John Lee narration equiv of the burning of books

John Lee narration is the equivalent of the burning of books in the dark ages. John Lee reads the entire book as if it is a spelling contest and his voice intonations are out of touch with the content and meaning. This is the 21st century Enlightenment version of The Burning of Books.

Title has no connection to book.

Title misleading. Thin (ultra thin) version of Tony Robbins, might as well read the master.

Basic and no more than that.

Basic and no more than that. Even the basic Adsense, sponsor, email list, etc. is not elaborated upon (beyond absolutely basic).

Fragmented collection of legends and sayings

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Read in a pleasant coherent manner. Content of story is disappointing, a mambo-jumbo collection of legends, saying some history and some people personal events - All ashkenazi without exception (Jews from Eastern Europe who passed the holocaust). It is not doing justice or honor not to God, not to religion, and definitely not to Judaism. Stupid sayings like: if you drink 96 percent proof alcohol at the beginning of the day you are cleansed from your sins and starting with a new slate.. that is rubbish..

What do you think your next listen will be?

I feel it is a waste of an audio book. Would not listen to it again.

What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love George Guidall - that's why I bought the book.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. It is not doing justice or honor not to God, not to religion, and definitely not to Judaism. Stupid sayings like: if you drink 96 percent proof alcohol at the beginning of the day you are cleansed from your sins and starting with a new slate.. that is rubbish..

Any additional comments?

Disrespectful undertones to religion tradition and history.
