    Professor Pierre Aronnax boards an American frigate commissioned to investigate a rash of attacks on international shipping by what is thought to be an amphibious monster. The supposed sea creature, which is actually the submarine Nautilus, sinks Aronnax's vessel and imprisons him along with his devoted servant Conseil and Ned Land, a temperamental harpooner.

    Kathleen says: "Gothic Sci Fi classic, narrated for kindergartners"
    "Terrible Narrator"
    Overall

    I listen to a lot of audiobooks and this is the worst narration that I have ever heard. While I eventually became accustomed to the narrator, he is still distracting. The Narrator also does not properly pronounce several words.

    As much as 95% of our decisions are made by the subconscious mind. As a result, the world's largest and most sophisticated companies are applying the latest advances in neuroscience to create brands, products, package designs, marketing campaigns, store environments, and much more, that are designed to appeal directly and powerfully to our brains.

    What disappointed you about The Buying Brain?

    This book has interesting concepts, but the author continually hammers on how great his research methodology is compared to standard customer surveys. Just when he starts talking about interesting ideas, he quickly reverts back to this refrain. This is like a puff piece whitepaper that tech firms post on their websites.
