    "Quality of content going downhill BIG TIME"
    What would have made May 12, 2017 better?

    Over the past year or two, the format and content quality have really gone downhill.This past 2 weeks with the new: "Here is 5 stories you need to know", it has almost become useless to me. Too many irrelevant topics that run too long.


    What could The Wall Street Journal have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Go back to the format of a couple of years ago with a lot more info., headlines, market data, actionable content like airline-related, health, and technology topics on Thursdays


    What does Alexander Quincy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A good narrator


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from May 12, 2017?

    Past two weeks, I have been skipping most of the 5 daily articles - too long and mostly irrelevant - very little actionable content

    Story
    "Too fluffy"

    Over the past two weeks I've been skipping more stories than I listen to. The previous format with headlines and summaries at least gave me a notion of something I might want to look at more later, and the stories had some substance. Tv vs cable or a review of Guardians of the Galaxy are not things I want to waste my limited time listening to.

    Story
    "Please restore the prior format"
    What was most disappointing about The Wall Street Journal’s story?

    Over the past few weeks, this content has declined dramatically. There are now only five stories per day, most of which are not news articles and many of which are from previous days.

    Please restore the prior format which focused on the most important business and economic stories in today's paper.

    I have been listening to the WSJ on audible on my way to work for many years and have enjoyed it until the recent changes.

    Story
    "Miscategorized - should be in "Lifestyle" section"

    The morning read continues to be in Audibles "Business" section of Newspapers and Magazines. With the recent format change, it belongs in the Lifestyle or Entertainment section. Very little, if any, news about business in the new audio format.
