What does Danny Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Danny Campbell is an excellent narrator. I've listened to several other books he has narrated and I'm always impressed.
Any additional comments?
First let me say this, I've read and marked up both my physical copy and e-book of Left of Bang. In addition, I've completed the fantastic Basic and Advanced training course for the program. I decided to also grab the audiobook so that I could further my learning and listen to the concepts again and again as I drive. However, while listening to the audio I found it hard to follow along and stay engaged.
The main issue I have with the audio version is that the content of the book doesn't lend itself well to an audio format, through no fault of the highly skilled authors, or the talented narrator. The content is so rich, and requires such careful study, that simply listening to the audiobook leaves the listener with the sense they've missed something valuable.
That being said, do study this book, learn from it, apply the skills to enhance your safety.

The book doesn't really cover anything useful to anyone who understands situational awareness. The government paid a group to train our Soldiers and Marines to actually pay attention and practice situational awareness. Any combat arms MOS already does this. The book discusses how we need to be aware of anomalies such as entering an area that's too quiet when it's normally bustling with activity. The remaining examples are mostly redundant examples of reading body language that anyone with any level of social skills already knows- detecting signs of nervousness or confidence, etc. I wish I could say that it's a surprise to think that the government paid some civilian agency for this training, but it's not. In my career, I've seen millions wasted on similar programs.

really good book, although some parts did lag a little, the content is very well put together, set out a lot like a training presentation, although very interesting content.
definitely one id recommend.
In our complex society this is essential reading for those who want to develop skills in awareness and assist in keeping our culture safe..
