I noticed that if you increased the listening speed to 1 and 1/2 times the normal speed the narrator is actually not sounding too bad.
Disregard reviews from people that have not actually listened to the whole thing! This book stands any ideas you had about IQ tests on their head. I have now listened to this book 2 times, and intend to listen to it many times more, despite it's length.
The only thing I can say is get this book, there are too many things in there to list in a short review like this. It is cheap for the insight it gives to the whole concept of IQ tests and the way they have historically been used to provide 'evidence' to support eugenics, racism and dodgy social policies. The book describes various ways IQ tests have been used as a tool for politics and bending social history. That includes our 11 plus tests designed to favour children from better off families.
The book provides many 'oh my god' moments. Read it and see. You will never trust an IQ test again!

Extremely interesting and thought provoking critical analysis of the historic and current uses and misuses of IQ tests. Very well read too.
