No. I expected this to be a book for a well-educated lay reader. But a lay reader could not hope to understand the content, especially in an audio format.
This was ill-suited for an audiobook. There is much too much math here to listen to.
The performance was workmanlike. Not much good or bad to say about it.
Frustration. It's very tedious to listen to long equations being read out loud. And there are a lot of long equations in this book.
The narrative was stripped of the stories that make it fascinating and we were left with the math. A person who can understand this level of math likely already knows it. For the rest of us, there will be few who can hold these new quantitative concepts in their heads as the equations are read out loud. If you think you can and somehow you've managed to get this far in life without already knowing the book's content, then go for it. For the rest, there are many books that are much better with theory and anecdote out there. I cannot recommend this book in the audio format.
