This is not audible material

What would have made Bullets With Bite better?

If it were not sold as an audiobook. The author has some valuable suggestions for capturing people's attention. But, it is not suitable for an audio book. Unless, you're taking notes while you listen. But, if that were the case, you'd probably rather go ahead and get a written version. There's too much ground covered, it's too "point 1", "point 2", "point 3", for a very long list of points. Eventually, the suggestions she makes seem to merge into each other. I DID get ideas that will be helpful. But, this was not the best way to get them.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She reads fine. The problem is not the quality of reading.
