Interesting but didn't like the narrator

I found the narrator difficult to listen to. I found her voice irritating and felt that had a negative impact on the book. The subject matter was quite interesting and time will tell if the techniques are successful.

I was grateful to have this summary rather than read the whole book, mostly found it useful and full of common sense but took away a few details I'll consider further
