the drawn out P's, S's, and T's are too much

did not appreciate the drawn out P's, S's, B's and T's and It's throughout the entire narration.

Could be better

Still find the need to have a hard copy of this book. Makes back and forth references to different sections. Downloadable PDF s would be useful.

poor

very hard to listen to due to constant reference to other pages, or footnotes, you need to be reading at the same time
