    "Interesting facts, but the narrator's lacking"
    What didn’t you like about Nick Hahn’s performance?

    His pronunciation of scientific words should have been researched! It's a little jarring to hear words pronounced as they are spelled as opposed to how they should be said! I have a bit more of a science background than average, and the mispronunciations spread misunderstanding and the belief that science is hard! (It's not)


    Any additional comments?

    It's a fun book.

    "ANOTHER book ruined by bad narration"

    I will never again buy an audiobook produced by Audible. This is the second one I've purchased with a distractingly terrible narrator. His frequent mispronunciations, awkward cadence, and obvious lack of interest in the material made it unlistenable. This did not sound like a professionally produced audiobook. I will be requesting a credit refund (again).
