Narrator unprofessional

Narrator stumbles and drops an F bomb in chapter 8 around 24:05. This is very unprofessional and should not have been tolerated or published. Additionally, there are many mispronunciations and the narrator seems rushed and uninterested in the content. I will be very hesitant about listening to any other titles by this narrator, Joseph Kent.

Very Insightful

Amazing research created this book. I love the way historic events coincide and eventuate in logical explanations for several phenomena.
I'm gonna reread with a bible and a map at hand.

good story bad reader

The reader of this book stumbled a total of 8 times and on the fifth time he actually drops the F bomb!? highly unprofessional and even more so for the editor who left the stumbles in the audio book! The grade of the book itself is of high value with all of the treasured information poured in to this masterpiece however the grade of this book has to be reduced because of its poor performer and poor editor. still I would, despite the flubs, highly recommend this book if you don't have the time to actually buy the hard copy.
