Loved the theory but could have used audio examples. Became a bit too droning without.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Granted, this is a short book at a low price point, but an audio format presented a prime opportunity to use clips of the tunes from the games being referenced to enhance the experience. The foreword even makes references to the transcription of certain scores, but those scores are not available in an audio format, despite the fact that the text (was altered to?) say "audio book" and not just "book".

Mr. Schartmann has some great insights into the music behind early video games and Nintendo. For more information, I would recommend his second book Koji Kondo’s Super Mario Bros. This book goes into much more detail about the music theory behind the NES games.
The performance by Kaleo Griffith does not do the book justice. Very disappointed in that.
