Stop with the Musical Backgrouind!


I am having trouble getting through the book because as with so many audiobooks of the self-development variety, the author insists on subjecting us to a corny musical background and corny musical passages in between segments that to me are maddening, music which they apparently perceive as relaxing but is simply annoying and the musical equivalent of patronizing. In this instance it is a constant schmaltzy piano which makes me feel condescended to as if I'm an old man about to die and must be soothed by my wise son Jon. Like forcing me to look at Denny's paintings while listening to a lecture. Leave the sappy music out of these books, to me it is like playing 'Frosty the Snowman' in the background.
