"Okay Introduction for beginners like myself"
A basic introductory help, this is exactly what I wanted. Good refresher text, and I found out a few new things, and brushed up on vocabulary. Several points were made that inspired me to make plans for more research and practice. I will be definately be listening to it a second time soon, and am open to other audio books by same prducers.
