Narrator is distracting

I found the woman's voice to be a bit distracting. I can't listen to much more beyond the first chapter.

Good book, poorly performed

The content of the book is good and is helpful, but the narrator did a poor job. Very annoying performance. I'll have to finish the hard copy of the book--had all I could take of the narrator.
