worst audio book i have heard

This was the worst audio book I have heard. I have read several other books by Daniel Goleman and I appreciated the content of this book, the stilted performance mixed with bad editing made it almost impossible to understand the thought process of the book. I would recommend this title but I would suggest reading it and not listening to it.
