Need Experience To fully understand

What was most disappointing about Pema Chodron’s story?

I found it to be a bit over my head, I wasn't really able to just relax and listen, it required a great deal of thought for someone who is inexperienced.

What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?

Not a professional recording, there is someone in the background that you can hear clearing their throat throughout the whole thing and it is very off-putting and unprofessional. I really wish I could get my money back.
