    "Computer voice narration"
    What would have made Influencing Up better?

    Human narrator


    What was most disappointing about Allan R Cohen and David L. Bradford ’s story?

    Cannot believe this is a human narrator. Halting, unnatural intonation -- cannot tell what is being communicated because the pauses and flow are DESTROYED by the narrator. Makes this very hard to understand, even with a lot of focus.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Phillip Dubois?

    Virtually anyone.

    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately, I have yet to make it through the first chapter or two. This topic is extremely interesting to me, but I found the narrator speaking with such an odd, distracting cadence at times, and in such a dry voice (think Ben Stein in a Clear Eyes commercial, but even less entertaining and conversational) that I haven't been able to get far in this book. I'm really bummed since I do so want to learn more about this topic! I will keep trying, but for now, my rating is pretty low here....
