    Story
    "Expeirience spolied by poor narration"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Book has good content but delivered very poorly. The narration is lifeless and thus very hard to follow. In the case of audio books, the narrator is as important as the content.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Leave the story as is but change the narrator


    Would you be willing to try another one of Marcia Yudkin’s performances?

    No


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from No-Hype Copywriting?

    Not applicable


    Any additional comments?

    The book should be read by someone else.
