    "Difficult to listen to"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Vince Reynolds again?

    Perhaps, as long as it has a different narrator.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The inflection of the reader's voice is over the top and almost hypnotic. You are shaken from this hypnosis by his odd pronunciation of words like "innovative" which have the same effect as fingernails on a chalkboard. I am taking note of this performer's name and will not be listening to anything else he narrates.

    "Straight forward information"

    A quick read that provides the listener with a general overview of basic terminology and concepts of big data. I'm not in the tech industry so a lot of the language went over my head but it was simple enough that I was able to better understand ways to capture and use data. Although the reader was a bit monotonous and there wasn't much expression in the examples, it was Overall a good read with examples for a beginner to big data.

    "Boring and whistling"

    Still don't know about big data because I was bored and couldn't focus. High pitched whistling.

    "Whistler"

    The reader whistles. This made it almost impossible to listen to at high speeds. Had to drop to 1.5x from 3x.
