    "Beware of Sound Quality Issues"
    What would have made Instant Genius, The Cheat Sheets of Culture better?

    The audio quality was surprisingly bad, even though I downloaded it with the same settings as my other recordings. It had nothing to do with the narrator; just hard to hear, overall.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ken Boynton’s performances?

    Yes.


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

    Interesting, informative and perfectly "digestible" in short sittings - enjoyable way to spend 45 minutes or so. I just wish I'd been able to hear better!


    Any additional comments?

    Could probably do without the little "dramatized" dialogues at the beginning ("why you need to read this" section where people argue historical facts). Just a waste of time, blurry sound quality and very artificially scripted - an eye-roll moment.
