Don’t buy this book!
I have no idea who this book was written for. It provides more confusion than it does information regarding horse care. It talks more about the author and copyrights and there is content. My purchasing it was a huge mistake, can’t believe I wasted the money. It’s like a commercial or in for Marshall encouraging you to buy other books of its kind totally getting off the subject of horses. Obviously adjustments were not made for audio so it should have not been marketed or so for audio. I can’t believe the program is actually making me give it one star.

Not much information
This book contains information more like an article to me.
The narration is awful. At first, I really thought it was a computer voice.
