Inapt title, poor narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

1. The content is not what the title is about. Its not about HIPAA, its about measures you take to comply with HIPAA. Also the book simply guides you to the source from where you can get such compliance. Opinion/insight is missing.
2. Narration is extremely poor. Its not a novel that someone can sprint through. Narration is fast (for these kind of topic), is monotonous, and without any impact.

What could James Scott have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Better insight on what HIPAA, Hospital IT, and Healthcare Information Technology is. Hint: Preamble, scope, burden, how we landed here etc.

How could the performance have been better?

Better narration which I believe is the weakest part of this book

Could you see The Book on Healthcare IT being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Absolutely not

Very difficult to follow in audio format

I had difficulty following this book, especially because of the abundance of headlines, subheadings, and bulleted lists. The narrator was too robotic for me to be able to distinguish between different bullets and headlines.
