Did you like the first one? You’ll love this

This is a book I’ve been waiting for since I first discovered the first one, I’ve listened to the original as a reference for D&D dozens of times while at work to prep for games. The last readers voice was a perfect learning tone but now with this book… do you like learning from the show, “How it’s Made”? Well this narrator has essentially the identical tone as the narrator on that show, you’ll hear it don’t worry - perfect 12/10*

Great Info, but Inconsistent Reading

Love this series of books by Keith Ammann. Extremely useful for both DMs and players alike. For this particular audiobook however, I would characterize the audio performance as inconsistent, both in tone of voice as well as possibly actor. Some portions of the reading sounded so different as to make me wonder if someone else had made an unannounced guest appearance, and at times, there’s a hint of exasperation in the reader’s tone that makes it feel as though he’s just trying to get through it. Still, as a reference work essentially, it’s still very useful, and the content is interesting enough to make it an engaging listen.

Excellent stuff!

High quality, insightful content that showcases careful thought went into this book. It's presented in an understandable and interesting format and performed splendidly by the narrator, whose warm tones and calm but enthusiastic delivery is a pleasure to listen to.

A great guide for 5e combat with some minor flaws

This title is basically just more great examples of 5e monster/creature combat tactics and behavior from the first book “The Monsters Know What They’re Doing”. I am somewhat surprised that a different narrator was chosen for this second entry as the first narrator did a great job in my opinion. The narrator in this book (Jonathan Davis) does a serviceable job, but mispronounces a few words in unfortunate ways (e.g., Piscine is supposed to be pronounced similarly to Pisces but Jonathan pronounced it Pis-seen). Also there were a few confusing moments in terms of how the chapters are split up on audible. The chapter about Giff was followed by a chapter on combining different enemy types, but I was thrown off because audible basically included the combining enemy types as part of the giff chapter and I missed the transition mid chapter. This made it slightly hard to follow. Still need to finish the book and see if any other anomalies are present but it doesn’t detract too severely from the overall value of this audiobook to 5e DM’s and strategic players alike.
