Worth It

The book itself is an autobiography about the start of the company and how it went from an idea into the organization it is today. There is a tidy preface that sets the stage of Afghanistan as we know it. It's nice to get a brief on what was going on when Combat Flipflops got it’s start.

The story itself is fascinating without being sensationalized and I was really interested to know what happens next. For footwear-mongers, they write a decent book. I wasn’t 100% clear on which narrator was which, but I’m fairly certain it’s Griff that voices most of the book. I presume this is his first professional gig using his voice, but he comes across natural and easy to listen to. There isn’t a heck of a lot of dialogue so he doesn’t do different voices for the characters: but he doesn’t need to. This book is perfectly enjoyable without the voice acting that’s necessary for a book with a big cast like Game of Thrones or Dune. It listens more like Griff telling his story over beers and a firepit in the backyard.

I would love to hear more stories in the future, and if Griff can stand recording again all the better. Lastly it bears saying that when we buy a product like this we’re supporting an organization that’s helping make the world a better place. Whether that’s the icing on the cake, the crumbs or the cake itself this book/audiobook is worth the price IMHO.
