Useful for all addictions

I used the lessons here to deal with bad habits I've been trying to get over for years. By going through the steps in this book you will learn to get rid of any ‘addiction’ and a bad habit is an ‘addiction’. You will also get a history that is taught at all AA/NA meetings. It is important to understand the history of how we came to the current ways to free people from addictions of any kind. Just remember that this is not an easy path as your addictions will fight back to keep where they are.

I wish I could have listened, but the voice!!!

What disappointed you about Freedom from Addiction?

I was shocked when the reader's voice began--nasal, too loud, awkwardly read. The material was clearly powerful, but there was no way I could listen to that for more than a few minutes. I feel so ripped off--honestly, couldn't someone have advised them? Really--it's the quality of the recording that will help make this medium work; I don't know whose voice that was

Would you be willing to try another book from David Simon and Deepak Chopra ? Why or why not?

Not if the same voice is on it as on the start of this one--was that David Simon or Alfred Gingold?

Would you be willing to try another one of Alfred Gingold’s performances?

Possibly...but I don't know. I've heard him elsewhere--was that him or David Simon at the start of the recording?

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

YES--the text...which I'm now going to have to go buy to read after wasting my credit on this here.

Any additional comments?

DISAPPOINTED...wish I'd never bought it here. What poor quality control.

and fyi, I am a voice and performance teacher and do voice overs myself. I don't expect my students to sound like pros, but when I'm paying for something that is internationally advertised, I expect quality. If it wasn't the voice, then it was audible's media. Either way, a big disappointment.
