99% True: Almost a National Bestseller Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Paul McGowan tells all (and then some) in this riotous tale of misbegotten success that’s 99 percent true in all the best ways. From his not-so-innocent youth growing up in the shadow of Disneyland and summer evenings in the innocent 1950s, to his dope-smoking, snake-eating, draft-dodging, loony-bin misadventure through Europe, to his struggles to build a thriving enterprise from a stack of dusty albums - see how the CEO of a worldwide company took 50 years to become an overnight success.
Unlike Paul, you may never get picked up by the secret service or carry the shame of bankruptcy, but you just might see yourself in his repeated failures or in his refusal to let life keep him down. You’ll laugh and you’ll cry as Paul describes the struggle of finding his place in a community you never knew existed. Through it all, you’ll discover what Paul did: life’s detours offer the best opportunities to find your way.

Having followed Paul for a while now, watching his YouTube videos and admiring the way he can simplify the most complex concepts and explain them to the non-technically minded I was delighted to see him maintain the same clarity in his life story. You don't need to be a high-end audio freak to enjoy this roller-coaster ride!
