Missing Harvey Mackay as the reader

His books are very helpful and I really enjoy his memorable points. However, this is the first Audible book by Mr. Mackay that has not been recorded by him. I miss not hearing Mr. Mackay and only hope that there was just not time in his schedule to record the book for Audible, and that there is not a health or other reason why we cannot hear from him on this, his latest book.

I'm disappointed that the narrator does not have the same folksy style and instead has a rapid pace, clipped style of presentation. The narrator is very capable, but he just doesn't match the style of the author -- and that's what I always look forward to in Audible and the reason why I choose Audible...instead of reading. For this one book, I suggest buying the printed copy. But do buy the other versions narrated by Mr. Mackay on Audible.
