probably better in print

I listen to books on x1.5 speed. This works for most books nicely. however I get the feeling that with chicken soup for the soul you need to take your time - reread - digest each story - and let it sink in.
don't get me wrong - I liked it and some stories were inspiring and uplifting.
however I do get the feeling it's probably one of those books best consumed with the eyes rather than the ears (especially on fast speed)

Out of date boring stories

My expectations were way higher then what was delivered. Not worth half the price!
Such a great way (for the authors) to make money.
