The book itself was quite technical in parts so was tough to transmit to the audio format. However, this was just made worse by awful awful narration and many references to diagrams that obviously the listener couldn't see. These diagrams should have been made available as a pdf like many other audiobooks do. Narration was truly woeful with many mispronunciations so bad they have to be heard to be believed.
Hard to get past these issues. The best audiobooks consider the format translation from print to audio. This book just seemed like it was decided just to pick the quickest and crudest way possible to try to cash in on the audiobook market
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Longtime Audible users will know that on rare occasions a narrator can completely ruin a book. That is the case here. I was excited to learn about the subject, but the narration of this book is nearly unbearable.
The narrator reads every sentence like he is announcing the headline of an upcoming news story, seems to have no idea what he is talking about, and cannot connect ideas between sentences. It almost sounded like the book was being read by an illiterate high school student making a joke out of reading in class by trying to draw attention to himself.
I feel sorry for the author.
