I love almost anything post-apocalyptic, zombie, scifi, ect. Always looking for some new earhole entertainment!
I couldn't even finish this book. The narration was very boring. This shouldn't have even been an audiobook to begin with. The author is telling you what something is but doesn't give a description. For example, "this is what a whole note looks like" and then no description follows. This should have been made into a video, which still would have been boring.

This was an audio I was intrigued to listen and find out how one can teach piano without an actual book. I am a novice when it comes to piano, but do know a few basic items in regards to music so I wanted to use this as a comparison tool.
This audio would be best to listen in front of the piano in order to practice alongside the tutorial.
As an audio standalone to learn piano, it was a bit confusing and lacking in certain details. The main focus in one of the chapters is learning the music staff and notes. The visual description of the notes and staff alignment were not translated easily through audio, so if you do not know what a quarter note or a whole note looks like then the chapter will not make sense. Many times the narrator references what certain items look like "here" so it is obviously described visually in the book.
The narrator has a nice tonal voice and was energetic with the content. There were a few times where he spoke quickly. More pauses between sentences would have been easier to help process the technical information before going onto the next lesson.
This audio was helpful for me in learning acronyms for the notes, chords and gave good examples of starter songs to practice scales. This audio is one that will be good to listen to again in sections while practicing and is short enough to listen all the way through. I would suggest getting the book or if there are downloadable companion sheets to help with referencing, the audio would be a more complete tool for getting started in learning how to play.
