Any additional comments?

This recording is defective. It's missing seven chapters of the book. I reported this to Audible in October, 2012, and they still haven't corrected it. AND THEY STILL ARE OFFERING THE DEFECTIVE RECORDING FOR SALE! If you look at other comments, you can see that the defect has existed at least since July, 2011. AND YET AUDIBLE CONTINUES TO OFFER THE DEFECTIVE BOOK TO ITS UNSUSPECTING CUSTOMERS! Do I seem angry? Well, I am. I love the idea of Audible, but my experience with this book and their cavalier attitude and inadequate customer service has completely undermined my confidence in the accuracy and completeness of their recordings.
