Worth it, even though it needs pro recording!
Real help is available
Could relate on many levels. Applies to many situations. Logically organized. Lets you know what to expect from a meeting, as well as how to apply help to your own situation, no matter what it is. Covers a lot of ground.
ANYBODY that is a professional book narrator in a real studio!!! Think Barbara Rosenblatt would be great.
I listened for hours, and went back to listen to parts of it over again. This is the kind of book that you can listen to multiple times and get a lot more info from at each hearing.
I understand that they wanted to use "real people/members," so that it would be more relatable and honest. But frankly, the recording quality suffers enormously, and many of the narrators are too stilted. I ended up downloading it again at the highest recording quality and it still took me a long time to be able to stop wincing at the poor audio quality. It is frankly sometimes difficult to hear, especially since I like to listen while driving. I am spoiled by the quality of professional audiobooks, I realize. But this is one area where I feel that Al-Anon needs to break down and turn something this important over to professional book narrators and sound engineers. Still, the material itself is invaluable, and I will be listening to this again and again. I hope others will also petition Al-Anon to re-do this professionally, and to release more Conference Approved Literature in audio formats. They are sorely behind the times in making material available in electronic and audio formats.
Terrible audio quality
