Excellent content about using the 8 cultural channels we all have in the context of independent and interdependent modes of seeing the self. Everything is logical and well organized, great examples and useful contrasts! The quality of the audible however needs some attention. There are background squeaks and noises, different sound ambience from different narrators and stumbles in the narrator's performance. Such an excellent book requires a higher quality production.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The voice behind this narration has any number of fatal flaws. First, the voice narrator changes the authors words in a number of contexts from third to first person. She also rearranges the text and graphics putting in an explanation were she feels they could be read over. At various times in the later audio you can hear a phone ringing in the background. Likewise, the author sometimes seems out of breath or needs to take a drink. There is a noticeable difference in voice quality in some sections over others.
What could Hazel Rose Markus and Alana Conner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Markus and Connor produced a well respected text used in classrooms at colleges, universities, and seminaries. They produced a well researched volume.
How could the performance have been better?
The voice author could read the text as it is written to avoid false impressions of who is speaking, the voice author could record smaller sections of text at a time for compilation, and the voice could be recorded without the phone ringing in the background.
Any additional comments?
A new voice recording is needed
