Both the writing and narration of this primer have more than enough personality to overcome the familiar formula that guides the Dummies series. This author knows how to simplify his ideas without condescending and without leaving out anything important. Brett Barry has an enjoyable "family documentary" voice and adds just enough of himself to the reading for listeners to know there's a real person speaking to them. His commitment to helping listeners benefit from these lessons is apparent start to finish. A written table of contents would help listeners know what to expect overall and help them search for segments they want to hear again. T.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
