George Newbern performs this memoir by a journalist who became famous after he wrote about President Biden's stutter and how he overcame it. Hendrickson, who also has a stutter, shares his childhood experiences of visiting speech therapists and trying to work around his disability. Newbern captures Hendrickson's anguish over encounters with internalized ableism and an educational system that wasn't equipped to help students with disabilities. As Hendrickson describes his research into his speech impediment, Newbern delivers the sounds of different types of stutters, as described in detail in the audiobook. With his ability to create emotional intimacy between the text and the listener, Newbern demonstrates his impressive skills as a narrator.
