Too much code for an audiobook

It's hard to follow when he reads the code. If you don't write it on the computer as you listen to this record (clicking stop every 5 sec), you could be also easily lost in the verbal language of the code. It's a short résumé of the javascript language, but I think it could have been better if it had include less code and more explanation.
