Most Helpful

Badly narrated.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one. The narrators voice is uninspiring, his intonation is all over the place, and there are extended pauses in the audio which should have been edited out. This is inexcusable for a book concerned with improving communication skills as it makes for very uncomfortable listening. If anything, this an example of how NOT to communicate.

What could Ian Tuhovsky have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Chosen a better narrator. I also found the style of writing to be clumsy and at times plain weird - possibly because the book has been translated.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He ruined it.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?

Having listened to many audio books this is very amateurish and to be avoided. I am surprised Audible sell it. The high scoring reviews for this audio book raise questions as to their authenticity.

Narrator is terrible, book is above average

I liked some of the content in the book but it's nothing spectacular after reading it twice and listening once.
I bought both the Kindle ebook and the audiobook for Whispersync. However, the narrator has the same lazy tone throughout as if he just got out of bed with a cold and is reading it for the first time. He seems to make up the words as he goes along in places and keeps adding in silly filler words and says things backwards that is quite annoying.
The book does have a couple of good sections such as Chapter 18 Eye Accessing Cues. Would never listen to this narrator again though - sounded so terrible.
