Exceptional book. Paced too fast lacked modulation

Exceptional book by one of the best teachers of the "New Thought" movement. Grateful to have it in audible form as hearing as eyesight not the best. Each chapter worthy of multiple listens. Issue was with same as most audible offerings pace was rushed. Not as if being read aloud in a book club or a sickbed. Modulation way too even like on a metronome. Fast metronome... At least it was listenable if not entertaining. There are certain readers that I can't listen to due to mismatched intonation compared to the text compared to my experience in my mind when reading it to myself. It's a shame so many good important works rendered useless by a poor reader. This one is OK and still, as I said, grateful to have it available.
