Great book but

Horrible reading style. The voice is ok but very choppy reading, pauses where it doesn't make sense. As if there's a comma every two words. Only just stared and I really can't continue listening to this. Such a shame :(

terrible narrator - great philosophy

The narrator is literally the worst. He took what could have been exciting and make it sleep inducing.

Not bad, but think about an alternative

While the book itself is a fascinating insight into the mind of a great man, the narrators delivery is far too soft to be able to listen to it anywhere other than a very quiet place; if you intend to listen in the car, choose a different performance.
