Excellent summary!

I found this version very helpful, and expertly summarised, to detail the most important factors of the book, which are most relevant. The Narrator was also easy on the ear; a most important factor for me when listening to audio books, in particular. I strongly recommend this version, if you're wanting a brief, concise, intelligent, easy to understand, and enjoyable audio book experience. This version is appropriatey 30 minutes in duration.

Would be interested in the full book

This summary was interesting enough to make me want to listen to the full book, but thank God it was short because the narrator was terrible, like listening to a robot. It only made three stars because the subject matter did at least make me want to read the full book and I suppose that was its purpose. Will be checking out the narrator before I listen to the full book though
