terrible narrator. Awful text to speech

Have no idea if the story was good listening to the robot was too bad.

Have heard worse

The narration sounds like a high quality robot, but the pauses are in the wrong place. Also the narration makes references to thing that can be seen. As far as the actual content, it gets to very specific implementation details rather than focusing on the concepts.

Voice speaker pauses after many words

The voice speaker pauses after the first word of every sentence and key words are mispronounced. The content isn't well explained.

Voice acting is terrible.

It's a cut'n'paste job similar to a lot of YouTube mass produced content. Painful to listen to.

Well-organized.

Well-written. Well-organized. It covers almost every detail of creating a distributed system and problems one could face. And it will give you good ideas to apply to your own systems. You will build up knowledge from the basics to most advanced techniques.

The narration is so terrible it obscures content.

How can this narration be considered acceptable? The narrator sounds like a machine, with gaspy, unnatural pauses before key terms. His speed is uneven and chaotic, and his monotone voice is unbearably slow. Buy the text version and listen to it using Google Books Read Aloud feature, it will sound more human.

Not in depth, more so an overview

Useful info regarding:
scaling horizontal vs vertica,l
distributed systems designs,
availability consistency tolerance,
sharding,
caching,
hashing,
client server / slave master model

Once again this was a very brief overview. Not in depth does leave out info such as security, monitoring, etc.
