I fee ripped off...

The real book is 300+ pages. Why would they charge the same price for this abridged audio which probably equates to 50 pages of information?

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.
