I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I’m very glad I read it!

Superb book. Much better than the chimp paradox author book. Not rocket science. Just- very much about honesty, about reframing and about bringing your kids up to be people you’d like to be around.

Not quite what was described

I like this. But... the predominant message appeared to be how to help others including children to control their emotions.
Not quite what was described in the blurb. Certainly don’t feel like it was particularly helpful.
Also- the narrator wasn’t superb. Just quite dull, felt like he was reading a dry tome.

Required reading for bassists!

Been playing for nearly 25 years. First book that’s made be bolt upright, and change my attitude to music.
Loved the narration, the score, and even though some of it got a little new-agey sometimes, the core of it was undeniably gold, even to an atheist!
Superb book, one of the rarities I’ll listen to again

Super and thought provoking

I thought this would be a pot shot at the ridiculous job titles we have. ‘Chief evangelist’, ‘web stuff do-er’ etc.
It was so much more. Thoroughly recommend this to anyone intrigued by capitalism and why the world works, if you’re prepared to be challenged.

At last!

The pairing of Angus Watson and Sean Barrett is superb. This whole series has been a pure joy, and now... maybe start again at the beginning.

If you love sci-fi, ready player one or the eighties, just get it. Superb. Even better than ready player one, and that was epic!

Even better than the first!

Loved the first one - but Brian and co did it again. And special shout out to the supporting cast, who also played blinders!

Both Giles and Philip deliver another cracker. First time in a while I was a bit gutted this is a ‘one shot’. Much as I love a conclusion to a tale...I didn’t want to leave these characters

Excellent and atmospheric

Honestly, at first I wasn’t sure because it’s so short, but I took a punt on this after thinking ‘what the hell’.
Loved it. Especially good following Lukas the Trickster!!
