Physically painful background music

I really wanted to be able to love this, but no matter how I tinkered with the settings the background noises/music were sudden, sharp, jarring and incredibly distracting. Please, please remaster this without the odd music! I'm not exaggerating, it is physically painful to my ears. I couldn't listen past 4 minutes.
When I jumped ahead the background music wasn't as bad but was weird and wobbly and made me feel a bit woozy and odd. Maybe it is because I occasionally get migraines and it wouldn't do this to someone else, but I really thing a remastering should be considered.
I really want to love this!

Fun and interesting on the whole. Discovered Sindhu Vee who is very interesting, funny, smart and fun to listen to. Other cast members are also quite funny but one cast member is trying so hard to be funny and sometimes comes off a bit mean.

The narrator sounds so bored! The story is interesting and worthwhile. It's a shame it wasn't executed better.

Pros: the book contained some good advice and interesting personal anecdotes by the author

Cons: these have nothing in to do with Audrey Hepburn or even just being ‘classic’. It was all very personal to the author. No attempts were made to link the content to the subject matter.

I returned the book after reaching Chapter 6 and only catching one passing reference to Audrey Hepburn.


A more apt title would be : How to remember your manners and navigate modern etiquette

As I said, good to know, but nothing to do with Audrey Hepburn or being classic in any way.
