This will put you to sleep

This is the worse narration I have ever heard. Alexa can narrate better, this sounds like a software computer voice and it will make you lose concentration and interest. I wish I could get my money back. I promise you I didn’t make it pass the first 10 boring minutes. If you want to learn and they can’t deliver then it’s a scam. This is terrible why waste your money in a competing capitalist market? 🤷🏼‍♂️

Horrible.

I would literally rather be beaten with a stick every day until I die than to have to listen to this again. Couldn’t make it past chapter 2.

Perhaps..

Perhaps it is better in print.

1/ it’s like listening to paint dry
2/ web link is invalid

Not tempted by this author further - glad it was free.

Dry narration outdated techniq and racist maxism.

This not worth your time. It is regressive in its nature, and narrow in its practice. The work has a underlying maxism to it process.

Click bait

if I could give 0 I would. should have expected as much for about 2 hours. Read like a book report.
1. website to diagrams is to a landing page to another book.
2. ideas are vague and no concrete implementation. except to know to look for other sources to learn how to use methods discussed.
3. 2 stars for performance for no speaking errors , but reading is dry

Pretty slow and boring.....

Book is very slow and fact based, still an interesting read but hard to listen and focus on long periods of the book. Still great information though!

Kept pausing

It is a very informative book May need to be re-recorded. Pause through most of the chapter, especially throughout the transition of chapters which made it difficult to listen.
