Best information but poor presentation

The information in the book is by far the best on the subject of Airbnb there is on the market at this time in my opinion and I have read them all. I did not give 5 stars because the speaker was hard to follow and the sound quality at times was mediocre at best. It was like being taught how to perform an intense surgery by the eyedrop guy, as the speaker is extremely monotone. Because of this, I've had to replay the book 4 times in order to catch the necessary information, as his voice is painfully boring and easy to get distracted from. I hope you find this helpful and good luck in your endeavors.

Great content - Awful Narrator

The content of this book is great! It covers all aspects of running an airbnb in a very through way. It is not superficial at all and if you are looking to run an airbnb, this is the book for you!
HOWEVER - the narrator is TERRIBLE... He is very awkward and robotic: it’s like listening to the gps lady read an entire book. Just when you think a sentence ends, the narrator pauses, the goes on... it is robotic and unnatural and distracting making it difficult to understand at times. Looking back, I wish I had bought the hardcopy instead...

not ideal for audio

this book is not ideal for the audio format. it is full of links and beneficial information which can be accessed through the website which is referenced multiple times throughout the book. however care could have been taken to make the audio format more engaging.

Must Read/Listen

I very much enjoyed this book. I have probably listened through it 10x and each and every time I find something different to apply to my STR. I did listen at 1.2 speed so the narrator did not bother me at all. I have purchased several other STR books and none were even close to this one. I have recommended to several of my friends.

Lots of good stuff here!

I have been an Airbnb Super host for about three years and because of that wasn’t sure I could make improvements, but I found more tidbits here to prove I was wrong!

Info was thorough, inventive, easy to emolument and trustworthy. As I listened on Audible I would catch a great idea, pause and flip over to my listing to make the changes right then and there! Who would have thought to take a screen shot of a great review and then add it to your listing photos? Brilliant!

Some have made remarks about the poor performance but I found it perfect when the speed was set at 1.1x.

I think this book would be a great gift to anyone thinking about setting up a short term rental. I thot I was good before, but I have no doubt I can make improvements that will help me hold on to my Super Host, always 5 star review status. Nice job, Daniel, and thanks!

Just use the accelerator

Lighten up guys. The narrator is fine if you listen @ 1.5x. You can get through the book quicker as well.

Jam Packed with Great Info

This book was filled with really insightful information and gave me a lot of actionable items to try with my listing right away. I have gone through it once but will need to go through it again and take lots of notes to better implement all the gems that are in here.

I CANNOT get past the narrator...will update

I CANNOT get past the robotic narration! I thought when folks complained about the narrator for other books it was an exaggeration. It does make a difference in enjoying the book. The sad part is that the author read the intro...and he was awesome. Dude, why didnt you take the time to narrate it yourself?!?!? I will definitely take you up on your offer for a refund. Sad, because the content seems good.

Out of all of the a short term rental books I have listened to this one was by far the best.
