The audiobook provides a thought provoking account of Edward Snowden’s exposure of a secret US programme of mass-surveillance; detailing his life and influences, events leading up to the disclosure of the programme, and his time in exile..

The story is very well-written and narrated, and recommended for anyone interested in intelligence matters and the ethics of information collection and use.

Dr Glover describes with great accuracy the thinking style of the nice guy; and how his flawed beliefs prevent him from getting the best out of life.

This is a well-written, well-read audiobook with many useful insights and practical advice for recovering nice guys. Highly recommended.

An entertaining and informative explanation of how behavioural economics came into being, with many examples of its application.

Well written and exceptionally well narrated, I’d recommend this book for anyone curious about the subject.

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook much more than I'd expected. The content was predictably fascinating- really well-written; and the narration was exceptionally good. The finished product was entertaining, engaging and very easy listening.

There can no doubt the author knows a thing or two about brewing beer. However this is not so much a brewing master class, but more of a series of lectures covering topics from brewing history to brewing science- and many others in between. Narration is clear, if a little slow.

This audiobook hits the spot on several levels. As a business success story it leads the reader from the struggle of early days to more heady times of business success. The book is well written and narrated, and would appeal to budding entrepreneurs and anyone with a thirst for craft ale.

A political story not a special forces story

I purchased this audiobook hoping for a special forces story of derring do; I was a little disappointed. The story-teller focusses on the political story, which was quite interesting but a tad over-stated.
