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.

I enjoyed this "book" even though much of the information was information I already knew. Unfortunately, the narration is horrible. The clarity of the recording is one issue, and this is compounded by a very poor narration. The narrator sounds as if he were reading the book for the first time, which, given he is the author is confusing. There are needless breaks in sentences, mis-pronounced sentences, and stumbles over the words. Additionally there seems to be no consistency between pausing between sentences, heading, chapters, etc. In some places they run together, and in others there are gaps that just do not make sense in the context of what is being said. This is truly a case where a professional narrator would have made a good book great, and a poor narrator, made what appeared to be a good book, poor.
