Publisher's Summary

A practical guide to letting go of the character defects that get in the way of true and joyful recovery.

Resentment. Fear. Self-pity. Intolerance. Anger. As Bill P. explains, these are the "rocks" that can sink recovery - or at the least, block further progress. Based on the principles behind "Steps Six and Seven", Drop the Rock combines personal stories, practical advice, and powerful insights to help listeners move forward in recovery. The second edition features additional stories and a reference section.

Poor Recording

As a book, Drop the Rock is awesome...so incredibly helpful.
But this recording is choppy....tail end of sentences are clipped....and hence it is incredibly distracting from the book's message.
Yes, I tried it on multiple devices. It's in the recording. Too bad... The written version of the book is worth the time!

Irregular

The recording does not naturally flow. It's choppy and sporadic, pausing in the middle of a sentence.

Don’t Skip a Step

A bit of irony. Or maybe a joke I couldn’t get to.
What’s going on with Chapter 10?
The audio skips and skips; making it impossible to follow along.
The first 9 chapters were great.
The constant skipping in the 10th ruined the performance;(
It’s not like I was jogging with my Walkman.
I hope this error can be corrected for future downloads.
Best of luck!

Book skips multiple words making it difficult.

Can't completely understand the book because the recording is glitching and shipping multiple words throughout. May have to return this copy and find another one.

The recording is cut off

I love this book but this audible version has been edited so a lot of the words are cut short and it’s hard to listen to

Skips

The message and stories were great. I found the book itself to be very helpful. The recording, however, is awful. It skips the tail end of sentences and can be very distracting. I found myself so irritated at times that I had to stop listening.

terrible narration

okay in the beginning, by chapter 4 it sounds like the narrator recorded bullet points and is basically talking over the end of each one to start the next. Making it impossibleto experience any depth, emotion or meaning. I stopped reading/listening after turning to many reviews saying the recording gets worse, chapter 8 being mentioned repeatedly. done

Parts missing

part way through the book the last couple of words were missing from the end of sentences. Not good
