If you are stuck in a car for an hour each day and you want to listen
to such an audio book, then it's a 0,1 proposition.  You could at
least learn about object-oriented thinking, and qualitative features
of the language.  It would be a good challenge to attempt to make
programming understandable, to a degree, through an audiobook.
