What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Surely a better reader could have been used Great subject but too hard to listen to
Would you ever listen to anything by Jill Geisler again?
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Still worth the listen. Learned a lot. Helped me even more second time that I listened. The reader was enthusiastic.
Useful information and covers a broad range of topics, but uses a lot of bulleted lists and self assessment tests, they don't lend themselves to an audio book.
