Why Can't Our Best Schools Train a Fluent Narrator

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I have tried to listen to this book because the topic, research and assertions really interest me. However, the robotic narration makes it very difficult to tolerate.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Costanzo?

L.J. Ganser, who narrated Class Warfare did a much better job.

Who hired this guy that is narrating this?

The narrator is horrible. As a person that uses audio books as an accommodation to access these books as quickly as others. But this audio book narration is the worst! It sounds like a robot is reading it. Pauses in weird spots and emphasis in weird parts as well.
