Gets the main points across and saves you time

Please ignore the reviewer who gave this a one star rating because they downloaded this by mistake. This audio book is well read, gets the main points across and will save you a lot of time (vs listening to the full original) I might go on to read or listen to the full book at a later date, but I think I have taken what I need from this... Sleep is important and should be prioritised :-)

Saves Time

Great content and concise. Using this hour to hear summaries of each chapter allow me to skip the majority of the full book when listening so I can get to the specific areas that interest / pertain to me. Well worth it and probably saved me 8+ hours of time from the full book version. Keep up the great work ZipReads.
