LIFE TO THE EXTREME How a Chaotic Kid Became Americas Favorite Carpenter

by | Read by Ty Pennington

Biography & Memoir • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

"Trading Spaces" host and carpenter Ty Pennington, who has attention deficit disorder, offers a scattered, difficult-to-follow narration of an otherwise fascinating life story. Pennington frequently shares the fact that he wrote this entire work in seven consecutive days. The self-appointed "Ambassador of Goodness," who is quite charitable in his day-to-day life, narrates with characteristic charm, and with out-of- logical-sequence starts and stops as well as frequent repetition of points made just a moment or two earlier. While the story and the performance are profoundly relaxed and sincere, the narrator's tone and pacing along with the tangential content compromises the work as a whole. Reportedly, there are entertaining sketches, font variations, and graphical elements in the printed version. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
