I'm totally happy with having purchased this audio book.
Rumi is/was new to me. Fascinating biography, fantastic poetry and cleary the author, who doubles as the presenter is both knowledgable and in love with his subject.
Other reviewers seem to have had problems withe delivery/speech pattern of the author. I can only put it down to his English accent, though for me his joy for the subject radiates on the recording and brings the emotionality of the subject to the fore.
am a big fan of Michel Thomas though recognize not so good for building vocabulary. This seems to combine the vocab of Pimsleur (but much quicker) and the grammar of Michel Thomas - a winner.
Two criticisms - think cheaper or get more stuff free buying directlty than through Audible, plus the second set of lessons 6-10 seems to have the transcript for the Spanish course not this Italian one.
A good "idea" but not at Viral stage, at least yet.
Examples are fairly shallow, limited to those which are primarily about e-buisness anyway, and the style of presentation fails to capture the excite that is likely to gnerate much word-of-mouth from listener/reader to anyone else.
