Hello,
Thanks for getting back to me about this.
I have re-recorded this Chapter, amplified it, but did not use noise reduction.
Below is my re-recording of Chapter 1:

I look forward to hearing back from you.
Kind regards,
Chad
PL notes for Chapter 1:

@2:04-2:10 there is a cough, click and a repeat which I think you meant to edit out "more leisure to devote to thought..."
@2:49 long pause either side of the word "Anatolian coast" which is mispronounced. I don't usually point out pronunciation irregularities but this is a historical and geographical book, people need to know the region we are talking about. It is "AN-A-TOL-EE-AN" pretty much the way it looks - just watch the order of the consonants.
@3:38 repeat of the word "adjustment/Adjustments"
@4:29 stumble and repeat "contributed enormously to the development of individuality and intelligence"
@5:48 wrong word and then correction "clearest/earliest" (text has earliest)
@6:06 repeat of "below" with a loud cough between repeats.
@6:16 wrong word and repeat " and grape/grapes" (either would have been fine, but not both please.)
@6:40 repeated phrase "the mountaineer gave his chief attention"
@7:21 wrong word and then correction "dry tricky/prickly food"
@8:35 repeated phrase with correction "and everywhere they were the ornament"
@8:55 repeated word "moderate/moderately"
@9:01 wrong word then correction "exit" to "exist"
@9:11 repeated corrected phrase "turning from farming and grazing to materials/minerals"
@10:12 repeated word "Thracian" (the second pronunciation would be my preference)
@11:02 repeated word with long pauses "inferior"
@11:48 messy sentence with stumbles and repeats "another feature of Greece which bore powerfully on character"
@12:04 stumble and repeat "by high mountains/high mountain ranges"
@12:14 repeated phrase "and the north"
@12:40 loud cough
@13:54 repeated phrase "the beauty is not sensuous inviting to eat, drink and/or sleep"
@14:05 repeated word "noblest"
@14:09 repeated phrase "naked, jagged"

Whew! It looks like a lot of notes, but most of these are cuts which you just need to take out.

As an aside, it really is quicker if you do your own editing straight after recording. It is evident from the repeats that you were aware of most of these mistakes as they occurred, so if you cut them out yourself before submitting your file for PL it is much more efficient for everyone.
Thanks for the feedback!

Kind regards,
Chad

Hi Jason. Excellent job on your corrections--thank you! :clap:

(Note to Elizabeth: Since you PL'ed Chad's Section 01 before I signed on here, I think that I'll let you review his changes--if O.K. with you. Thanks!)

Hi everyone, and Happy New Year. :D
I'd like to read Section 12, "The Age of the War Heroes Part1: Political and Economic".

Thank you
Eysiss
Do. Or do not. There is no try.
