From AudioFile:

Television hero Angus MacGyver was famous for his ingenuity in using everyday objects to help him get out of various life-threatening situations. If you liked him, you'll enjoy this collection of more than forty brief accounts of improvisation to solve crises in the real world. Patrick Lawlor and Shelly Frasier's narration captures the range of emotions common to each story: the frustration and spike of despair as a problem presents itself, the dawning of hope and inspiration as a solution works itself out, and the celebration that follows. All these are touched with irony as the impromptu inventors continually imply the message, "How did I get myself into this mess?" The brevity of the stories and the wide range of situations make this collection perfect for sampling while driving. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
