Extremely poor narration; not very accurate

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book. It's unfortunate that whomever was responsible for picking the narrator picked someone who has no knowledge of the subject matter. The mispronunciation of names was numerous and it seemed that the narrator was nothing more than a reader. Perhaps the audio version should have been proofed.
The 'debates' were tilted heavily towards the author's opinions and many of his predictions, particularly those that would have been transpired between when the book was published and now, were wrong. A number of the predicitions for the future, whose time has not yet come, that the author made seem like very unlikely shots in the dark. It did not seem that the author has much knowledge in the business end of the sport..

Has Trading Paint turned you off from other books in this genre?


What didn’t you like about R. C. Bray’s performance?

He came off more as just a reader. His mispronunciations of names and places indicated that he had no knowledge, whatsoever, of the subject matter and that detracted heavily from the performance.

Was Trading Paint worth the listening time?
