Avoid this book at all costs

What would have made Psychology at the Movies better?

The narration sounds like a robot. Very difficult to even sit through 5 minutes

Would you ever listen to anything by Skip Dine Young again?

Author yes

How could the performance have been better?

Darren Stephens' performance is flat and difficult to listen to. NO modulation, no feeling, it really sounds like an artificial voice. So sorry. Cannot even listen past the 1st chapter.

Any additional comments?

I wish I had not purchased this book
