    "Why Can't Our Best Schools Train a Fluent Narrator"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have tried to listen to this book because the topic, research and assertions really interest me. However, the robotic narration makes it very difficult to tolerate.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Costanzo?

    L.J. Ganser, who narrated Class Warfare did a much better job.
