Haven't even finished it yet. Narration is horrible and very distracting, it genuinely sounds like a text-to-speech function is performing. I'm horrified that this made it through a publisher, is there no quality assurance?

Very insightful and informative. While listening to this book I had multiple moments of clarity on one of my current projects, several "Ah Ha!" moments, and overall came away feeling more confident in my work. I take away several new tricks to try and will surely revisit the book in the future as well.
