I have a type of aural disability. My ears have been trained to lock onto human voices and they create echoes. The neutral computer generated voice means I can listen to this with ease. It's very clear and it's reintroducing this book to my memory as I suffer frequent minor strokes that mean I have to refresh my brain all the time.

holds up

This title holds up, definitely can find a way to utilize some of the teachings in this book in real life endeavors. Without the bloodshed. But dynamic book, read fantastically.

Wow!
