May be relevant, but very difficult to listen to

While I have found many good bits of information in this audiobook it has been extremely difficult to get through. I believe it is the author who is reading himself and how and where he chooses to pause and put emphasis doesn't seem to flow very well with the content.
This is my seventh audiobook but the first that failed to keep my attention while listening. Schaefer does provide some very useful tidbits, but I can't help but wonder if I should have bought the hard copy of the book rather than the audible.
Many chapters are filled with list upon list of tips advice, and ideas, however often times by the third point I've completely lost sight of the list topic and he generally makes no effort to remind the listener of the relevance.
