I saw a lecture by Dr. Orloff, and would have enjoyed this book much more if it had a different reader. The reader sounds so aggressive reading, which is so unlike Dr. Orloff's speech. The reader's voice is much more suited to reading mystery books. I would suggest a paper copy of the book, because the information is very good.

I love the message this book put forth, but I was not happy with the reader's presentation of the message. IMHO she somehow managed to make the author seem pompous and arrogant. I've listened to other audio books read by this particular reader (novels) and have enjoyed them tremendously, but this one just didn't come across well for me. In a non-fiction audio book I think it's important to have a reader take on the persona of an author more so than in a fiction book; after all, it's the author's voice that needs to come across and not a fictional character. As I listened to this book I kept having to remind myself that it was not being read by the author. PS -- I just ended up ordering a paper copy of the book because I really liked it and wanted my husband to read it. I knew that if he tried to listen to it, he wouldn't be able to get past the reader's interpretation.
