Malcolm Hillgartner's rich, expressive baritone is an ideal match for this well-written and thoroughly researched biography of Bob Hope. Steady and conversational, Hillgartner's phrasing and pace are nothing short of remarkable. Hope was an entertainment superstar in every medium, and his shrewd strategies and skillful business successes are thoroughly examined in a close look at his entire life. The work balances Hope's personal and career strengths and weaknesses with high style. The narrator's voice essentially disappears as the fascinating treasure trove of show business remembrances and anecdotes weaves the entire illuminating story. A real treat.
