I loved how the author showed you through several ministories about real people and what I did correctly... at least in that particular incident and what was going on in their brain. The author effectively debunks some myths and has enough detail from anaytomy to psychology to satifsy a reader. FYI the stories are personal and interesting and not overall "touchy feely" which is great for me. She gets you to sympathy with the people in the story without going on and on as many books do.
She is very clear to understand and uses enough verbal skill to make it actually seem like a dialog and interpersonal chat.
Honestly too many parts were so good, but I would say how a person survived both Twin Tower attacks; it was utterly fascinating.
I do not think this book would be good for simply reading so you know what to do. Not saying most people buy it for this, but it is interesting and greatly helps you understand society and individuals when disaster strikes.
I cannot comment I do not have the print version, albeit I would be glad to get the digital copy to my Kindle if your offering ;)
Her writing style is similar to Amanda Ripley. The book itself is like any well written book on physiology/sociology.
Easy to read and accurate inflections.
Well laugh at parts, though this book is not what I would consider classically comical.
This book is worth the money.
This book talked about races and how it compared in by the introversion (Asian) and extroversion (European/ Americans) but fails to mention the race we all came from... African. The idea she uses to state why Asians are introversion and Europeans are extroverted should mean Africans are exceeding introverted, but they are not as much as Asian so her idea on this one idea to me is flawed.
Yes on the basis that they can handle a slow starting book and a rather poor performance especially at the beginning part of the books (see notes on performance). The book itself is fairly interesting but seemed to drag out some details that were too minor to make into the book, or extended well beyond what they should have been.
The book has numerous parts that I thought I should fact check as well and all of the ones I highlighted were fine given some lenience. After about 90 minutes the book picks up and becomes quiet enjoyable with a segments which slow it down intermediately.
It was a find ending, which they followed the two main stories more. The man "psychopath" and the part about the book seemed to end abruptly.
I thought the book was interesting and there was good "voice" as in you can get the personality of the author. However, the first hour or so of the book is louder than the rest and the author tends to have a lisp and sounds effeminate. This sounds rude, but like some homosexuals sound (albeit he mentions he is married with children). If you can get past the first hour or slow of a heavy lisp and effeminate sounding voice it does get better and both issues are considerably less noticeable. The sample is later in the book and if you listen closely you can hear it though it is one of the sections that has it the least.
A documentary, and the author himself.
Good book, I would buy if it goes on sale.
I loved how the author was able to explain not just the types of finance and how they evolved but also in history the triumphs and pit-falls of each type. In great detail he is able to explain why certain events happen the way they did and the impact they had on the world. Especially interesting is how new financial engines are able to make profit, and why the go bust (like the housing bubble of 2007).
No, but I am very ADD and hardly anything will every want me inspire me to sit down especially if its a 10+ hour book. I would listen to this book on my way to and from work each day in roughly 30 minutes blocks and I can tell you that the time flew by.
You have to be okay with at times some dry parts as this is a book on finance, however 85-90% of this book is very interesting. Also you have to be okay with British "odd" pronunciation of words such as hoo-mans for humans, homo-sap-eons for homosapions, and other small vernacular differences.
