An excellent, true story, well told. My only complaint is that the narration is much too fast. Numerous times I checked the speed setting, and found it at “1x” — although it sounded like at least 1.25x or even 1.5x. Still, I enjoyed the book and can recommend it.

The the book held my interest. I really liked it because it was a true story and these heroes just said yes. Ross Perot is a very interesting man. His family must be very proud of him. He was very loyal to the people who worked for him. It is definitely worth listening to.
