Lots of useful info.

To start I was given this by the author. I found this book to be very helpful as I really knew nothing about the subject but had been interested. Lots of useful information about getting started. The narrator was easy to understand and well paced. Would recommend to get started.

Terribly read, some mistakes, amateur

It is hard for me to imagine why someone who works for a company that offers services to produce Audiobooks would release an audiobook of his own which immediately gives the impression that the person speaking has difficulty reading. It was also surprising to hear verbal mistakes that should have been caught and edited out.

For all this book’s focus on meeting the standards of audible.com, I am surprised that Audible accepted and released this audiobook.

Great primer

The only thing that kind of bothered me was that he plugged his services on several occasions. If this were a free book, I'd understand but one mention is plenty.

The inspiration and nuts 'n bolts I needed!

What made the experience of listening to Recording Audiobooks: How to Get Started Recording Your Audiobook for Audible the most enjoyable?

I found Gutenberg Reloaded and George S when I was trying to figure out if I could even narrate my own book. This book gave me the inspiration to do it and answered all of my questions about how to do it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved the info on setting up the site. However, what I realized I needed, even more, were some of the tips on how to do the narration, like warming up my voice, and using lip balm ;-)

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed hearing all the details on set up. I had already watched George's YouTube video that showed his setup, so I could follow along in my mind.

What did you learn from Recording Audiobooks: How to Get Started Recording Your Audiobook for Audible that you would use in your daily life?

That I CAN do this!

Any additional comments?

George is a real person...who responds to comments and emails. He answered additional questions I had. In fact, he first sent me the e-book version of this...but I promptly paid for the audio version, because, I know that's how I needed to quickly digest this info. Thanks, George! You have a raving fan for life!

Good Beginners Guide but..

Most of the information contained in this audiobook is readily available just by doing a Google search however the narrator did present the material in order and in a way that is easy to digest.
