hard to get through

The material was interesting and informative, but listening to the presenter was painful. Please use professionals to present these types of books. He must have have been sitting too close to mic because you could hear him suck in his spit; you could hear when is mouth got dry; etc. It would have driven me crazy to listen to him in a classroom , forget about one on one as he was amplified through my car speakers.
