Worst reader ever.
The computer-generated voice on my e-reader gives a smoother presentation and adds more inflection than this reader. He does not appear to understand the concept of phrasing, because it sounds like he takes a breath in between each word. It was so bad I could not finish what might have been an interesting book.
The book has a lot of interesting information, but buy the book, do not buy the audiobook.
