For these instances, I wish a score of "N/A" was available for a review. I say this because I am in whole-hearted agreement with other reviewers who state that the reader is "unlistenable". He (Barry Whitener) is quite obviously a professional reader, a (type of) voice you have heard before in your elementary school audio tapes. It is very clear that he is simply reading "a book", not "Dr. Goleman's book on Emotional Intelligence" - a seemingly subtle difference whose results are anything but. I implore you to listen to the sample audio before deciding to purchase this audiobook. I feel horrible for Dr. Goleman in making this statement, but there is circumstantial evidence that he may feel similar - he (or his publisher) have not chosen to use this reader for any of Dr. Goleman's newer texts available on this website.
