The subtitle 'Learn how to speak French like a native' is misleading, this is just somebody mumbling through a list of random vocabulary as if they were in a hurry to get finished. There is no structure, no explanation of usage, the vocabulary isn't grouped into related words or phrases to aid learning and there isn't even a pause to allow the listener to repeat the phrase.
I'm trying to think of a positive to end on but all I can come up with is, perhaps it gets better further on. I wouldn't know because I didn't make it to the end.

This books gives words and phrases I've not found elsewhere. It made me love the French language more as their slang is so colourful and visual. The reading voice is pleasant and friendly and the phrases can be so funny, I had to share many with friends. It feels like this was the missing piece of my French learning.
I like the range of topics covered in these lessons. It could be improved with 1) a few seconds of silence between terms to practice, 2) more repetition, 3) more context. For example, sex vocabulary is something one would want to get right and the terms taught could be interpreted in wildly different ways. Could lead to super awkward if not criminal situations.

Complete hodge-podge of phrases you can't imagine ever needing or wanting presented in no order or context. Speaker can't pronounce anything in English so sometimes you can't tell if he's speaking French or English. I was hoping to brush up on my French (close to fluent 20 years ago) but this was not the answer.
