Save your time and money

What would have made Acupuncture for Beginners: Teach Me Everything I Need to Know About Acupuncture in 30 Minutes better?

If the narrator had any inflection or enthusiasm in his voice. Truly the worst I have ever heard.

What could 30 Minute Reads have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

This seems to have been written in the style of a middle school student who has to write an essay and use 500 words. Repetitive to say the least. Very small amount of information, said in several different ways. Save yourself the effort, the writer and narrator did.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

In every possible way.

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

I was able to get a refund.

Any additional comments?

I love Audible and listen to many books a month. This should not have even been offered.

Don't waste your time

Stick a needle in me, I'm done

As a man who is not a fan or needles I have always felt that acupuncture was more like witch doctory than actual medicine. But, I have several friends who have been going to acupuncture regularly and swear by it. So, rather than getting my feet wet by jumping in over my head, I decided to look up what all the fuss was about, and this short little book helped allay my fears. . .er, concerns. It is very informative, and when I finished I did feel better about the prospect of going to an acupuncturist. Clinger narrates smoothly and kept me calm when hearing about all the jabbing. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.


If this review helped, please press the YES below. Thank you immensely!!!

It didn't tell me anything more than normal common sense

I was hoping to learn more about the principles of acupuncture and the book just covered things like make sure you have a "clean environment"

Reparative and monotoned

If this was an assignment, for a seventh grader to write and talk about acupuncture for 30 minutes, I would give him a failing grade. The book says that it originated in Europe, then says it originated in China. Long introduction about what you will hear. A great deal of vague things it may help, but no description as to why or how. Wasted $15 and wasted 30 minutes.

Just no

I hate to say it but this was the most poorly written and poorly narrated audiobook I’ve even encountered. I’m truly confused as to how it made it onto Audible.

A little too basic

Was hoping to get some basic mechanisms on how it works. The reader made me want to perform acupuncture in my eyes.

terrible

poorly read, redundant, terrible grammar. I winced through the entire 40 torturous minutes. Don't waste your money or time on this one.

Very dull, sorry!

Not evidence based, anecdotal from what sounds like a keen convert but more the level of a school project. Does cover all aspects of being a patient, conditions it treats, pain perspective, though voice very dull unfortunately.
