Gordon Bell describes his method of recording and storing every detail of his life into digital format for later access. He calls the collection "My Life Bits." In his obsessive collecting, Bell includes miles walked, names from his high school yearbook, his daily weight, thousands of emails, and the videos of his coronary angiograms. At present, neither the technology nor the funds to expand the Total Recall project exist. Narrator John Haag sounds like he could very well be this Type-A entrepreneur and salesman who knows little economy of words. Haag makes no attempt—either with a pause or a change of voice—to indicate quoted material. Further, he interprets the author’s overstated message with the aggressive, upbeat tone of a personal-improvement audiobook. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
