This book is an insult to the reader

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Another writer, another narrator.

Has A Prescription for Retail Pharmacy turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, as a physician, I would like more information in this area, but not from this author.

What didn’t you like about Jean-Marc Bovee’s performance?

He has a condescending tone and a high pitched voice causes me to cringe just listening to him. I tried to endure this title, but just could not.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It might, somewhere, but I couldn't get through it. Too annoying to listen to for long enough at one sitting. I tried several times, just to be sure it wasn't my mood, or bad mood.

Any additional comments?

Maybe some of you can tolerate this, but I have been listening to audio books for many years and don't ever remember one that I couldn't bear to listen to. Bad content, bad delivery. The author has made some attempt to give his point of view of what it is like to be a pharmacist, but only the "hassles" of being a retail pharmacist and having to deal with the public. He sounds like he doesn't value his customers. He thinks they ask stupid questions, ask too many questions and are in general morons. He doesn't like pharmacy techs much either. Mostly this is his long reiteration of what a pain in the neck it is to be a retail pharmacist.

I wanted to understand more about retail pharmacy operations; this was like one big rant.
