Horrible Background Music Continuously

This was the most frustrating Audio Book because I could not hear what the narrator was saying. Loud music was playing constantly, and half of the time, it was dreadful Hard Rock screaming noise.

Great information, poor production.

People should know what they are paying for before they purchase. I've listened to Gardiner's previous book, Secrets of the Serpent, and Mysteries of the Ancient World is about the same but more to the point. This book does, however, follow the same musical production style as his serpent book. That is, music is played continuously from second 01 through the end of the audio book. Rather loud music. Most of the music is decent, though loud, but there were also a number of metal songs played which was horribly distracting. I like heavy metal but anyone should know better than to put such music in an audio book.

Furthermore, you should know that much of the book is dramatic musical pauses between statements. Chapter 3 and the beginning of chapter 4 is literally 20+ minutes of straight music, no reading. So when you purchase this know that you are not getting 3 hours and 17 minutes of book.

Chapters 4-8 are interviews of the other authors: experts in ancient Nordic, Celtic, Egyptian, Roman, etc... life and their associated symbols throughout history. This book contains great information if you can just get past the musical additions. You are spending ~$15 for this, which is very steep. I suggest reading his books instead if you think the music will bother you because obviously whoever is producing his titles is not paying attention to all of the negative music reviews people are leaving behind.
