"Andrew provided an extremely professional reading for
my publishing company's first title, You Won't Get Fooled Again.
Actually, it was more than a reading. Drawing on his extensive
bank of voice talent, Andrew literally brought the text to life,
perfectly capturing the blend of practical information and humor
featured in the book. And he did it ahead of schedule!

our next title."
