Transforming hell into heaven
A beautiful introduction to Buddhist Tantra based on the Tilopa’s sutras (The father of the Tibetan-Buddhism lineage (Tilopa -> Naropa->Marpa -> Milarepa).
As always, Osho's speaking is beyond words.

Rambly, heady stuff...
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Osho is pretty rambly on those live recordings. He likes to throw lots of factoids at his devotees. It's all from the head. Very disapointing overall. However, I did participate years ago in a few worshops in Vancouver with someone who lived with a Osho for a while. This Vancouver teacher was a great teacher and I really trust his opinion to this day. He did mention that Osho was the real deal and I believe Osho it despite of those tapes.
He had lots of great body-release breathing techniques, etc. But nothing is new in those live tapes. All that being said, I was very surprised by a 'newer' teacher: Adyashanti. Don't get fooled by the fact he is a California dude and has no beard. Adya is clearly a great teacher, a real good one. Lots of insights in the audiobook I got. He is a bit more à la Krishnamurti... but he offers a clearer path than 'K' and he is less critical of society's structures, etc. Than 'K'. Best,
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Osho?
You can't have an actor replace a spiritual master, unless you really need to. I am not bothered that much by Osho's East Indian accent. His vocabulary is good and he is a very-well read fellow.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I am sorry, not much in my opinion. Both Osho purchases fall in the waste of cash category... though I still respect him. Osho's real edge was more the vast array of techniques from different traditions he put together. His 'two cents' on the tantra is not something of much value in my opinion. Keep your dough from some better stuff.
