The audio book seems to be in a random order.

I would not recommend this book to anyone under any circumstances.

When I started listening to the book, after the first 5 seconds about it being an Audible book, it started talking about Book 4. Trying out the subsequent chapters they seem to be in a random order. Books 15 & 16 (Audible chapter 2) was followed by book 2 (Audible chapter 3), and so forth.

After sampling the audio book chapters by listening to a few seconds at the beginning of each, I concluded that it was a total waste of time listening to anything in detail because of the poor editing. It would not be worthwhile going from one random place in the book to another.

They should pull this book from their offering until it has been corrected.
