This book sounds like it was an incomplete draft copy, produced by amateurs. There are multiple volume changes, microphone changes, missing information, retakes, even chapters that sound like they were recorded on a cell phone in the front seat of a car. I wouldn't be so critical, but this book even has a section where the narrator paused, and then said "...........it's that easy" but never gave the information for the example! There is a silent part about an hour in where it looks like the author had intended to fill in the specifics later, and completely forgot! The app-specific info is far too complicated for an audiobook, ie... "goto file, the click the....". Great for a workbook, not an audio book. There was some info that may be useful to anyone building an iPhone game, but the best information I got from this book about building my app was a list of contract app builders!!! OVERALL, 3 / 10
This was too specific for an audio book. Impossible to follow.
The sections that were professionally narrated were well done, but there were Many sections of this program that seemed to be haphazardly added after the professional recording was completed. They were a different voice and the recording quality was a drastically lesser quality.
There was far too much software-specific information to follow along in as audiobook without that piece of software open in front of the listener.
As someone who is excited about designing, building, marketing, and distributing a new app, this recording left me very disappointed.
Say something about yourself!
For anyone who is interested in other cultures... or interacts with other cultures... or wonders why other cultures do what they do.... this book is for you. I've been interacting with French culture for over 30 years and I STILL learned things that explained reactions that I never understood before.
If that's not enough, it reinforced my intuitive understanding of American culture and explained aspects of our culture in ways I'd never thought of before.
