doesn't work on audio

the abridged version is aweful. early on in the audio it feels as if the stories are cut short, then later on the audio book contradicts itself within 5 minutes (growth v value section) I can only assume there is more information within the source text, and the person responsible for abridging it simply didn't understand the content.
