Great content, not so great narration
The content of this audiobook is consistent and on par with Mr. Schwager's previous two Market Wizards books. That is to say, he asks all the right questions and is able to extract all of the information and knowledge that makes his books so great. However, I was not impressed with the narrator. He starts off doing just great, but as the book begins to move forward, he seems to make an attempt during some interviews to impersonate the interviewee by using different voices, country drawls, and the like. It is very unnatural sounding and distracting. If the publisher wanted to distinguish between the Q & A (which wasn't necessary), hire two narrators. Don't force a narrator who has a good voice to do that. I would assume any listener of this book is intelligent enough to distinguish between the Q&A anyway.
