After 2.5 hours of introduction, which was no better than a sorry apology for evolution, I gave up.

Good, then tedious

It started well, but then got tedious. I liked the small size of the chapters, but stopped at Chapter 25, of 268.

So good I bought copies for each of my family

Masses of information with minimal fluff . A long book but all of it is good.

Tedious. Hard to find the grain amongst the chaff.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. It is padded with multiple repetitions, multiple repetitive adjectives, and multiple repetitive examples.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Cut the repetition. Cut the repetition. Cut the repetition. Cut the repetition. Cut the repetition. Cut the repetition. Cut the repetition. Cut the repetition. Cut the repetition.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes. Equally slow.

Could you see The E-Myth Revisited being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No.

Any additional comments?

There are some good ideas. For which I happily pay double for the non-bloated version.

Playback glitchy. Waffly at times. Narration volume varied with accent - sometimes too soft to hear in the car.
