Narrator's voice makes its boring
What were they thinking getting an American to narrate this??! The book is good, but the narrator's voice drones on and on, with no colour or inflection. It is so badly read, and the nasal tones of his voice are hard to listen to. Couldn't they have got some nice smooth English voice to narrate this great little book?

Not for laymen
The title, “A short introduction...” kind of implies this audiobook might be vaguely accessible. Unfortunately, I found this audiobook impossible to follow. Is bombarding the reader with scientific jargon from the start and reading at breakneck speed really the best way to introduce someone to a subject? Did the narrator have a time limit imposed on him, or does he always talk that fast? I felt like a primary school child listening to a Masters lecture on fast-forward.
