his understanding of what catches a person's imagination.
