Review of lean procurement

I found that the content of this audiobook was deminished and overshadowed by the absolute shocking narration by the narrator. I found my mind wondering far away due to the absurd tone used by the narrator.

Obvious a terrible audio

This book is a joke. Content is obvious and the audio is awful. Should be taken down.

Audio is horrible!

Sounds like the narrator did his job in the restroom.

I couldn't finish the first chapter.

I hope this is not how Audible is normally.

For $15/mo, I have higher expectations. Sounds like James Earl Jones reading on the toilet. I have finished 407 audio books for free from my public library. My library has no more books to offer for me. I have exhausted the catalog. I need more supply chain, but if this is all there is, then I'm writing my own.

Did head this in the bathroom?

Couldn't get past the first 30 minutes. The reader sounds as if he is in a large public bathroom. The echo is significantly distracting to the material.

Is the reader in a tank?

What would have made Lean Procurement and Supply Chain Management better?

One of the worst. The reader sounds like he is in a tank. In fact, it sounds like a computer voice reading the book and stating the obvious.

Has Lean Procurement and Supply Chain Management turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes

What didn’t you like about Louis Winfield Bailey’s performance?

Stating the obvious (content) and the reader's voice (is it a computer)?

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lean Procurement and Supply Chain Management?

All of them.
