I recommend this narrator over the narrator for the "Audible only" version of this book.

This book has many versions: Original publication, Original text but published much later, summary, etc. I recommend this version, as I believe it is closer to the original text and intent. Also, the narrator is much better.
A similar version of the text is narrated by a many monotone/ computer sounding vice, that makes this material difficult to parse and comprehend.

Narrator was great.

There is 1 chapter that was recorded with an echo setting, hence it is difficult to understand, and should be re-recorded. However as it lasts only a few minutes of the something like 45+ hour recording, so it's hardly a major complaint. Know that it is a one-off.

An actual issue, though is the chapter titles themselves. The listed titles do not correlate to the actual chapter titles. So it is difficult to cross reference!
Honestly three is no viable excuse for Audible to Not fix this! Indeed the listed "titles" are plain wrong.

That said, the book, content, narration voice, and narration quality is great. And the price is excellent.
I do recommend this particular title.
