I have already listened to it twice. The best novel ever. And it is so relevant to today’s political climate where Trump uses some of techniques as the Big Bother did. Double think comes to mind first.

At first I felt it was dragging a little. But then it got so interesting that I could not take in all the info simply because I was still digesting the previous point the author made. Definitely will need to listen to this one again.

I loved this book. I have been playing chess most of my life but for some reason never really read any books about this marvellous game.
the Immortal Game has definitely sparked my attention to read and listen to more of them on the subject.

Way too much god

This book is let down by the constant references to the Bible and god. I was really looking forward to this book since I saw Peterson on YouTube but he uses arguments like "without god you would not have morals" that are seriously off-putting to me and I assume to others who don't share his outdated and many times debunked views about the divine.
I wanted to return this book but I cannot anymore, so now it will just clutter up my library and wasting a precious credit.

I have read couple of books from Jon Ronson and this short story was just as great as the others, if not better.
Quite an eye opener about a subject that is considered a taboo.

it started so well

I had high expectations for this book. The first several hours were so interesting but then the book just suddenly ended. I felt it was hyping up to something and it didn't deliver.
What's worse, the last 10 or so hours of the book is just interviews from the author's podcast. They are usually of extremely low sound quality and the topics are often not related to the subject of the book at all.
I am so disappointed.

I love the way the author has decided to tell the book rather then read it. It made a world of a difference.

it was a rewarding listen. However, I wonder if the author regrets all the praise he has given to Donald Trump.

I have been a skeptic for over 10 years and this course was a good refresher. I also enjoy the work on Michael Shermer so all in all this was a well worth my time.

This was quite a difference experience then I had expected. But that is not a bad thing. I really enjoyed and will listen to it again in the future.
