Industrial/Organizational Psychology Audiobook

Industrial/Organizational Psychology: History, Research, & Theory

One may view industrial/organizational psychology as the merger of industry, organization, and its relation to psychology. Industrial relates to industry, referencing, “the economic activity concerned with the processing of raw materials and manufacture of goods in factories.” The organization is “an organized body of people with a particular purpose, especially a business, society, or association.” Psychology represents the scientific study of behavior and mind. Industrial/organizational psychology is the merger of these three entities into a single scientific discipline.

    "worse than horrible"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The narration was really poor. The recording quality was even more poor.


    What could Steven G. Carley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Found someone else to narrate


    What didn’t you like about Steven G. Carley’s performance?

    everything!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The content is interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    Why would an author do this to his own book???

    Story
    "Baroque sentances and little content"

    This book was un-listenable to, because of two reasons:
    1. The writer was modeling Kant -- overly complicated sentances and fluffy structure mask a lack of content per pge/minute
    2. The narration had been processed to enlongate the vowels sounds (perhaps to make it more "comprehensible"?), which rendered it hard to listen to in 1x, 1.5x or 2x speed, and incomprehensible in 3x (because the consonants were hard to make out then). Having listened to books happily in all of those speeds, I am puzzled by what they did to the audio stream to give it that character.
