This review does NOT cover the content of the book

This is strictly regarding the translation of the book into audio format. If it was for the content it would be an easy 5 stars. I'm also not factoring in the PDF of the book that is included with purchase.

I feel like this is good as a primer before reading the book, or good if you're looking for a rough overview. But to get an actual deep understanding you'll need the physical book. The one change that would help a lot is describing the photos. Quite often you hear "Write your code like this" without knowing what is being discussed. Still, I'm glad I listened to it and would recommend it.
