Bit dull voice but good audiobook

The voice is a bit dull but everyone should hear it, since Buddhism makes the world and your mind a better place :)

A great, quick listen

This is a great, quick listen. Practical scenarios are used to assist with learning and the narration is well done. I'd recommend.
