What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The performance is what killed the book for me, Eric Holtzclaw voice is low and monotoned. It's difficult to pin point key information that he's reading because there's no differentials in his voice. At one point he says, "this is what should have learned from the past chapters", and I'm thinking to myself, "I haven't absorbed anything, every word sounds the same".
Any additional comments?
To Eric Holtzclaw, while your book has good information I would suggest having someone else read the material.
