I'd recommend the physical book but not the audio version. The narrator's portrayal of the characters came across as "whiny". I like the story but not the reading.
For a "hard-nosed detective" the portrayal of Spade sounds like a combination of Lt. Frank Drebin (Police Squad / Naked Gun) and the wisecracks of Maxwell Smart (Get Smart). Plus the commercials are downright annoying. Save your money.
It's not terrible, but nothing great. It's nothing but a highlight reel of season 5. So if you've never seen the show, you won't know what this book is all about.
Audio sounds like a computerized voice. Some instances the dialog sounds like the characters are in a fish tank. Loved the book, but stay away from this one.
Great stories, but most of the program is devoted to telling everyone how great Petri wine is. It'd probably be much better if the commercials were edited out.
The program sounded like part chess book (minus the notation) and part business strategy guide, but not really sticking with either.
While there are loads of parallels between business and a chess game, this program leaves you with more questions than answers.
