This book sounds like the author may have been given a minimum page requirement and she used both rambling and repeating to hit that goal. The monotone narration helps make sure that the listener is tuned out or dazed by the time a salient point is covered. On top of these points there is the glaring mispronunciation of so many words throughout the reading...and I use the word reading here because it really sounds like she was reading one. word. at. a. time. a very unfamiliar text. Pretty bad, definitely wish I could have my credit back that I spent on this one.
The information in the book may be decent but it is far overshadowed by the reading. Howard Rypp seems to be unfamiliar with the words and the functions of punctuation in certain parts of this book. The first few times I though that it was odd that it made it through editing, eventually it was so distracting that the content faded in the background as the speaking errors were highlighted over and over again. Some of these are minor mis-pronunciations that should have been edited out, others are so egregious that it makes me wonder if the audio was edited at all.
Such poor reading that it sounded at times as if he was unfamiliar with the English language.
