Interesting facts, but the narrator's lacking

What didn’t you like about Nick Hahn’s performance?

His pronunciation of scientific words should have been researched! It's a little jarring to hear words pronounced as they are spelled as opposed to how they should be said! I have a bit more of a science background than average, and the mispronunciations spread misunderstanding and the belief that science is hard! (It's not)

Any additional comments?

It's a fun book.

ANOTHER book ruined by bad narration

I will never again buy an audiobook produced by Audible. This is the second one I've purchased with a distractingly terrible narrator. His frequent mispronunciations, awkward cadence, and obvious lack of interest in the material made it unlistenable. This did not sound like a professionally produced audiobook. I will be requesting a credit refund (again).
