If you like Mike Rowe you will love this book!
Was so good I was disappointed it ended!
Very good and fun read
I very much enjoyed Mike’s stories. Entertaining and informative.
I’ve been listening to “The way I heard it” from the beginning! This book is a great addition and fleshing out of the podcast! I have a long commute into work, so I chose the audio version of the book. Especially since Mike reads the book. Highly recommend!!
