    Interesting facts, but the narrator's lacking

    What didn’t you like about Nick Hahn’s performance?

    His pronunciation of scientific words should have been researched! It's a little jarring to hear words pronounced as they are spelled as opposed to how they should be said! I have a bit more of a science background than average, and the mispronunciations spread misunderstanding and the belief that science is hard! (It's not)

    Any additional comments?

    It's a fun book.

    ANOTHER book ruined by bad narration

    I will never again buy an audiobook produced by Audible. This is the second one I've purchased with a distractingly terrible narrator. His frequent mispronunciations, awkward cadence, and obvious lack of interest in the material made it unlistenable. This did not sound like a professionally produced audiobook. I will be requesting a credit refund (again).

    Good content. Problem with narration.

    There is a problem with the audio encoding I think. Speed the narration up to at least 1.3x to be tolerable.

    Narration is abysmal.

    Couldn't give the content it's due, I'm afraid. The narration was so poor and jarringly without cadence that I gave up during the first chapter.

    Very interesting, but almost un-listenable

    What other book might you compare Dr. Joe & What You Didn't Know to and why?

    The "Einstein" series by Robert L. Wolke. Very similar in scope, Wolke's books discuss chemistry as it applies to food, the kitchen, various aspects of every day life.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Nick Hahn’s performances?

    Definitely not. His pronunciation of chemicals and other technical terms is beyond absurd and almost indecipherable at points. Obviously no one bothered to so much as do a Wikipedia search for the pronunciation of things like dichloromethane, much less speak to anyone with a technical background.
