Not a quality product

The volume of the performances are not consistent. There is no documentation so you don't know what excerpt that you are listening to. If you try to read along, good luck. I would not buy this again. It was cheap, but it isn't helpful. There are 12 chapters called "Chapter 1..... Chapter 12".

Terrible Recording Quality

Sounds like an old 78 rpm record. Very uneven sound, complete with clicks, tape hiss, and wheezing.
In bad need of remastering!

can't understand the dude

i barely made it to chapter two. The narrator was very hard to understand. Needs to read without any accents.
