great narration and great content.

loved the narration. and the content was dense, and informative without being boring. I recommend to anyone who is interested in how data can tell stories and how we can learn from otherwise ignored information.

It is Like Listening to the AflacDuck for 11 Hours

What would have made Predictive Analytics better?

Make it abridged, have another performer. Frantela is unbearable.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His lame attempt to mimic the authors delivery style.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Predictive Analytics?

cut it to one third of what it is today.

Any additional comments?

Yea; tell Frantela not to EVER try to mimic the author.
