Poor Reading

Great Content, but the distractingly pour production quality & reading. The reading is rushed with no inflections for subheads or natural pauses. Terrible, but if you can get through that, the content is worth some effort. Unfortunately, this becomes a better read than listen due to the audio recording.

Horrible, Horrible, Horrible

I have purchased nearly 100 audiobooks from Audible and (to the best of my recollection) have never written a review. Until now.

The reading of this book is SO BAD that I find myself without the words to describe it. The reader tears through the sentencces at a breakneck pace. He never pauses, never inserts a natural break in the pace of his reading for section headings. It's exhausting to listen to this reading - and with a book of this sort, the last thing it should be is exhausting.

If you're going to read this book, buy it and make your own audio version of it. It couln't possibly any worse than this one. Don't reward content providers who produce low-quality content like this. Don't buy this audiobook. If you do, I'm sure you'll soon find yourself following in my footsteps and demanding a refund from Audible.

P.S. Audible, I'm irritated that I have to give this reading even one star. Whoever produced this should have stars taken away from them.

Reads fast with no emphasis

The content of this book can be life changing and I have searched for an audible book for quite a while. How disappointed I am to find that the narrator speeds through as if he were reading a phone book. It is better than having a computer generated audio file, but barely. I wonder how this ever got published.

I guess it simply comes down to the value of the content.

Don't Waste Your Mondy

I wish I had read the other reviews before I purchased this... though why, based on those reviews it had a 4 star rating when I bought it, is beyond me! I agree with most of the other reviews. The reader tears through the material with NO IDEA OF WHAT HE'S SAYING. The reading is, therefore, mechanical and completely devoid of any inherent understanding! If you can imagine a dictionary being read to you in an essential monotone with no vocal indication of when you are being introduced to a new word, vs. the meaning of the word, vs. word used in a sentence... you've a good idea of what this is like. Truly horrid. If I could return it, I would.

Science of Mind

I like the ideas presented, and will read this book so that I can give myself time to absorb the concepts and teachings. I was disappointed in the audio book. The reader read at the same pace (fast) without much inflection, and consistently mispronounced some of the words.

Jason McCoy reads like a cardboard robot

What made the experience of listening to The Science of Mind the most enjoyable?

Jason McCoy should never read another audio book because he sounds like cardboard. If anyone sees a book read by Jason McCoy... run away!!!!

Which character – as performed by Jason McCoy – was your favorite?

Jason McCoy is the worst audiobook reader on earth. He is a cardboard reader that never should have had the opportunity to read an audiobook. He doesn't have any emotions and doesn't stop for periods or comma's. He reads like a robot.

Wonderful book marred by an uninspired narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The Science of Mind is such an important book, but, unfortunately, this is a terrible audio version. It's not the quality, but the narrator mispronounces words constantly (like Duality is pronounced Dulty; Omnipotence is pronounced Omni Potence; Results sounds like Resots, and it's on and on and on). Clearly, he has never been around this material, no one coached his pronunciation, and they let it stand. It is so annoying it's hard to listen to. When one thinks that Science of Mind principles out of the mouth of someone as inspired as Louise Hay sounds like beautiful poetry to me, this audio sounds like a dull lecture in comparison.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Horrible narrator. Sorry to say. Mispronounces very important words over and over again.

Long, Fast Speaker, Worth It!

It's a lot of material. I can see why some might speak to fast the narrator reads. I'm glad he did. A lot of meat, some bones. Will listen to a chapter again hear and there as a refresher.

Just get it!

Would you listen to The Science of Mind again? Why?

There hasn't been a day since I got this that I haven't listened to it and its almost 10 hours! If you're interested in this genre then this is for you.

Some good content but inaccurate title

As my heading suggests this book is not without some merit but should be renamed God exists and here’s why. One comment was “you have to be insane not to believe in god” Really badly narrated as well, it is extremely fast and doesn’t even draw breath between chapters. Very disappointing.
