Shorter but not easier to understand.

This is certainly a strongly edited version of book, but not enough time has gone into making it easier to understand. Also the narrator clearly does not understand the text so reads it poorly.

Completly unsupported platitudes.

I was looking for a genuine expert to offer well reasoned and sound advice on bringing up children. This book was definitely not it.

All it really does is argue that any sort of punishment of the child's behaviours will mean your child will have a terrible life. As such you should always "choose love". This is a defensible position, but there is no offer of evidence or logic, just bland assertions and platitudes. I suspect that it only appeals to parents who instinctively already have a guilt complex and are looking for reassurance.

Really disappointing.

Great to hear Sir Bobby Rodson talk about his life with such passion, but it is all too brief and abridged version of his biography.

Banal, obvious and poorly researhed

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It needed an over arching idea or insight. It was just a list of uninteresting opinions. I didn't get it

a similar subject, but a different author

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Narrator was fine

What character would you cut from The Nature of the Future?

Hard to listen to content because of voice over

The content of this book is actually quite interesting, but the voice over honestly sounds as if Siri is reading it. It ruined my experience of the book.
