Let me firstly say, the first book in this series, is excellent balanced and informative. This book, in my opinion, is a rant, and a very drawn out deep criticism of the right wing media. And I believe a holy one sided agrument. I expected a much more balanced view. And I hoped in someway, this book would highlight, some of the very serious problems in our justice system. My interpretation was in each chapter, there is severe criticism of the right wing media and very little on anything else. Fake news comes from all sides of the politically divided media.

Great book, great listen. I must pay homage to the humble genius, Louise Theroux. Louis has a personable side that certainly promotes intrest. And this skill, grips the listeners attention. Unlike many audiobooks, I listened to in the past. Louis ability to expose his personal life, along with his professional life, with all its ups and downs. Gives the listeners, trust to not judge and the respect, to share, his life with them. Which is very rare in many biographical stories.

Tiedious and bland

I enjoyed Bonce and Black Box Thinking. Only Rebel Ideas was a bad idea. The stories are not great examples are weak. A new concept may be needed, there are so many books that use stories to support there theories. And then, attempt to sell it as, a new found philosophy, for all of us to live by. A narrative is a narrative and it can fit either way.

A story, like a good chat with a mate.

The Prisoners Geography, was a good insightful read. However, this book, is elitist in undertone. The comments by the author on current America is disrespectful. Most of the information provided in the book is common knowledge and old news. The volume is very low and the narrator becomes anoying after a while. Overall pretty boring.

A true account from a noble and humble man. A story well told of a difficult subject. (Death) Fascinating at times, sad at times. But always great throughout. Enjoy the journey told from Dr Richard Shepard, because it will be like no other. Excellent
