Biography & Memoir • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Former NEW YORK TIMES investigative reporter Kurt Eichenwald narrates his harrowing and moving memoir, providing listeners a firsthand account of his experiences with epilepsy. This isn't a simple story about a young man with a diagnosis; Eichenwald's condition manifests in seizures, confounding medical professionals, some of whom are shockingly incompetent. Eichenwald delivers difficult accounts of discrimination at his college and in employment, as offers to work as a journalist are given and then promptly rescinded. Eichenwald shares some of his narrative duties with family, friends, colleagues, and authority figures who have known him throughout his life, providing diverse perspectives. These passages expand the story for listeners as they hear voices from the author's past and present. The additions add to the uncompromising and ultimately inspiring theme of this audiobook.
