I was afraid it would be a bit of an overdramatization, but this was a super book! the author writes to the point, and the narrator does a splendid job. Really enjoyed and can recommend. The subject matter is heavy, but it doesn't take any effort to get gripped by it!

Minimalism, with a load of same old cliches

love the part that discussed the minimalism on projects, and the ruthless cutting down of projects. although a lot of examples feel chosen exactly to motivate a certain narrow view.

I thought the beginning was a little slow, but it picks up significantly. As with previous James Clavell books, it takes a while to really get to know all the characters. The story runs deep, the characters are lively, and theltural references give an amazing insight into the place.

fantastically read!

while the quality of the reading might result in sleepy eyes, I thought it was a great read, and the confusion permeating the book comes through

Loved it, I think psychedelics offer a significant leap forward in our understanding, and this no nonsense book puts a good case for this point

Fantastic story!

Loved the book, and thought it was of similar quality to shogun. Perhaps I am biased towards Japanese stories.

I had difficulty getting into the book, coming straight from shogun, however it is still a brilliant listen!

I thought the ending was a lot more 'own interpretation of current data'. The beginning was very strong and intriguing!
