Biography & Memoir • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Using his personal journal as a source, former “NBC Nightly News” anchor Tom Brokaw discusses his recent experiences with the treatable but incurable blood cancer multiple myeloma. Mark Bramhall provides a clear, crisp narration that is both welcoming and comforting—an approach that works well given the emotionally difficult nature of the material. Brokaw also reviews some of the key points in his life and career, moments that are carried off with aplomb in Bramhall’s strong performance. The lessons of his experience are worth hearing—specifically that surviving a grave diagnosis is significantly assisted by a “Cadillac” health insurance plan, a supportive family, and considerable financial resources. Bramhall keeps the candid story going with appropriate vigor. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
