another mistake

Bought it with subscription credit on the phone, obviously by mistake.
You can get the same idea about the book by reading abstract and/or chapter index.

Why is this book necessary?

Do you think we didn’t get the point? Is this for some who don’t read or listen?

Too short and summarized nothing

I listen to a lot of book summaries because they sometimes entice me to read the whole book, but in many cases a well done summary keeps me from having to read the book at all. A good summary removes the filler by stating the a finding then going into a several sentence explanation for why that conclusion was reached. I rated this book so low because it is a quick 10 minute list of findings without any sort of context or explanation as to why. As another reviewer said, this is basically just a reading of the chapter headings. The guy reading it had a nice voice though.

Mistake

What would have made Analysis of Esther Perel's Mating in Captivity better?

Be warned, I bought this thinking it was Esther Perel's actual book. It goes for 8 minutes and is hardly worth the time downloading.
