Learning is Incidental Here

Delivery is interesting enough, but the content is a structural mess, which is surprising for a third edition, and ironic for a book of this nature.
Author's perspectives on marriage, religion and education are stunted and ought be salted and stored for posterity.

Otherwise, it's ok.

Awesome book!

I was apprehensive about getting this book because there weren’t any reviews or ratings on it yet but boy am I glad that I did. It is a Super interesting book with lots of insight. It’s read by the author and he does a great job of connecting with his audience. He really knows what he’s talking about. It’s Very entertaining and sprinkled with self deprecating humor throughout and i Will definitely listen to it again. Thanks Mr Rogers
