I would recommend this book to any students who may be studying Hamlet, both for the insight into how it is performed and the integrated commentary which fills in an enormous amount of background detail without slowing down the story too much.
The most outstanding feature was the research and insight that went into the commentary. This is not a cheap cash in on a famous title.
The book is very dense and may give you a bit of indigestion if listened to quickly. That said, I was in a hurry and used the 2x speed on the iPhone and was still able to follow it well.
An important note: if you just want to listen to the dramatized reading of the play, just play Part 2. It doesn't have any commentary.
This book had some interesting insights into scientific discovery. Unfortunately, the whole thing seemed to be from the Intelligent Design perspective. I would have liked to hear some scientists and theologians talk about science and religion who were from the mainstream.
