Narrator Issues

Only got half way through. In part due to narrator issues, in part because it's abridged and profound teachings sound ungenuine in the cliff notes version.

Thich Nhat Hanh's teachings are amazing when he teaches them, only half as useful when someone else does. He has a sense of humor, he's TEACHING that a sense of humor is important, but these narrators they keep hiring totally miss it and deliver things that are clearly jokes (which you recognize if you've actually listened to Thich Nhat Hahn teaching) very seriously as profound bits of wisdom, radically changing the meaning, and making him sound remote and unrelateable. So disappointing. The guy is funny, that's who he is, if he's too busy to read the books himself, I really wish they'd hire actors to do it and make them actually listen to him first. I'd recommended reading everything available he's narrated himself first (there seem to be a few things, start with Peacemaking), then once you know who he is, tackling these badly narrated works with an alertness to pick up on places where the meaning is changed by the poor narration.
