Would you recommend Chess: From Beginner to Pro to your friends? Why or why not?
I was unable to even listen to this audio book because of the poor quality of the narration. I felt like I was listening to a high school book report being presented aloud. Poor diction, terrible speaking rhythm, and absolutely no sense of dynamics
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jay Dee Johns III?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The text itself seemed interesting, I just wish I could get past the horrible presentation.

Don't waste your money
Whereas this book may be helpful in written form, it is completely useless for an audible book. The description of moves are stated too much in the abstract to be understood by the oral learner. Also the narration is perhaps the worst I've heard from any book on audible thus far. Poor quality. I would recommend other titles than this one for the beginner at chess.
