Very Educational, Great Narrator!!

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

The complexity does ramp up a bit later in the book, but it's very informative!

robo-voice

really disappointed. Auto generated audio. mechanical intonation pattern rendered listening unbearable. I wish I readily knew how to ask for my credit back. I won't be making it through this version. no reflection on the actual book, I haven't read it
