Great content, not so great recording
I really enjoyed the book and listen to Ken and Lynn's podcast "The Sweep Spot". this book expands on their experience in the park in a way that I never got in their podcast. I would highly recommend the book to anyone interested in theme parks, especially Disney. The only reason I am not giving this book all five stars is the recording quality. Much of the time Ken's microphone is cranked way too high and sounds pretty terrible. Also around chapter 14 there are some bizarre sounds from what I can only guess is a computer. If they used a decent audio recorder and microphone at the right level it would make a world of difference. Then we could really get the full experience in of Ken's silky smooth radio voice, I am not kidding it's pretty amazing.

Great Story with some catches
The story is great and very interesting. Downside are the regular audio artifacts.. some places the audio stutters badly. Other areas there are a lot of sounds from the Windows OS and some other sounds creeping like someone talking or music then immediately cuts out. Happens throughout the reading. Distracting but doesn’t take away from the story too much. Still listenable.
