Could not make it through

The voice reading the book is robotic, if all audiobooks were like this I won't ever buy another. What a waste of money!

Insightful content. However the reader sounds mechanical

Greta descriptions of how the “happy neurochemicals” affect our everyday behavior. And also the unhappy chemicals (eg cortisol) and the constant unconscious grappling between the two. The only downside to this book was the performance; the pace is too slow and the reader sounds like a slow robotic voice over. the only way to make it tolerable so that it matches human conversation is to bump it at 1.25 speed. This makes the reader sound even more like Siri But the content is so engaging you get used to it.

This is read by a machine - again

So far two audiobooks I bought were read by one very prolific "Amanda Carlin" who reads an awful lot like a rather unimpressive text-to-speech engine. I pay extra to get an audiobook to get the sensibility of a human reader, not the flatness of a machine. I could not get very far in the book as the whole thing was so grating.

The 3 things I loved

This audiobook did 3 things that I love.

first, it gave descriptive stories and examples to relate to

second, technical terminology is used within the details

third, references! other books and people

the cherry on top, the narrator's voice is smooth yet compelling!

highly recommend.

I love it, and I learned a lot.

I love the content of this book. It was very eye opening.
I liked the reader, but it sounded like it was in slow motion. Like she read too fast, and they had to slow down the speed.

Very technical language

I’ve just listened to a small part of the book, as the language and story is all about technical language of the hormones, and parts of the brain, and what hormones you produce when you do this or do that, and it gets boring to listen to.
