US centric. Not for UK. Painful delivery as well

The urls are for helping those in the US. Whilst I’m sure I would gain something if I listened until the end I just feel that enough is enough and I need to find a more UK centric book. The narrator was also making me fall asleep whilst driving - not healthy.

Not well laid out. No story to follow. Not entertaining at all.

Ok, this is supposed to be the sweet and short summation of the knowledge gained over 40 books and 2 years of study. I get it. It may not be super entertaining but they didn't even try to create a story. Is kind of painful to listen to. Technically it's ok. There are better versions of this book out there. I listened to it a few times. It's not going to make my heavy rotation list.

The Narrator is pretty bad

The performance is really bad. It sounds almost like the doesn't know how to read very well. Cadence and tempo changes in speech is mildly annoying. not sure ill make it through the whole book because of it.
