Usually I wouldn't write a review before I had finished a book, but I just can't help myself... I'm sure that you hard core WoT fans out there won't need any further encouragement to purchase this one, but for anyone who does... Get it, now! :-) Seriously, it's good. Perhaps I'm just not as perceptive as I ought to be, but I've not yet noticed much difference from the quality that I'd expect of a book in this amazing series. So far, I think that Brandon Sanderson has stayed true to the characters that RJ created, and I think his style just works for this series. Needless to say, I am thoroughly enjoying this audiobook so far. I've already noticed quite a few plot lines moving forward and am learning answers to questions that I've really been waiting to find out about. I'd like to thank Mr. Sanderson for his wonderful work in continuing this series, Robert Jordan for caring enough about his fans to leave behind enough content for Brandon to work with, and of course, his wife Harriet for making a great choice of whom to continue his work. Very respectfully, Dominique.
Honestly... People who are putting the book down for reasons like, "What if everyone starts outsourcing? Who will be left to purchase what you're outsourcing?" and, "If every one of us was able to have a 4 hour work week no human development and achievement will be possible." Are you retarded? OF COURSE IT WON'T WORK FOR EVERYONE... Mostly because not everyone will do it (not to mention that not "everyone" will read this book)... Who gives a damn what would happen if "everyone" started doing the things that Tim suggests? It's not going to happen so why even bring it up? It's not "for" everyone...
To talk trash on this book just because it's not feasible for the entire population to do everything that's in it is just stupid. There are a lot of things that just about everyone could do, but that doesn't mean they'll do them. People have different goals, different desires, different lifestyles. Honestly, do you think that the entire human race is going to start implementing the suggestions in this book? No... Then why the hell would you even bring up the issue of "every one of us having a 4 hour work week," or it's impact on human development and achievement?
This IS a good book. Worth the money... I've read it at least 4 times now, and bought the print version. Also, I started my own business based on the suggestions in this book. I've used a LOT of the resources that Tim mentioned in this book, and I learned a LOT of things that I've put to use in my own business from this book. Will everyone benefit from this book? Well, apparently not... Some people see it only as "Snake Oil" and "balderdash" (who uses those words, really?). But for those of you who aren't idiots, you should definitely give this book a read...
From my history classes, I never learned the extent of the genius of this man. I cannot help but be amazed when I think about the things that Hannibal and his army endured. Throughout my educational history, I had gained a more than negative connotation to attach to the name, "Hannibal". After reading (listening to) this amazing accounting of not only Hannibal, but his brothers, father, and all of the Carthaginians for whom, Hannibal was a heroic champion, I have cast those thoughts aside. (Imagine, marching an army and elephants through the Alps to face the world's most feared Army!!!) I guarantee that you will want to hear this awesome story more than once!!!
