Would you consider the audio edition of Stop Walking on Eggshells to be better than the print version?

Take care the first time you listen!
It is very captivating to have your experiences validated and be given skills to limit those experiences.
Driving is not the time to be staring at your audio player saying 'that is so true'.
3 months latter I'm still as excited as when I first listened to this Audio-Book.

If you are new to this book Part 1 will Captivate you (as it did me a few years ago).
If you've read the 1st Edition, Part 2 will bowl you over.

What other book might you compare Stop Walking on Eggshells to and why?

A few times in your life you read a book that's like an epiphany. This is one of them.
(Part 1 of the 1st Ed also did this to me)

Which scene was your favorite?

Part 2 Lean the skills to live your life. Boundaries aren't just for BPD's but relevant when dealing with any difficult person.

Any additional comments?

Part 2 of this 2d Edition is so relevant to everyday life, not just dealing with BPD sufferers. If you read the First Edition, you are in for a treat. So much more information and it's so relevant to today, tomorrow and the future.
I purchased it to brush up & found Part 2 of the second Edition so good I bought paper backs for some friends. A must read (listen).

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Keeping to the advertised subject or making disclosures commensurate with the content. In my view this is NOT an academic work.

Has The Commented Bible: Book 28 - Hosea turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. The genre is fine the book doesn't belong here and should be moved.
All monies need to be refunded.
Disclosure is missing making this deceptive and I feel scammed. Let's be serious, if I subscribe direct to Watchtower I realise what I'm buying.
This wasn't advertised as a Kingdom Hall Publication. (see objectivity comment below).

Would you be willing to try another one of Jerome Cameron Goodwin’s performances?

Absolutely not.
This advertises as being "designed to be a simple and effective means for anyone who is wanting to know accurately what the Bible teaches to learn it." But 'accuracy' is used in a subjective manner.
Beside the deceptive content the narration is atrocious. I have a speech program that is more fluid.

What character would you cut from The Commented Bible: Book 28 - Hosea?

The Author, The Orator, The title, The Description & The Recording ... yep! pretty much everything.

Any additional comments?

I'm so disappointed Audible has allowed this to enter as a serious academic work.

I expect an work espousing the viewpoint of the Anglican Church to disclose it's purpose,
I expect the same from our fiends from the Kingdom Hall.

Check my listening history. I have listened to many viewpoints Jewish, Islamic, Calvinistic, Pentecostal, Catholic, Agnostic/Atheistic, etc.
I'm not offended by the content, I'm deeply unset about the deception.
