Great book, but it could be a much better product

The summary of this great book includes the sentence "The anthology is indexed by title, author and first line". This might be true for the book itself, but a file containing this index is not included and the chapters are given numbers, not informative names. With just a bit of effort on the part of Audible, this could have been a good product. I do wonder sometimes. Why am I having to suggest something so obvious?
