Omg I hated this. It has the potential to be so interesting but the narration is horrendous and so boring. I got through the first story and cannot continue

I'm sorry but this narrator totally ruins what is a good book. He speaks in a way that there are breaks where there shouldn't be breaks. He mispronounces plenty and the worst for me - he is wrong in so many places. For example - Federer was born in Switerland and then goes on to say about how Pete Sampras beat the Swede! It's painful to listen to. The stories themselves are really good if you can bear with the narration.
