Interesting and insightful
Great book (I imagine) Dreadful narration
No - and simply because of the narration
Wish I had a chance to hear more - I am an admirer of Tanya Byron and enjoy how she writes elsewhere. This was all paid for and I waited for release with great interest. However, the narration is beyond irritating so as to distract from what is being said.
Silly, unconvincing voices which add nothing to a story and are beyond cliche.I really feel a good narrator could just have spoken - I feel fairly sure that when Tanya Byron gives an example of her work with clients she does not affect a a silly offensive voice to match. As listeners I feel confident we would be able to discern who was saying what. So disappointed and will now order a tangible version of this book as a to read for myself - hopefully I will have thrown off the terrible voices by then.
Yes, the opening chapter spoken beautifully by Tanya Byron
This is the first review I have ever left in years of Audible membership - I felt compelled and hope it stops others from wasting their money on it until such time as it is recorded well.
