Very good, just not what I expected

It was very detailed and very complete. However, I thought it would be less about Buddha and more about how to do it... Learn it step by step.

Good content Strange Narrator

I really tried to listen to this book but the narrator did me in as so distracting. The content was good but probably best to purchase the paper book and read it that way. I am returning this one.

Content is excellent, recording is flawed.

I’m trying to stick with the audio book. I read the book 18 years ago and wanted to reread/listen to it. It’s an excellent introduction to mediation.

The recording—ooftah, it’s awful. It sounds like computer created speech. The editing is awkward, volume is inconsistent, consonants get cut off, skips like like a record! The reader mispronounces common words and essential terms.

Ex: Tibetan is pronounced robotically “tie-bet-on” with each syllable pronounced with equal emphasis, it sounds like she’s saying Tie bet on.

The flow is disrupted because of all of these shortcomings.
