Cotton’s narration of his book should be a reminder to publishers that authors sometimes don’t make good narrators. Cotton recounts his own and his friends’ rise to fame as Dude Perfect, a group that became celebrities as a result of their outrageous basketball shots posted on YouTube. As a young entrepreneur, Cotton attempts to bestow the wisdom he’s accumulated through his quick rise to popularity. Meant to be inspirational, the audiobook falls flat, in part, because of Cotton’s over-the-top narration. He delivers every sentence as if it should end with an exclamation point! It’s not only wearing but also places in high relief the hollowness of the book itself. L.E. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2012]
