Had no time to read the 450 pages, so this audiobook was a great way to get my head around the gyst of the book.
I'm sure I missed out on some great details and the purported quality of the authors thought process. But being able to grasp the main concepts, considered by themselves to be tantamount in the field, in a short 30 minutes (complete on a single train ride home from work), was for me an awesome deal for just 4 bucks. I highly recommend this work.
Only setback is the narration quality - the reader wasn't a particularly experienced/professional "audiobook reader," if you will. He narrates fast and without a full understanding of the material and lacks a sense of conveyance. As I have dabbled in audio engineering, the mic-ing is not great either. So you have to be a bit imaginative in discerning Jared Diamond's original intent through the various layers of interpretation - shortened text & narrator's speech.
All in all, a wonderful product to exist on the open market. 5 stars!
