Would you try another book written by Judson Brewer and Jon Kabat-Zinn - foreward or narrated by P. J. Ochlan?

Nope

What didn’t you like about P. J. Ochlan’s performance?

Everything! The narrator sounded like a computer. I could only manage a few minutes before having to turn it off.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No idea since I couldn't listen to it!
