Albeit, a bit "pop", and some ideas proposed at the end are a little sketchy ... this book seems well researched, -I spent six years in the Army-, very intriguing, at times captivating, and well written. I would highly recommend.
If you care about George defending dating women in their 20's, his impotence, painted toe nails, and other -really not funny- nonsense this is the book for you.
Written and narrated for a third grader. If you haven't mastered social engineering at this level by the third grade ... ??? : ( I was hoping for a "fresh" 21st Century take on assertiveness, and this wasn't it.
This might have been a intriguing and informative listen, except I -personally- could not get past the narration, and subsequently not past the first chapter.
No "refer madness" here, just a well researched, comprehensive, reality based breath of fresh air that has been long over due.
Too many to list.
This is a must read.
This was an excellent listen! The author/narrator sounds a lot like Bill Bryson, very similar personality also. I highly recommend!!!
This is a promising book. I wish I could have tolerated the narration long enough to finish it.
If I had known it was basically pro Israeli, anti Islam/Palestine propaganda.
The Demon in the freezer
He's a joke.
Mosab. He states that the Palestinian people are mere barbarians and fanatics, who would be fighting one another whether Israel had been imposed on the region or not. At first Mosab's character seemed complicated, conflicted and intriguing. I was looking forward to hearing this young man's honest first person account of the issues between Israel and Palestine, from the Palestinian point of view. This is a Palestinian individual with a decided Israeli point of view, with some anti-American jabs just for kicks. He describes himself as a "spy", the correct label, if any part of this story is true, would be be -informant- or "snitch", licking the boots of his new Israeli Masters. This is pure propaganda. Unfortunately, I was almost finished with this book before I declared it absolute nonsense, turned it off and penned this review.
I burn through these audio-books like wildfire, and on many, many occasions, I have found myself half way through a book only to find that it has a hard Christian or Jewish slant. I read almost exclusively non-fiction, so I expect non-fiction. Personally, my beliefs are secular in nature, and I respect other religions. Although, if I want some religion, I'll buy some religion. I really feel ripped off when "Christianity" or "Judaism" is the equivalent to a jack-in-the-box, in the middle of a book. It really makes me reluctant to try new authors on Audible.It's difficult with audio-books, because you cannot check a little of the beginning, middle and end. You only have the publishers sales pitch, a brief audio clip to check the narrators voice (this is actually huge), and hopefully some accurate customer reviews. I have purchased over 1,200 titles since joining Audible in 2009. I can safely say (not proudly) that at least 1/3 of those books were purchased in error. Anyway ... this guy is a joke and so is his book. : (
The content was great, and if you can survive the narration, the book is really good. I would say it's in the top 25 audio-books I've listened to. I guess it says something if the content is good enough to -almost- neutralize the narrator? I don't know if I could/would tolerate another
The book contains copious amounts of information. There was no single
Mr. Klav should seek another line of work. He should also give back the money he was paid for this book.
Mr. Domscheit-Berg sure does have some animosity toward Julian Assange! And, that is all this book is, sour grapes. This guy does not miss an opportunity to slight Mr. Assange, including critiquing his wardrobe (several times) ! Talk about a crybaby! I want my money back! Daniel Domscheit-Berg is a sniveling whiner, and manages to snivel and whine throughout the entire book. Second place is just the guy who lost first. This book has little to do with Wiki, and quite a bit to do with Domscheit-Berg's bad taste, poor timing and lack of physical endowment. Save your money, I wish I had.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, I love this guys no BS outlook on life, and admire the Genius. My only complaint is that it was not narrated by Mr. Taleb. It's not the Black Swan, but almost equally entertaining, if he had read it.
