No Chapters

good information but there is no Chapters so it makes it hard for when you have to go back and relisten to chapters which to get the most of the book you do.

Horrible narration

The book sounds like an automatic voice message. It is thoroughly underwhelming and painful to listen to.

Being a lawyer

this book is so boring from the beginning to the middle part after that it gets better. At first it let's you know about school and jobs.

Good book, bad for audio

This book works much better as a physical copy, as the cases need to be referenced and skipping about is tiresome.
