Quick stories about crazy people.

Would you try another book from Alan Hall, PhD and/or David Winograd?

Sure! I found the author's stories engaging and the narrator's voice entertaining although annoying at times (too much embelishment).

Were the concepts of this book easy to follow, or were they too technical?

The concepts were too technical and dry--that's why i gave the review only 3 stars. I found the stories easy to follow, though.This is where narrorator Winograd's cheerful voice helped/

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narrorator spoke fast and that made the technical parts of the story hard to follow.
