Good content, extremely boring narrator

I liked the content, but the narration is so boring and mind numbing. I dont think iv ever heard a voice more boring. It sounds like a voice from the 1980s that was made by a computer dictating text. The accent and the low pitch of the voice is off-putting. I can only pay attention for 45seconds at a time before it just becomes a low drone noise in the background. Which is a shame because I find the content very interesting. I’m not sure I will get through this. Please release with a different narrator! One with a different accent, cadence and pitch.

No accompanying PDF

This audiobook does not come with an accompanying PDF like other practical books. This leaves the listener to their imagination without any tables or figures to assist with understanding and applying the topics discussed. If you don't have the print book, you won't benefit from buying the audiobook alone.

if they include the PDF later on, this book would be rated 5 stars.
