The person reading this is horrible.

The person Audible hired to read this is really bad at their job. They mispronounce words and names they said one sentence ago, and don't know anything about the source material which is very cerebral and this causes them to not understand the flow of the sentences.

This is very painful to listen to.

Pronunciation

If you're going to read words of another language, in this case Sanskrit, you should learn to pronounce things proper. The narrator pronounces "Samsara" as Sam-sarah instead of SAHm - SAHra, "dharmakaya" is dharma-KAY-uh when it should be dharma-k-EYE-AH, and so on. It may seem trivial but it reveals to the audience that the narrator hasn't done his home work, thus making it less appealing. Josiah, do your home work as a narrator.

Hard to find Pith Instructions in audio format

The content of the book is priceless, definitely worth listening to, the pith instructions are hard to find in audio format. The performer can pronounce the words however he wants it doesn't take away from the meaningful content.
