    "Ruined by narration "

    Nice idea for a book and nicely laid out but listening to it was like having teeth pulled. When it's so easy in a studio (or on a laptop) to redo and overdub audio, I don't understand why parts of this book have been left so poor. There's also very strange pronunciation in places that I'm pretty sure isn't just down to the narrator and I coming from different counties. I struggled through to the end but will probably return this book.
