I loved this title, it provides a very informative and objective review of the structure of society it's origins, it's follys - in parts it is oddly depressing, and makes you realise how trapped we are. In other parts it makes you realise how lucky we are to be alive at this time in history.

A frightening review of the UK justice system.

This title is funny in places, but largely it had me checking for legal expenses cover on my home insurance, and made me worry a lot. I think everyone who cares about justice and fairness should read this book - and wisen up to the issues that it reveals.

Profound

This books is not easy to follow, I found myself rewinding several times - but then the subject matter is complex. I think the book would have been better read if it was read by the author. Overall I found it hard work, but enjoyable.

Pretty scary

This title provides a pretty scary view of the future - there are certainly a lot of changes that our societies are going to have to face should AI become the reality that it is likely to become. This book provides a profound view into the foreseeable future with respect to works and lives of the ordinary person.

Insightful

This is a insightful review of how the economy works, which is explained in an easy to understand way. Although the author has intended for the book to be read by young people, I think everyone who is a layman economist would benefit from reading it.

Excellent view into the future

Indeed very frightening review of current and future technologies and what types of crime will emerge from its use. I disagreed however, with some aspects of the authors belief with respect to software production - clearly the author doesn't really understand how complicated software really is.... but this should not distract from how good this book is, and it is well worth a listen for anyone who works with information systems.

Classic well presented.

This book has completely changed my attitude to sleep - it presents a number of fascinating facts and new research into the science of sleep and debunks many myths associated with sleep. I was particularly alarmed by the facts associated with sleep and alcohol.

This book provides a frank and honest look at drug prohibition by describing its origins - it contains several back stories of historical characters involved in the drug war. The audio performance is well presented.
