Why not use a professional narrator?

As an Audiobook this book fails, not due to the content (that is great) but due to the very poor narration by its author. It's very hard to stay with the narrator as it feels like a race to see who falls asleep first, the narrator or the listener. It's a real shame that a professional narrator wasn't used to bring the great content across.

I've never read a Ben Carson book before, but saw this book featured on C-SPAN's book TV. I thought I would give it a shot. I was a little disappointed. It was Ben Carson retelling many of his experiences, which are no doubt interesting, but it seemed a stretch to talk about them in light of risk. If you want to read about the author's experiences, this is a good book, but if you want a book talking about risk, look elsewere.
