A blank stare

Very disappointed. A fascinating subject is made into Styrofoam. Academic language and format is sedative.

About as expected for a textbook

I knew that listening to an audiobook version of a textbook would be a bit stilted and drawn-out. However, midway through chapter 12, it seems that the narrator briefly starts over from the beginning. This happens with roughly 6 hrs and 30 min remaining. Chapter 13 seems intact so far though.

The clue is in the title. Introductory.

This is very much an introductory book. It covers a great deal of topics but explores them in little depth. It may be useful in written form as a starting point for further research. As an audiobook I can't see it having a lot of usefulness, unless you fancied pausing every couple of minutes to take note of a referenced piece of interesting research. Think of it more as a roadmap than an explanatory guide. The problem is, when someone tells you directions, you might tend to forget them. Finally, my greatest issue with Audible (not just this title) is the lack of meaningful chapter listings/titles. it is very frustrating not knowing what the contents of a book are. If this information can't be embedded into the app, then at a minimum, it should be provided as an accompanying PDF for every audiobook.
