I liked the book a lot of interesting points. Simple and straightforward. The voice of the person was really annoying... still listened to the end though. Don't expect mellow speech that you could fall asleep to!

Not watered down Bond like in the newer films. But then again, I never thought 007 would cry... but he does... unlike the older films. I guess nothing can quite compete with a book!

It is rare to find a book of this quality. I would and will suggest this to anyone who has children.

Excellent and motivating book for people with a viewpoint other than that put forth by most of the media. It's a foreword to the election of President Trump and a prediction of the route the conservative media will take.

Great book. It's refreshing to read a book that doesn't hold back. The author definitely would be considered to be awful in our current pc climate... so it's a nice to escape to a different time and place through this book!

Very good book. Whilst the author decides to be over the top, it fits well with his persona.

I will recommend it to other people.

It's a must read for all the old minded conservatives. Open your eyes to the new way.

Was good, but wasn't as good as titles like ice station zebra from this author. A bit of a cobbled together add-on to the guns from navarone. Still good enough for a listen though.

Good first 1/3 of book... after that it gets bad

I enjoyed the first 1/3 of the book. After getting two sided and equal accounting of the possible history of man, it seems the writer lost his neutrality.

Harry Potter is not a good example of what happens to humans. The use of Harry Potter as a good example of what happens when people find their skills and hone them is what set my alarm bells ringing.

At this point, sadly I found the quality of the information sources and neutrality of the discussion went downhill. A simple example is that while stating that you can't measure the success of the human race by the number of offspring, as quality of life is probably adversely affected, the author does not see fit to do the same for women who are, in this book, clearly measured by the standard "have they made it in business" yardstick.

Amazing and makes sense where Orwell got his insights for his book "Animal Farm". Would recommend to anyone and everyone. In short, the media wasn't any better then or now...

Great book, from an amazing celebrity. Alan documents his interesting life, proving again that he has had the last laugh!
