This book is incredible, a barely believable story about one of the most charismatic and strange figures in the recent history of the USA. Unfortunately the reading was not good at all, I am very tolerant of audiobook readings, I go with the flow generally, but this was one of the worst I have listened to, words mispronounced and not just once but the same word mispronounced several times in different ways; and making dramatic pauses in a sentence is fine but to do it in completely random places in the sentence is not.
What did you love best about The Crusades of Cesar Chavez?
It showed his development as a leader in an honest way, so that future leaders can use his life like a case study on effective leadership, and see the "lid" that kept him from growing outside of California. The book worked hard to cut through the hero worship and honestly show the real man.
What about Jackson Gutierrez’s performance did you like?
He is obviously a Spanish speaker, and narrated in a way that made Chavez sound real. I had to speed his voice up to 1.5x to make it sound right to me, because he speaks very slowly, but overall, he has a compassionate, funny, emotionally on key voice.

Great narration at a good pace. I was really fascinated about the in depth and unbiased look into this amazing man. This is probably the most comprehensive look into the life of Cesar Chavez out there.
