Great book. Explained many things to me and has given me the tools to deconstruct white privileged in conversations with other white people. Thanks Reni!

This is nothing more and nothing less than a book with anecdotes about con-artists. There is some discussion of the psychological mechanisms underlying the tricks, but the discussion and critical analysis is light.

Fantastic story - beautifully written

Phil Knight has a real gift for writing, wonderfully written for someone who is not a professional writer. The story of Nike is inspiring - the guts and bravery shown by all involved is astounding.

This book definitely made me laugh and nearly made me cry. Both Phil Knight and this story are truely authentic, a refreshing change from the modern era of entrepreneurs whose anecdotes and perspectives are tainted by vanity and insecurity.

Bravo

This is my favourite audible book i've ever bought. The authors are clearly very very knowledgeable about platform businesses, and are systematic in their explanation of how platform businesses work, what makes them successful and the potential implications for society. Anybody interested in entrepreneurship, politics or just societal trends should listen to this book as soon as possible

I found this interesting, but there is not a lot of explanation about the media coverage of issues at the time. This is a problem with my expectations more than the book or narration, but I'm not old enough to remember these years and the much-discussed media coverage of the time, and that did diminish my enjoyment of the book.

Fascinating insight into the fear of death

I initially only downloaded this because it was free, but found I couldn't put it down and finished it in a day.

This translation is so powerful and emotive. The performance of this book left something to be desired - the music between scenes was tacky and poor quality, the voices of some characters were somewhat forced and over-acted.

But ultimately these complaints pale in significance when hearing them read this translation. Great job on the translation and to the voice of Oedipus! Really enjoyed this and will definitely be downloading others
