Some people are very critical and demanding of their entertainment. Perhaps I am not, or maybe this book really was great!
I love the delivery of the narrator and his sarcasm.
Who knows how accurate the historical estimations are? All I know is that it is more than I know, or had the time to research.
It was purely for mental enjoyment and entertainment. If it was all true, then I am smarter then when I first pushed play. If not, then my friends at parties now think I am an idiot for all of the tid-bits I have spewed! Either way, I'm happy with the audiobook!
The information presented in this book consists of very simple, common sense practices. Together they serve to help demonstrate politeness and empathy.
The stories supporting the principles are outdated but applicable with imagination. The narrator is entertaining and perfectly appropriate for the time.
If implemented, the ideas expressed in this text will help the reader become a better person without doubt, simply by being kind and considerate. You can consider the approach manipulative if you innately maintain that behavior. Generally speaking, hopefully most people do not.
This book is very interesting. The ideas, though disorganized, were all joined together, one after the other, by a humorus commonality. It was good for me to stop and start again without worrying about where I left off because the topics jump quite rapidly. It is a cyclone of facts (hopefully) that kept me hanging on.
I enjoyed learning the obscure facts very much. This gives me something to inject into a conversation no matter what subject is brought up.
This book is generally great entertainment. There is so much information that is just too hard to stick. Perhaps I will listen to it again.
