The author addresses the subject based, mostly if not entirely, on being a high-value narrator who mostly or always works in a professional studio with other people serving producer & etc roles. Effectively, this book speaks better to being a voice-over than a modern-day audiobook narrator .... which is surprising given the apparent year of publication.
These days most audiobook narrators work from home, with their own purchased and operated gear, producing / engineering / editing the recordings themselves, and typically getting paid less than the author can command. Preparing John or Jane Q Public with the mindset to prepare-for and pursue audiobook narration work in a section of the industry that is extremely competitive, where Nobodys aren't likely to make it in, is at best unrealistic if to say outright wrong.
This is not to say that her information is not valuable or usable -- quite the opposite -- only that the reader needs to listen objectively and interpret what she says and how it applies to the work-from-home narrator *AND* seek additional information sources that provide the necessary information (gear to purchase, how to operate, setting-up home recording spaces, personal business management, etc) wholly preparing someone to be a successful work-from-home narrator.
