This audiobook is a paradox.
This book is absolutely the best book that I have read (listened to) in a very long while. The content is relevant and helpful. Peter does an excellent job describing consulting contexts and challenges for all to grasp and learn. The wordsmithing is exquisitely well crafted.
On the other hand, the narration of this audiobook is equally but oppositely horrible. The narrator's cadence, tone, and delivery tics are very unsettling, even maddening. The whole content is delivered in short staccato-like bursts with trailing "smug-like" slurring at the end of each statements. It's very disconcerting. I would have thought a professional reader would have gotten feedback from various publisher or peers along the way in his career to correct these very unpleasant vocal habits. Seeing how much work was put in this book to represent 'flawlessness", I am perplexed on how Peter or his publisher chose this narrator for this book. I mean, the struggle to listen was such that, at times, I had to stop because my stomach was in a churn. If you can get past the narrator's vocal spasms, as I struggled to do for 9 hours, the book (audiobook) itself is truly a "go-to" reference guide.
Probably shouldn’t rate the title because I couldn’t listen. The smugness of the narrator ruined it for me and I gave up a few minutes in. Holy heck please re-record this as I’m interested in the content but cannot listen.
Not what i was expecting. The book needs to be re-titled to display relevance to consulting to corporations rather then general consulting. I mean, maybe the book went into general consulting at some point.......i dont know..........the narrator was making this book so boring. First time i ever fell asleep on a airplane. I got into about 3 hours of it total before drifting off.
