#1 bio in my 300-book AudibleBook library

"Cover-to-cover With the Bark Off is an extraordinarily insightful, masterly written contemporary biography. But the Audible book, narrated by the author and including soundbites from the gripping events and renowned subjects, ranks #1 among the nearly 300 Audible Books in my library."

George Dillman

Great Stories, Lived and
Well Told By the Author


Fascinated with the breadth of stories Neal Spelce has to share in this book. What a trip - his decades with the LBJ family, his coverage of the UT tower shootings, the years spent in radio and TV, and much more. He's a master at weaving stories, and he blends his words with actualities of the time, making this one of the better audiobooks I've listened to lately. Really enjoyed it!
