COMPLETELY USELESS

What disappointed you about First Things First?

The audio book seems like an abridged version of an abridged version of an abridged version. It is extremely short, gives no actual details, and essentially covers only the introduction of each concept but never gets into the details of them. I could make the same audio book and charge you half the price and all I would have to do is read the Intro of the book, and the first few pages of each concept. Easy 5 bucks.

Abridged version

While I had hoped to find an unabridged audiobook of First Things, this edition is a solid second. It captures the essence of the book and a little more. This is a good choice if you don't need to "immersion read" the original.
