Would you consider the audio edition of DIY Home Remedies to be better than the print version?
I have not read the print version.
Would you be willing to try another book from DIY Made Easy? Why or why not?
Possibly. The book and the content was informative, but the title is misleading. It would have been better to title this book: DIY First Aid at Home or DIY How to Handle Home Emergencies. It was only in the last chapter of the book that there were any of what I would consider home remedies. Most of the content was first aid tips that I learned in sixth grade health class. I would be more careful about what I was choosing if I decided to read another by this author.
The narrator did a great job with the material. I would imagine this type of book is difficult to narrate as there is not the inherent ability to change the tempo with action or dramatic moments. I thought the pacing was right where it needed to be: it was fast enough to keep you interested, but still allowed enough time for the material to be 'digested'. Since this is more like a textbook, speaking too quickly would have made it hard to absorb. The narrator rode that line with ease.
What does Kurt Feldner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I tend to be an auditory learner, so the narration by Kurt enabled me to listen and absorb more of the text than I would have if I had read it on my own. I most likely would have skipped or skimmed through chapters in the print book, but I listened to the entire thing this way.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not really that kind of book :)
Would you listen to DIY Home Remedies again? Why?
Possibly. It's a good resource for handling everyday things that come up.
What did you like best about this story?
The "story" was very informative. I don't think I would sit down and read this book, but listening to it in the car is best. The narrator did a great job turning a plain, informative book into something I could learn from.
Have you listened to any of Kurt Feldner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I've listened to other books from Kurt Feldner, and the content of this book was much different the last I listened to. I've enjoyed listening to both, so I suppose that attributes to the versatility of Kurt Feldner's narration. As mentioned above, he did a great job turning a plain, informative book into something I could learn from.
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
I've learned there's pretty much a home remedy for almost every common ailment.
