"Haven't finished the book, but just have to say that Martyn Swain does an amazing job reading this. Heidegger is inherently difficult to understand, because his concepts are deep and require a lot of thought. But I find that Heidegger's way of expressing himself often adds to the burden. Swain reads in a way that makes the structure of each sentence clear, leaving the reader free to think about Heidegger's meaning rather than his sentence structure.

Before hearing this performance of B&T, I could not imagine how it would be possible to listen to such a dense text in a recording. But I'm finding that, to my amazement, that it's actually easier to follow the recording than the printed text. Mr Swain's reading brings out the structure of Heidegger's ideas with beautiful clarity. Add to that, that Mr Swain pronounces German and Greek fluently, and I think he deserves some kind of a medal. Bravo!”

Anonymous Audible review

“Martyn has recorded many audiobooks for Ukemi Audiobooks, ranging from Freud and Heidegger to Baron de Montesquieu and Tacitus. To all he brings clarity and authority, and his fluency in, and knowledge of, a variety of languages (so names and places always sound as they should!). What's more, his facility with studio practice and editing means that his recordings come through clean and prompt!”

“I worked with Martyn on an animated TV commercial for France-Amerique Magazine, and I couldn't be more happy with our collaboration. He did an exceptional job recording the voices of several characters in the piece. My colleagues and I would listen to various takes of the script that he would send us and we would just crack up... that's how smart and funny his performances were. He has tremendous range, and his experience and intelligence mean that he is very creative in his interpretations. He's also very precise with giving and taking notes, and he was always professional and would deliver exactly when he said he would. You're a really extraordinary talent Martyn, I hope to work with you again soon!”
