great book. sketchy pronunciations at best

A great book well organized perfect amount of detail and other resources. The only problem with listening to the book was the sketchy pronunciations and incorrect Pronunciations.

Someone should have "proof read" the recording for these obvious and innumerable flaws of pronunciation. Aside from that the narrator did a fine job.

Great material, poor narration

The material is very good and well laid out. On the other hand, the narration is horrible. Mono-tonous /hypnotic voice and many mistakes in pronunciation of medical terms. For a book like this the narrator should have been provided a list of terms that needed to be pronounced correctly. I can accept a few mispronunciations but they are all the way through the book; has become a distraction from the material. Agree with others that it would be better if Ben Greenfield read it. I will likely return it and purchase the hard copy as a reference book.

Distracted by terrible mispronounciation

Should have looked for a Reader who has some medical background or training. So far, the info is good but when so much of it isn’t articulated correctly, it’s super distracting. Can’t even say ‘glial’ cells or ‘epinephrine’ correctly.
Which also leads to the information sounding less credible. The words should be enunciated correctly else the material fall flat.
Sorry to the reader. You have a beautiful voice. Should have probably listened to how to pronounce all these medical/biology/physiology terms in advance.
Makes for a poor listening experience.
