Al Roker, the well-known "Today Show" cohost and weatherman, offers a career-centered memoir that also includes several humorous stories supporting his "Al-truisms"--suggested techniques for success. Despite decades of media experience, the narration is noticeably uneven. Principally, bleeping tones, familiar to listeners from television, are plentiful even within the same sentence for words that the listener can only assume are in place of words generally accepted to be curses, epithets, oaths, or otherwise objectionable. There are so many of these bleeps that listening is too often disjointed and confusing. Some passages are loud, perhaps for emphasis, but the rationale for the increased volume is not obvious. This is an otherwise charming series of reflections and suggestions that, sadly, suffers from its narration. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2020]
