Not a very deep analysis of the subject...

The detail you’d think would be required for an effective analysis is clearly lacking in this book. There is no in-depth coverage of the subject matter. The author’s understanding of the subject is pretty shallow...I’m surprised that he didn’t talk to therapists or other medical professionals to provide the reader with more detail on the various manifestations of the illness. There’s barely enough for the loved ones to make a credible diagnosis of the illness, much less anything useful to the AvPD sufferer to get any insight into the problems and symptoms they endure.

Equally bad was the narration...the book was read way too fast. It was as if the narrator was trying to read the entire book in under an hour on a bet.

Narrator Craig Sweat robotic inconsistency reading

The narrator reading is robotic/disconnected from what he is reading. The narrator reading is inconsistent. He rushes through one word or two then slow down in the same sentence. Sometimes he is reading at the same pace through few sentences then read one word too fast to comprehend of what the meaning of the sentence is. It throws you off the line of the meaning of what he is reading. The reading is so bad that I have to stop listening. The reading isn’t smooth and warm. It is disconnected, cold and inconsistent.
Sorry for the bad review.
Please get someone else to read this book.

The Ultimate Guide? More Like a Podcast Episode

The second chapter was just a word-for-word repeat of the first chapter. The narrator talked too fast. A very, very brief intro for anyone totally unfamiliar with this, and similar, personality disorders.

a torture to listen

What could Clayton Geoffreys have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It's like a narrated wikipedia article. So superficial and short. Narration was awful too.

How could the performance have been better?

He speaks too fast that I could not understand anything. Terrible terrible narration.

Any additional comments?

I cannot believe I wasted my money on this. STAY AWAY.

Superficial look at a big topic, poorly narrated.

Basic information and facts are here, but nothing which will come as news to anybody reading the book as a sufferer of this disorder, or indeed having any cursory knowledge of it. On the whole this is little more than a quick high-level introduction. Content aside, the narration is hard to take, it is read in a hurried manner with little care. I listened at 0.75x speed to make it passable. The book is also very short.
