Maybe on Paper, this is not an Audio Book

I only got about 30 minutes into this audiobook before I decided to turn back. Besides being read like a textbook, it turns out it is. This is probably a great book to read on paper, in your own voice. The reading here is dry and pedantic (read no flourish or tone). I stopped at the 30 minute mark because the author states something along the lines of "this is not a book you just read and think about, it is designed as a reference book to come back to." Well, that's kinda tough for an audio book.

Way to boring to listen to, not designed to be an audiobook. Maybe buy the print version.
