    "Easy to follow"

    Great, short and to the point. I rarely give five stars, but it’s the best book, you'll spend on a audio (I did Audible, but I’ll also buy the book to get the references easily ).

    The way the narrator explained everything was awesome and the tone of their voice was very good. I listened to this off and on because it was quite long. Regardless it's pretty unique.
