Spent too much time running down theories of people with whom they disagree (Richard Dawkins, for example) and trying to convince me that God exists. Would have been a much better book without that. And didn't need it either, would have been perfectly fine without it.
He was a good narrator.
I thought I was buying a book by Sam Harris the religion writer. But this Sam Harris turns out to be an actor/singer, it is not so much a story as much as a collection of memories that are not really connected in any way except that they are about him. I really enjoyed it but Mr Harris ought to be aware that the people (particularly taxi drivers) who wear turbans are Sikhs not Muslims and the accent he uses as "middle eastern" is, in fact, Indian.
Great Courses promises more than they deliver.
Not really sure.
There is no real history of the common man. And certainly not of woman. It's a waste of time. I got bored and stopped listening after a few hours of nothing interesting.
There were some good ideas for talking to people about god and religion.
Not at all.
Sounds like George W Bush
I'm not sure I understood what I was buying but I find the idea of proselytizing for anything to be annoying. Made some good points though. I found the comments on line by religious people who disliked his message hysterical.
If you think you will gain any insight that may be of help in your own life don't look here. It's not uninteresting but it's certainly not helpful. Just a litany of the lives of some creative people without insight.
Lack of insight.
His performance was fine.
I stopped listening.
One of the best books I've listened to. Loved her voice, her insight and use of language.
Funny funny funny
Loved her parents' voices.
I'm listening to it again.
In the top 10%
Some of the philosophical stuff was a little too much. But enjoyed it very much.
