Good content, very irritating narration

This is the first book I've listened to on Audible that I wished I had just purchased in hard copy instead. The narrator adds his own content, opinions and emphasis instead of just reading the book. It sounds more like a podcast than an audiobook.

Performance is ruining excellent info

I'm a big fan of Sisson. He knows his stuff and he updates info as he learns more. My problem is with the performance. It's honestly TERRIBLE!

I've done this type of work. It's tough to do. Mr Kearns hasn't done his homework. He adds odd pauses, gets hung up mid-sentence, incorrectly pronounces common words, and- worst of all- adds an annoying chuckle to his voice at completely inappropriate times.

Mark Sisson's work deserves a much better presentation. I'm profoundly disappointed! Is Brad Kearns a friend of a friend at Primal, perhaps? I just can't understand how he was given this work.

Make 'and' now back to the text' a drinking game

I am shocked that this version was ever published. I have never witnessed so many complete distractions from the text from the reader's own commentary. The only time that is appropriate is when the author is the reader. you have to listen incredibly closely to ensure that you're getting what the author intended versus the reader's own commentary

A+ Content; F Narration

As a listener of an audiobook, you shouldn't have to guess when you're hearing the actual book vs when you're hearing the narrator editorializing. Unfortunately, that's required if you listen to this version.

Kearns sounds like a nice guy, but he mispronounces words regularly, inserts random pauses, peppers the narration with "uh"s, and adds awkward laughs to serious messages from the author. Just not high quality as you'd expect from everything else Sisson touches.

I Love It

A very educational, including the occasional commentary from the narrator, "...and back to the book..."

Amazing information but nails on a chalkboard

Life-changing information. Using this book I’ve gained more mental clarity and sustain energy but the narration is pretty rough. I didn’t know one could sound so condescending while reading a book.

At first....

So at first the editorial comments the narrator threw in bugged me. Then, he states later in the book that the narrator is also a co-author. This made his comments make more sense to me and not just some narrator throwing in his two cents. Very informative book and easy to follow.

this could be so good if not for the narator

the book is great, the narrator is incredibly unprofessional. I would recommend to buy the book, not the audioversion
he is constantly adding things, chuckling or just mainly sounds like a teenager reading a book

Great book, terrible reader

Title says it all, the guy reading this book is extremely distracted and constantly adds his own irrelevant input.

Great listen, worth getting!

Someone said they found the readers little deviations from the printed text with his own additional information to be distracting or annoying or something. However, he is clearly knowledgeable and we found it enhanced the experience as well as at times being quite amusing.

Brilliant information, poor narration

As a previous commenter remarked on, the narration is frustrating. Mumbling, stumbling and basic reading errors take the emphasis off the information which as always is fantastic. I have enjoyed all the Primal Blueprint series, text and audio, but this is a disappointment.

Great narration

I almost didn't get this book because of the bad rap the narrator got in reviews. I got it anyway. Brad Kearns style and knowledge adds to the narration and turns what otherwise could be just a reading of the book into a friendly conversation type of presentation.

An absolute must read for those wanting to live a healthy life

The advice in this book is quite simply revolutionary, and yet in line with the science, despite what public health policy would sometimes lead us to believe. Purchase it. Implement its advice. And enjoy the benefits for life.

Change your diet, change your life.

Really enjoyed the book. I’ve implemented Mark’s strategies and life’s good. Took about 4 weeks to adapt but now it’s like I’m a different person. Would prefer to listen to Mark speak than this bloke though. IMO.
