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. More simply put, industrial/organizational psychology is the study of the workplace and the interactions among the organization, the goal of industrial/organizational psychology being to contribute to this success among individual and organization.

The author repeatedly uses an awkward sentence structure ("Making it difficult to listen to is the sentence structure; increasing the difficulty is the inflection.") Also, the reader uses a repeated rising inflection, alternating with a semi-monotonous high inflection. The makes it hard to follow the flow of concepts, as the reading lacks the normal conclusion indicators of changed inflection.
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.
The narration was really poor. The recording quality was even more poor.
Found someone else to narrate
The content is interesting.
Why would an author do this to his own book???
The tone of the author was very monotone.
Not if he is the reader
