Move descriptions are imprecise

Good book but it doesn't always mention move numbers when discussing variations so it's unclear what is the board state exactly.

Bad narration. Good material.

Narrator reads this like a regular novel , likely has no knowledge of chess himself. I do not recommend the purchase of this audio book.
