    "Quality counts"
    What made the experience of listening to Ghost Hunting Guide the most enjoyable?

    Walker has a whiskey soaked baritone that works well with the material. Russell adds science to a an otherwise superstitious arena.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Comingling the science of quality audits with supernatural investigation makes for an intersesting experience.


    Which character – as performed by Chase Walker – was your favorite?

    As a narrator, Walker turns the intricacies of quality management into enjoyable listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Dr. Russell has introduced a systemic approach to a chaotic field. Utilizing the tools of quality auditing, common sense and logic to investigate the paranormal is a novel approach to an increasingly popular pursuit of entertainment. Dr. Russell's theories and practices could be easily applied to any sort of investigative endeavor.

    "Excellent outline for beginners."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    There are those that just want to experience a ghost others want to hunt them. Well a good ghost hunt take planning unless you are into baiting them to appear and that can be dangerous even for the most experience ghost hunter.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    All good books need a voice that will bring you into the moment. Chase does it with ease and keeps you there.

    Story
    "Project Management in Ghost Hunting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, approached as a basic fun scientific approach to ghost hunting. Has examples of how to write a ghost hunt Charter (the plan.) How to schedule the hunt (Gantt Chart) and how to utilize a Risk Matrix. Finally recycling the knowledge so the same mistakes don't repeat themselves in the Lessons Learned/Post Mortem. Its kind of a check-yourself, before you wreck-yourself approach.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No character


    What about Chase Walker’s performance did you like?

    If you like Sam Elliot's type of vocals then this is for you. I thought is was perfect for the material.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    How to plan a ghost hunt. The front-end loading of the hunt.


    Any additional comments?

    well done

    Story
    "lacking any real information"

    The author doesn't give any real infromation about ghost hunting, he talks a lot about how to organize a good group of people to go ghost hunting, but then doesn't say a think about the actual ghost hunt and what should go on in one. I know the book is short, but seriously? Their is no substance what so ever. The narration was good, but that's the only thing. Don't waste your time/money.

    Story
    "This Book Put Me into an Audio Coma"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is like listening to some old geezer at a bar who's finally crossed the line into "one too many" and it's totally boring.


    What could Dean Russell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Had the thought to write this book. Killed that thought and written a totally other book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Chase Walker’s performances?

    No.
