Adam Curtis is wonderful, but very very poor audio

I didn't want to mark this down for performance.... of Adam Curtis himself I've no problem whatsoever... however the audio quality is very poor and at times difficult to listen to. You expect that to some extent with the archive audio, but the narration itself could have done with a bit of mastering.

Otherwise, gripping, angering, terrifying and compelling, as you would expect. Well-researched and Curtis makes a compelling case.

CUT THE CRAP..

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is one of the most informative audio books I've bought..I learnt so much

What did you like best about this story?

Easy to understand despite dealing with issues such as PSYCHOTHERAPY

Have you listened to any of Adam Curtis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No..but will look him up

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When I understood something that I couldn't before name, that of NEEDS VERSUS DESIRES

Any additional comments?

For me a brilliant listen, heard it about four times and will listen again and again

This is audio from a BBC documentary

This "book" is just a straight audio rip of a TV documentary. It's still a very entertaining few hours but I'm not sure I'm happy paying for something I could have watched for free on the BBC player or YouTube.

audio taken off documentary

great content, some parts are hard to get the context without the video but you can still follow nearly everything.
