Good content, bad narration Part 2

As a book, I'm sure this would've been a good read. The content is good and the approach to learning Japanese is a little bit different than traditional methods, and I found it helpful. As an audiobook, I found it difficult to listen to. The narrator is not a professional narrator but the author himself, who mumbles at times, speaks too softly at times, breathes loudly at times. It's distracting and I can only take so much of it. I'll get the eBook if there is one and ditch this audiobook.
