    "Please Drop Editorials & Soap Opera Articles"

    I've had this subscription for several months now and generally enjoy it. The one-hour time limit is just right for me to get it all in by the time I park my car at work. I'm most interested in business/finance news, "Yesterdays Markets", "Heard on the Street" and interviews with market authorities and experts. Please drop the editorials and the multiple long articles on the latest Wall Street soap opera, e.g., AIG, Morgan Stanley. I find the Mosbacher (sp?) technology articles informative, but boy does he bias towards Apple.

    "Audio version is well done"

    Would rate this 3.5 if I could.
    I read a story or two from the print version fairly frequently, but rarely find time to read more, although I'm always impressed with the articles when I read them, so I looked forward to the audio version. The audio version is well done as far as picking a variety of stories to read and the narrators are pleasing to the ears. It is chaptered so that you can fast forward through stories that you don't want to listen to. Having someone else pick the stories (rather than me reading what I want) made it more evident that the paper leans to the right just a bit. I know, all publications are politically motivated in some way and many are much more obvious about it than the Journal, but it is a bit annoying sometimes. Nevertheless, I'm sticking with the Journal because it is a high quality publication in general.

    "Great most of the time"

    I've been mostly pleased with my first month with the Journal. The weekend edition is by far the best part of the subscription in that it is a bit more light hearted and entertaining to listen to while doing something else on the weekends. :)

    My only real complaint to add to the other great reviews: the front page/ lead story tends to be long winded and often repetitive in its information towards the end. I often find my self skipping the last sections of the story to move on to more substantive news. I wish that these lead articles could be slightly abbreviated and some additional content from the editorial page or other news could be added in its place.

    "Very good listen, but focus could improve"

    I have listened to the WSJ daily read and then read the actual journal nearly every day for over 6 months. I love the audio, which I listed to on my way to work, but I wish that they would drop the editorial section and expand the main articles. The editorial section tends to be very political and even if you generally agree with the writers, they get annoying with their unabashed whining about "left wing" this and "liberal agenda" that....then again, this only accounts for about 20% of the program, so I would recommend it overall.

    "Not bad"

    Could do without the highly biased editorials that take political views that WSJ is not really qualified to comment on. The rest of the news is quite useful, giving information on lots of corporate activities. I would switch to IBD (Investors Business Daily) if Audible offerred it.

    "Execelent"

    Until subscribing to the audible version of the WSJ I was not a WSJ reader. I have been missing a great paper. I always thought the Journal had only financial news, I was very wrong. The WSJ covers many other topics such as politics, current events, and world news. The depth and insight with which they cover most topics far exceeds most other daily newspapers I have read.

    I particularly enjoy the service because I can download the content each day and listen at work.

    "WSJ Doesn't Deliver"

    I am a fan of the WSJ because it has something of interest to anyone who picks up the paper. Just a quick review of the front page will always bring out a few interesting articles I would like to read. Sometimes I will read all of the articles and sometimes I will enjoy just reading a portion of the article. Now translate that experience to an audible version.

    Transferring the experience to an audible version you get a reader who is dangerous to listen to while driving because it makes me fall asleep at the wheel. They also have articles that just drone on and on. It became a marathon to listen to the whole subscription. My vote is the WSJ newspaper yes, WSJ Audible version no.

    "Right Up My Alley"

    Having listened to 'The WSJ Morning Read' for a month, I found that it has much of what I am interested in knowing from that paper. It is a fantastic service, and the news reader is very good at what he does. I intend to keep renewing as long as it is this relevent to my needs, and hope that it will be for a long time to come.

    "Bye! Bye! Radio News."

    I have been subscribing to the WSJ for 5 months now.
    It has taken the place of the radio during my daily commute.

    Strong points include:
    1) The business news that it emphasizes is a welcome departure from the negatively focused news (killing, robbing, etc) that dominates todays radio and TV news programs.
    2) They select articles and read the whole thing. I appreciate the in depth coverage of topics. It is much better than the cursory 1 to 2 minute summaries so often used by other news broadcasters.
    3) The weekend wine article is fun and guides me in my purchse of my wine for the coming week.

    Weak points include:
    1) The editorials tend to be extremely "conservative". This is to be expected in a business oriented newspaper.

    "Agree with others - need a no-nonsense briefing"

    Many reviewers have touched on these points--I'd like to add my vote (which is hopefully audible): Start by reading the entire "What's News" leads. Follow with hard news articles (M&A.. earnings surprises.. Spitzer) from each section that are likely to affect the markets that same day. Then, once the listener is informed and ready for work, add the editorials, human interest, etc. Today's 12-minute lead story (read in its excruciating entirety) was about how capitalism in China is affecting tradional filial piety. Interesting, but does that prepare me for Wednesday, April 13? An alternative solution is to distribute each story or section as a separate file so I can "flip through".

    Finally, please tell the reader that he doesn't have to say "Carlos SLEEEM Helu." "Carlos Slim" is just fine. I was laughing so hard I almost walked into traffic.
