5 out of 5 stars

5 stars and more.

Though I often provide a curt review by selecting a number of stars, seldomly do I provide written comments.

Purchase this book, listen to it, follow the author's suggestions, practice, listen to the book again and you'll be an audiobook narrator. This book is a fantastic reference for creating an audiobook. Don't let the shortness of the book fool you-It is devoid of fluff and filler. The book is detailed and specific. Though I thought the narration slightly blasé and could have given the narrator three or four stars, the material in the book, the book's organization, presentation, and value merit one to desire to award more than the permissible five star maximum. Overall the book merits more than five stars.

Just what I wanted.

I'm about to do my first audio book and I found this book at the perfect time.

This is a short content filled book that gives you the information you need and no more.

The author has the background and knows what he's talking about

Well worth the investment and I recommend this if you are going to get into Audio or podcasting.
