Very difficult book for an audiobook. Hard to follow. The reader went very fast. There is no time to absorb the ideas-- particularly the examples. You can't easily page back and relisten to key parts. The ideas were not that dense; but they were hard to follow.
I also thought the book was heavier on technical linguistics and less on insights into human nature than I was expecting. At least listening to it during a commute, it came out very disjointed and without a clear theme.
If you are still interested, I'd recommend using old technology and actually reading it-- but only if you are really into linguistics. There are some interesting concepts here but no great insights into human nature.
