Is this a great work of philosophy... no. Does it make you think about topics in different ways...yes. Look, the book might have flaws but I think any book that causes critical thinking is a good thing. If you disagree with the contents, good! At least you are thinking.
I have read the hyper-critical of this work and honestly,the bad reviews convinced me to get it. Someone goes on a 750 word rant about how their thoughts are far superior than the book just make me want to see what the fuss is all about. Rather than trying to prove who has the bigger brain just open up, listen and compare or contrast you own thoughts and opinions.
This book facilitated free thought and that is what philosophy is all about...the investigation of the nature, causes, or principles of reality, knowledge, or based on logical reasoning rather than empirical methods.
I love Martin's book series and HBO's series and this is a good companion.
I live in Thailand, and love to listen to audible.
The narration is great. The book is wonderful, a real inside look into the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's and other movies of the time, and what life was like back then. Tells about the producers, directors, and actors. Interesting insights into the lives of actress Audrey Hepburn and author Truman Capote, revealing how their lives and loves went, for better or worse. Really great listen! It is really amazing.
