Rocked my world

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The author needed to speak more clearly and slowly. Far too many technical words in the story.
Has The Art of Learning put you off other books in this genre?
Any additional comments?
The title of this book is about the art of learning, however the first two hours was about this persons experience, nothing about learning for the purpose of another person gaining learning skills.

Okay, if pedantic

I loved this book. I am the same age as Stephen Fry and didn't ever become a follower of the shows and musicals he describes being a part of. Nor do I know him apart from a few documentary type programs he has led in recent years. I loved his honesty about himself, his brilliance in describing what was in a time now gone. Thank you Stephen Fry for being you.
