no chapter titles and chapter numbers are wrong

especially being a reference book the chapter titles should be inserted to the player. at least you could make the chapters in the book line up with the chapters in the audible player.

Complicated material = horrible narration

Why do the pulp fiction books have wonderful narration and the science/medical books have horrible narrators. I JUST returned "Deadly Outbreaks" b/c the narrator sounded like a Captain Kirk robot set at 1/2 speed. Now this one sounds like someone who was forced to read this book so is reading the material as monotone and fast as possible. I purchased this b/c my professor who knows his material just couldn't keep peoples attention with his boring droning voice. Now I'm returning this b/c the narrator is just as droning. I'm not expecting miracles with a science book, but keep my interest by varying your voice occasionally!

This is a vague overview at best

Not helpful if you are studying for a medical program requiring you to learn bacteriology or medical micro unless you want an overview of what you will eventually learn.. I wanted an audio companion for studying and this is not helpful for anything that I am learning In my bacteriology class.

appalling narration

Appalling narration but otherwise good. like listening to a computer voice. How hard can it be to get a decent narrator who can pronounce technical terms correctly?
