Good info but hard to follow

The information in this book is useful. However, both the author and the narrator speak in such a way that can be confusing to many readers. With the flaw in speech of one person overlapping the flaws of another, it became very difficult to listen to yet still not so convoluted as to not be able to understand.

Can I have my credit back?

I almost finished the book through sheer willpower during drives...do not suffer as I have.

The narrator is okay, I will give them kudos as I can only imagine how many retakes they have had to take to manage reading the book off as it is written.

It sounds like this book may have first been written in a foreign language, then poorly translated with an auto translate program, then topped off with the "editor" going through and picking the most "elaborate" upgrade for each word. even common English word phrases are butchered with alternate words.

it's possible the book may be technically grammatically correct...bit if so it is not smoothly done and I feel the book was put through 0 revision processes after the words were spilled onto paper.


I will be submitting a request to have my account refunded for this "listen".
