Good book but at times difficult to understand

I don't always agree with it's content, but I do think everyone who aspires to a career in managment or politics should read this book. While it deals with how to be a sucessful Europian monarch during the 15th century many of the ideas are still applicable today.
But if you have trouble with English Accents you might want to try another edition. The Narrator also has a slight speach inpediment. He pronounced the word "arms" as "alms' among other things.
Also the producer/ writer or anyone on the staff should have thought to say Footnote before launching into the footnotes to avoid further confusion.

Audio is horrible!

Any additional comments?

I think the audio was too bad to tell if I liked either the author or the narrator
