The book is excellent however the narrator is the reason I give the book 4 stars. Minimal infliction in his voice, times when there was insufficient pauses between chapters or sentences and finally mispronunciation of words. I don't think the narrator did the book justice.
An autobiography written at the onset of life threatening, and ultimately life taking, cancer means that the author is likely much more reflective on arc of his life and its larger context. True Compass was possible because Ted Kennedy had already devoted significant time to an oral history through the University of Virginia's Miller Center, which was incorporated into the book. The historical perspective from the 1930's to 2009 on American society and its politics, from Ted Kennedy's personal, albeit extremely privileged perspective is worth the listen.
I found this book very interesting as alive history review. Getting first hand info, from someone living through it. He sure loved to sail.. At times it was a little boring Yet when he was sailing you could almost feel the wind in your face. I can't believe how strict his parents were. this book gives an interesting perspective on the Kennedy family.
