I am highly interested in the Evolution topic and got this book to find the solid evidence behind Evolution. I as significantly disapointed.
I found it really really boring, it was a strugle to go through but I persevered.
The ""mountains of evidence" for Macro evolution that I was hoping to find was not there that I could figure out. I went through it a second time, but still I waded through tons of irrelevant detail but no real tangible evidence to prove the key Evolution assertion that our great ..... great grandfather was a self replicating molecule.
This book has significant historical significance - but I will stuffed if I can see why.
Frankly I am amazed how such a lame book has had the influence that it has.
There is a lot of good stuff in this book - but I found it hard to follow.
The excessive use of economic jargon left me lost in many places.
He makes many good points but the delivery is more complex and technical than it needs to be.
Perhaps for those whose who are working in the finance sector it may be Ok, but for an engineer like me - it was pretty hard going for a lot of the time.
I do however agree with his overalll conclusions:'
- Capitalism has been taken captive by some elusive group
- The American tax payer has been robbed greviously of over $700 billion
- America is on the verge of financial collapse.
Very practical and helpful because it:
- spleaks to real marriages not idealist fabrications
- it distinguishes the diffent needs of men and women.
My wife recommended to me and we have both found it very helpful
Our marriage has been positively impacted by this book.
I have been trading stocks for a number of years; but felt the need for some formal education, hence i bought this book.
I have gone through the first 4 chapters - but I don't plant to listen to the rest.
Typical of educational instituttions they make the simple complex instead of making the complex simple.
- Too much waffle and time taken stating the obvious which could be said in much simpler and clear ways.
- Instead of spending time clarifying the deceptions that are rampant on the stock market; the author takes ages stating the flaming obvious.
I would not recommend this to others.
The 9/11 commission like the Warren Commission into Kennedy's assasination served to quite the public, assign guilt to the scape goats and allow the criminals to go free. It has achieved that purpose. The Iraq war was started on false pretenses - wake up America.
The commission was either stupid or complicit in not examining evidence like:
1) The freefall speed of the towers clearly disproved the pancake theory
2) Where were the bits of the planes the kit the pentagon
3) Whey did the quickly remove and dispose of the girders?
4) The building were designed to withstand a plane crashing into them, why did thefy fall?
5) Why was the Osama Binladen and his family escorted out of the US?
This is discouraging listening
The simplicity, clarity, profoundness and easy to listen to style makes this book a truelly excellent experience.
As an engineer and Christian I had always earned for good, solid evidence to back up my Christian experience; this book provides these solid reasons based on evidence and logical deductive reasoning.
My faith has been greatly strenghthed and my ability and willingness to defend and proclaim the Gospel has been greatly enhanced. I am so enthusiastic about the content of this book that I am seriously considering leading a small group on this book.
My second listening to this book is clarifying and consolidating the various points.
I strongly recommend this book to Christians and atheists alike.
This audio book goes for over 20 hours. I went through the whole thing and found it very informative and worthwhile.
It is very educational and the presentation is excellent in that it does not get bogged down in detail and terminology.
Some of the history is highly disturbing - but the book does a good job of giving an detached observers overview.
I have no reservation in recommending this book.
This is one of the best books I have listened to.
I recommend it highly because:
- it is brutally honest; it does not sugar coat the conversion experience
He shares his journey "warts and all"
- It is highly informative and educational; I learnt much about Islam
- It is highly inspiring
- It is well presented and enjoyable to listen to.
The author is very articulate and communicates not only observable actions but also intent and feelings on his explorative journey. I was highly engaged listening to it. There were numerous times that I was teary eyed as I associated greately with Nabeel's conversion.
I cannot recommend it enough.
Highly recommended because it provides convinging evidence which shows that the Warren Commission was a complete white wash. Oswald was a distraction to prevent the real killers from being sought. The evidence is very clear in this regard.
the book is too long to go through in one sitting
The American people need to listen to this book and to rise up against the tyranical forces in power. This is disturbing but inaction will lead to tyrany and oppression.
The government needs to come clean.
It was easy to understand and was mostly free from technical gibberish.
It painted a clear and disturbing picture which will impact on all of us.
I liked it especially in that they do not expect you to just accept their conclusion; they give you their reasoning and it is their well thought out reasing which is really valuable.
It is mostly common sense - but it helps you to see through the BS that is fed to the public which prevents a public uproar.
I found the book highly profitable. I was going to buy into the US property market; but after hearing Aftershock, I have abadoned that idea. It has also helped me see why my shares were doing poorly. The Macro picture is vital to micro investing.
The chapter about economics and new theories etc was not as engaging as the first part of the book.
The Narator was excellent
Well worth the time.
It could save you thousands of dollars
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was interesting, engaging and also very heartwarming.
It will be heard to swallow for some people but the book is honest and does not seem exagerated or contrived - for this I was very greatfull.
It was also highly encouraging in that it produces hope and greater confidence that Jesus is real and waiting on the other side.
I highly recommend this book
