Wasted Space

The last chunk of the book is, as far as I can tell, several chapters of nothing but a flute playing. Not sure I understand why... but seems like padding to make this particular version of this classic text longer and therefore more complete.

Great book but...

It was full of great techniques and strategy. I can definitely use this in my life day to day in dealing with office politics. This book was good for the first few chapters, but the last 20 or so were just Japanese jazz flutes and drum solos. No words, just instrumentals... Yeah..

Reader is horrible

The reader of this book is second most boring and monotone I've had yet. The lines are read with a disjointed flow as if the reader is continually looking over the same sentence. I'll NEVER get another book read by Alan Munro!

good story but half the audio book is music.

hard to finish when the second half is nothing but flute music. I wanted a book but got half a musical.

Good story but half the book is Japanese flute

The book was good so was the reading. However what was thought to be an interlude is several chapters of traditional Japanese music. Totally unnecessary.

excellent audiobook, nice music too

first 10 chapters are the book and then 17 of shakuahatchi music which is quite good. I like this audiobook and recommend it fully!
