Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

This book, written by the former Carter Administration insider, tells the story of the author's bouts with cancer and is interspersed with tidbits about his upbringing and his government experiences. It's a short work, but it packs emotional punch. Tom Stechschulte narrates the book with authority and clarity. He reads with passion when called for and relates Jordan's life experiences in an even, confident tone. Stechschulte creates vivid characters from Jordan's past, including an assortment of Southerners ranging from his uncle to Jimmy Carter. He also gets to do some singing, and he can certainly carry a tune. What Stechschulte does best though is to give us a sense of Jordan's urgency once he's diagnosed with cancer. He speaks well for Jordan and shows us his will to live. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
