This is a live presentation, not an audiobook.

This is a short live presentation, NOT an audiobook as marketed. I'm assuming the book has more information not contained in this presentation. I expect an audiobook to be a reading of the book, not a shortened version of the highlights of the book. I'm disappointed.

Not the full book

This is not the full book! This is only a 1-hr lecture about the principles contained in the book. It's a good lecture, but was disappointed because I thought I was buying the full book.

Good sermon, but was hoping for the book

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

The book really helped me a lot. Was hoping to listen to the book, but this was a recorded sermon. The sermon was good. However, just not what I was expecting to hear when purchasing. I thought this would be a reading of the book... which I've been waiting for for years. If anyone knows how to get the reading of the book, please let me know.

What could William Backus and Marie Chapian have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Provide a reading of the actual book.

Lecture, not the book.

I have read this book. I give 5 starts to the book. I actually didn’t get to read the last chapter of this book because I forgot my copy in the airplane recently when I took it in a trip. Then I bought the audio book, hoping I would be able to listen to the last chapter. I thought it was strange the book could be read in only 56 min, however I really like the book and thought I would take a chance. By the way, this is the first book I got using Audible. This turned out to be a lecture by the author, and it was a good lecture, more like a sermon, however I have to agree that advertising this as an audiobook is misleading. You could find a lecture very similar in YouTube for free. Rating 2 stars due to the advertising as book and it’s a lecture. Great lecture, though.

Thought I was purchasing the whole book.

Did I really just pay twenty dollars for chapter one? What a Rip off. I am disappointed that the BBC whole book is not available.

Not the actual book

This was a presentation given by the author about similar concepts, but not the actual book.

Good but just a lecture

This was a very good 1 hour lecture, but I was expecting a condensed version of the book. The description needs to be more clear. Otherwise I enjoyed it quite a bit. I have several of the author’s books which I highly recommend. You really can be free of wrong thinking!

Not a narration of the book!

This seems to be a talk by the author. During the talk he makes no references to the book although he talks about a similar subject matter. Interesting talk but not a reading of the book by this title.

Good message - awful sound!

This is NOT an audio version of the book. It is a speech given by William Backus. I feel cheated as I thought it WAS the audio version of the book.

The recording is poor and Wm Backus's voice is sometimes too loud and, to me, very annoying. The content is very good but, compared with the book, very, very short. Perhaps it is a good introduction to the book.

I cannot recommend it. I think Audible should make it clear that it is NOT an audio version of the book. The quality of the recording and voice is so annoying that I could not listen again.
