We're in the process of getting it onto Audible and plan to get it onto iTunes as well to get it in front of the widest audience as possible.

I'm not sure at this point. The final version of the ebook is not quite finished. When it's done we'll do a deep comparison between the posts we've previously recorded and the posts included in the ebook. If the post hasn't been changed for the ebook and the flow of the reading isn't broken by us...(read more)

Actually I don't now that I've had a closer look at the articles to be included. I was worried about posts like [Entangled Photons](http://lesswrong.com/lw/q0/entangled_photons/) but the editors putting it together have done a really good job of selecting posts, arranging them in a coherent manner,...(read more)

It will be on Audible, I'm not sure if they have restrictions on where it will be available globally. Do you know more Metus? This will be the first book that we've personally put onto Audible. We certainly want it to be available globally. It will also be available on iTunes.

>Can you give us an idea of the sort of listener numbers you've seen for your current Sequence audio offerings?

So far we've relied on people coming to the sequences we've produced via the LessWrong site. As an example of numbers we've had about 100 people purchase the "How to Actually Change Your...(read more)

> 1. How much of this audiobook will double up (in terms of both content and new voice acting)?

About 1/3 is covered by posts that have been read in previous sequences.

> 2. Will currently unavailable individual sequences be available for purchase separately at some stage?

If this project includ...(read more)

FYI. Any purchase of an audiobook will come with the corresponding ebook version.
