Four stars for content, terrible to listen to
This book has good content worth 4 stars but the tone of the reader (author) is beyond terrible. I had read other reviews before buying and thought it was ridiculous that some of the reviews lowered the rating based on the quality of the reader. I was wrong! I can't begin to describe how awful the reader's tone and voice is. I would describe it as a combination of the Ben Stein character in Ferris Bueler's Day Off and the Talking Al Gore doll from a Simpsons episode that would say in a droning voice "You are hearing me talk.? I literally thought I had a defective tape adapter the first time listened to it.
There is a passage that talks about "igniting the fire within" and being childlike in the most droning, dispassionate voice you can imagine. The content just doesn?t fit and is almost lost because of the voice.
I believe the key to benefiting from self-help books is reading or listing to the program more than once. I have tried to listen to this program a second time and can't do so because the voice is so bad.

FIx the audio please
There is a terrible quality problem with the narration. It is hard to imagine but this was made on tape and is full of wow and flutter. The speed is wrong and at times it is almost unlistenable. You think they would have fixed this by now since everyone else has complained but I guess they don't read the reviews or care. Because of this I can't form a very high opinion, I think there is good content on this but I will have to buy the book or the CD.
