This is a very confused audiobook for Spanish learners, the stories are spoken quite fast, then when they do breakdowns they decide to focus on the easiest and most random words, making them useless for understanding the actual conversation, if you can understand this speed of Spanish already you don’t need this book and if you can’t it won’t help you very much so it’s structure, however it is still Spanish listening practice, just don’t expect very much

If you like C Tha God, You'll love this book

Great book and well performed by the author. Was worried this book would just be lots of waffle used to make money but there are some interesting stories and great gems in here all read with passion, humour and humility by Charlamagne himself.

Katie's contagious passion and formidable expertise are perfectly focused in this book! It contains tonnes of brilliant content and a lot of different ideas of practical ways to implement the ideas into your life. Gives you an overview of Katie's philosophy and what you need to know about the final details and how to go about curating and interpreting information in the future
Already bought the paper copy this book to give to a friend. Will definitely be recommending this to a lot of people

Absolutely brilliant set of lectures, very interesting questions posed and a lot of arguments given to explain and defend his stance

A lot of fluff to pad this out for a book, the useful stuff could be summarised in a short blog post

First 6 chapters are great with some applicable philosophies but 7-13 are largely useless talk of ancient warefare you could easily just skip altogether. Still recommend for the gems in the first half and Aiden Gillens performance is spot on!

Brilliant!

Starts off ok, but 2/3 of the book is mostly useless cliche self help fluff repeated in different ways that you hear and see everywhere, honestly there are plenty of blog posts and YouTube videos that will give you just as much for free
