The forceful punishment of children described in this book is Illegal. Horrendous right wing opinions. Hated it.

Original and informative

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, typical of "The Great Courses"....this is brilliant.

Well spoken, easy to understand.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Just very well researched and read.

What would have made The Art of Storytelling: From Parents to Professionals better?

This is the MOST irritating voice on audible.com. If she said "Nair-ator" one more time, or read "Little Red Riding Hood' again - I was about to run off into the woods myself. I would have returned this book, except it took so long to listen to her long boring repetition.

Would you ever listen to anything by The Great Courses again?

The Great Courses are normally BRILLIANT! This one was a BIG let-down

Would you be willing to try another one of Professor Hannah B. Harvey’s performances?

NEVER.....ah that hideous voice.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Nothing original. Irritating voice. HORRENDOUS southern accent sounded like she hadn't finished high school.

Any additional comments?

Very disappointed. I would have returned this if I could have. Not nearly the normal standard of "The Great Courses"

If you could sum up Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl in three words, what would they be?

INCREDIBLE - BRILLIANT - SAD

What did you like best about this story?

It is true

Which scene did you most enjoy?

None of the scenes are enjoyable - that's the point - to show you REALITY.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

OH YES! And I've listened twice.

Any additional comments?

Should be MANDATORY listening (and I believe it's suitable for) every high school child in the USA!

Remarkable..one of the greatest texts of all time

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

MAKE IT CLEAR - this is not a book - it's simply someone reviewing it. And...in a hideous electronic voice.

What didn’t you like about Michael Gilboe’s performance?

I don't think it is even a person - hideous electronic voice. Not a book. Only a very brief and short review.

What character would you cut from The Sociopath Next Door: by Martha Stout?

Not applicable. This is not a book...it's only a brief book review, read very badly.

Any additional comments?

Buy the REAL BOOK!!!! This is not a book only a badly written electronically read review.

What would have made Spiritual Cleanse better?

Really annoying "double" sound. Plenty of better products out there.

What will your next listen be?

Nothing by this guy that's for sure!

Would you be willing to try another one of Joel Thielke’s performances?

NO...irritating voice, irritating sound. Didn't get a thing from it at all...Much better products out there.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Such annoying sound it stressed me more than I started. The "double" you can't hear it thing is CRAZY...Hated it.
