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.

The narrator is the worst!

The book itself, so far(I'm 6 hours in), is very informative. I don't think I would have gotten through it in paper form, as it is very technical.

The narration, however, is horrible, and making it increasinglydifficult to get through. I have to give credit to the narrator; this is a 40 hour book. But I have never listened to an audio book that was so poorly edited. The audio book is riddled with gaps, repeating, even throat clearing, gasping for breath, and gibberish noises by the narrator. In addition, trying to follow along is difficult, because the narrator mispronounces soooo many words. It is extremely frustrating.

How do you access the content he references to?

Throughout the book he says you can get the notes/videos/ illustrations Ect. If you go to boundless book.com/18? Or I think that is what he says. But the books website requires the receipt number of the book you purchased in order to access the extra content. How do you access it if you purchased the audio book through audible????
Thank you

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 blatently incorrect pronunciations. For example "baggles" instead of bagels.

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

l feel publisher owes me at least a kindle copy of the book so I can verify what the author intended.

Again I loved the book and have listened to it more than once. But, still wonder how so many prounciations ended up in a published work.

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.

Narrator is horrible

I love the content of this book and I love Ben Greenfield’s work, but I can’t tell you how terrible this narrator is. He miss pronounces so many important medical words, and supplement words it’s irritating to listen to. Audible should have had been read his own book If he was willing to do it. Or at least have someone who knew the words so they didn’t mess them up so bad. I’m sorry narrator, you should’ve done your medical research and learned how to say those words!

biohacker's bible

single most impactful health book and I've read quite a few. Really dwarves Genius Life which is good info but is very basic level and is missing a lot to be honest. have only implemented a fraction (earthing, oil pulling, gravity boots, trampoline, dozens more..) of what's contained yet have experienced a personal evolution catapult or portal even. pronunciations absolutely fine could not imagine not listening to this comprehensive monstrosity. if you've read many others like me this will likely reintroduce many key concepts and familiar names but will also introduce many interesting new ideas, habits, practices to explore
