Great Book Bad Narrator
This is a great book but the narration gets in the way. There are so many great ideas and lessons in the book. I read the orginal book and I was blown away as to how many useful suggestions there were.
Although this is the orginal book being read that is exactly what Jason McCoy does; he reads the book. His narration is chopping, strained, and at times incomprehensible. It doesn't appear that he has ever read the book before so he fumbles his way through phrases and sometimes complete paragraphs.
I would suggest this book to anyone, but I would recommend you either by the book or try to find it narrated by someone else. If you do find the latter, please let me know because I want a GOOD audio copy.

This is the most horrible audio book I have ever bought. The speaker uses big words and complicated expression. He also uses a one tone voice throughout the 4 hours and I can almost die of boredom and understanding the context. What he did is what we were taught never to do at public speaking. YAWN.........
Can I get a refund?? :-(
