Audible ebook was un-usable from bad sound

What did you love best about Lean Manufacturing Explained?

The book is excellent which I have on my kindle and paperback. The audio book is another story and I was shocked to find it unlistenable after going through several hoops to get it to play. The audio voice is robotic and non-understandable and so painful I had to shut it down in seconds. I expected an audio such as a narrator that I could listen to such as while driving. First to purchase you have to go through several hoops and downloads and complex figuing out how to get it to play. After a day I succeeded in getting it to play in itunes. The book was $3.99 but in a few minutes you have burned up so much time in frustration that the cost would actually be a couple hundred dollars.

What other book might you compare Lean Manufacturing Explained to and why?

All Can Akdeniz books are the best--I cannot figure out how he allowed this audio nightmare to occur. The system for playing audio books has great potential--however its simply not ready to release to the public for sale until they figure out how to do it.

How could the performance have been better?

horrifying sound quality and narration HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN in todays modern world????

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES--now I have to pay a friend or myself to read the book as an audio file on my iphone--then burn it to a cd.

Any additional comments?

Pull audio books untill there is a method to play the books with narration and reasonable sound. Now I have to go through an ADDITIONAL couple of hours to figure how to get a refund for the $3.99 rip
