  • Steve G

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and narrator. Made for an easy listen with good inflection and emphasis. Content was exceptional.

    The book is quite famous and the author has used stories from lives of several great inventors to prove his point. Since it was my first audiobook, I liked the narration overall but do not have anything else to compare it with. It does get a bit monotonous towards the end but the matrix mentioned is quite informative and a good way to summarise all that you have learned from the book. Will suggest reading it to anyone.

    The book is great, but parts of it don't lend well to narration (especially when he gets to the quadrants - missing the graphs)... the narrator's tone/voice gets a bit draining for me.
