Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The book had some terrific information and I may still order it in hard copy. However, the author unfortunately chose to narrate this book himself. Sometimes that works, in this case, it is a complete misstep. The author speaks in a barely varied cadence, that after a while, begins to sound almost monotone. Unbearable to think of listening to the entire book.

Mr. Tracy, please do not narrate your own books, or consider some voice coaching to add excitement if you choose to go this path for your next book.

I was frustrated I used my free credits on a book I ended up deleting after only about an hour.

How could the performance have been better?

Someone else besides the author narrating, or the author needs voice coaching.
