Great guide but narration poor
Great guide by an author with a huge amount of experience to share. Unfortunately a tad condescending in places - we know we won't be delivering the Gettisburg address but don't need to be reminded of such. This may well be the narrator's fault. Also, can Audible please ban British narrator's from doing irritating American accents please?? But don't let that put you off an excellent guide.
