Useful and informative
This is one of those times that I set out to learn something with the thought that it would further my goals, only to find out that this is not something I want to do after all.
In fairness, this book is jam packed with useful, actionable content delivered in a concise, entertaining manner.
But my biggest takeaway is that recording an audiobook is vastly more work than I'm willing to put into it and it's not a process nor a skillset that I would enjoy.
However, it has gone a long way toward helping me to appreciate the amount of work that goes into an audiobook as well as the challenges. And I think just maybe I might have a better understanding now of the sorts of things I should provide to my narrators in preparation for having a book recorded.

This is a MUST listen if you are entertaining the idea of producing audiobooks. It’s an easy listen, chalk full of details and insight!

I'm considering making audio books of my own serialised novels and don't want the expense of hiring an actor. This gave some great tips.
