The book is excellent; the narrator, Michael Prichard, is lacking.

As the volume of his voice drops in the conclusion to each of the book's sections -- in which all the previous data and analysis is synthesized into important "take away" points -- Mr. Prichard adopts a conspiratorial tone that frustrates the listener's attempts to comprehend.

I listened while I drove, and one hand was forever on the volume button.
