    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd recommend PLATFORM, but not in audiobook form. So much of the content would be better as reference. (ex. If I want to read about one specific related to maintaining a blog, I'd look it up in the glossary.) As an audiobook, it's kind of a mess. Hyatt's a more than credible source and a quality author, but he should have hired someone else to do the voice-over. He sounds like a nice guy, but his voice gets irritating after a while and makes the production feel cheap. The info contained in the book is far from cheap, so it's unfortunate. This is the case of a great writer/director also needing to act in his own movie, and the movie suffering for it...so to speak.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different Voice-Over Talent, content chapters broken up by specific names for sections


    Who do you think would benefit most from listening to Platform?

    Anyone looking to establish a web presence and expand their brand.


    Any additional comments?

    Re-record this with Dylan Baker's voice (see: "Steve Jobs" audiobook) and break up the content even more with specific names for sections, include a .pdf glossary, and this would be excellent. Otherwise, it's a mostly-lazy audio translation of an otherwise good book.
