Great for anyone interested in learning about this topic

I have the physical copy, but couldn’t get excited about reading it, despite the surgery coming up in a few months for myself. I decided why not try it on audiobook? Well, the narrator is wonderful and makes the textbook feel like a fun class you feel interested in listening to! So, a HUGE Thank you for this option! Much gratitude.
