Being relatively familiar with this authors work, it seemed a safe bet that this book would be at least a moderately interesting companion on a long car ride and daily commutes. I found the book to be exasperatingly sluggish, repetitious and an unrewarding waste of 15 hours. Replace the useless similes and repeated phrasing, apparently intended for emphasis, with a restraint and brevity and it would be somewhat tolerable. Duma Key is much more interesting in subject matter with more engaging characters and events.
This is tough content to convey / present audibly and the narrator author does a reasonable job. There are stretches where so much information is being presented that one should be seated at a desk and taking notes. The PDF attachments help.
In general, this is an area that audible books could stand to improve. Why not include as part of the audio file supporting images and text that could be linked in the 'now playing' window in the Audible player? Devices could easily manage a few more megs of information.
Anyone who considers themselves to be unorganized or frequently overwhelmed by tasks.
