Easy to understand

Not messed up with too much technical information and mostly focused on the general picture. Easy to remember the content and to realize in business.

The narrator is awful

Can’t finish audiobook because narrator reads at a snails pace. It’s terrible, takes several minutes to read a half page. I never heard anything this bad before. It could easily be narrated in 1/4 of the time that this guy does it in. It’s borderline egregious. Stay a way unless you have nothing but time

Good Introductory Book

Don't expect super detail here. It really is what it purports to be "for dummies".

Fun, casual, contemporary explanation of the overall processes involved. Very little actual mathematics or depth.

Good starting point to understand the field.
