    "Good story, but very hard to listen to"

    I really enjoyed the "down-to-earth" storytelling of RH Conwell, but this version is hard to listen to.

    The narrator, Jason McCoy, has such awkward phrasing and inflection in his voice, it's difficult to determine when a paragraph, story, or sentence begins & ends. In each sentence, he's like an announcer gearing up his voice (tone, volume) for a big announcement, then never getting to the announcement, then gearing up his voice again. Basically, he puts emphasis on the wrong parts of a sentence, which screws up the intention of the sentence, and the listener's experience. It makes the content very hard to follow.

    I would strongly recommned "Acres of Diamonds," but NOTHING narrated by Jason McCoy.

    "Good Biography, Subpar Narration"

    Acres of Diamonds is a good, inspiring story about the gentleman who started Temple University. I was, however, largely underwhelmed overall.

    The good: it's a good and interesting biography of someone who achieved greatness. It contains a number of classic success principles with accompanying good illustrations of the principles.

    The bad: the narration is unbelievably subpar. If I were to recommend the book, I'd recommend paper or hardcover, not the audiobook. The narrator mispronounces numerous words throughout the text. This was very distracting, surprising and disappointing. Some examples: [gratutious] instead of gratuitous (chapter 6), [vaHEEmently] for vehemently, clergymen pronounced with a hard G sound, [passtrate] for pastorate, welded instead of wielded, [uRIZZtocrassy] for aristocracy, [morodd] for myriad and [corderly] for cordially. These are only a few examples. Better narration would help. The book proved useful, though not very memorable or impressive.
