This book was exceptional overall. I never gave much thought on why some things in our homes are they way they are. A few chapters had a little too much background on architects but overall a very enjoyable listen.
Because even though I have more Epicurean tendencies as opposed to stoic, this book is full of wisdom that could inspire the reader to cultivate his or her character.
The idea of being more thoughtful than passionate when dealing with others.
While the average listener will not have the same context the great author Marcus Aurelias did when writing about roman Gods the listener will still get a feel for how the great leader processed his world and made decisions.
Overall a good listen with a good reader.
First hand experience in living the story. You feel like you were there
The story of the man who got up with reptilian strength and survived for his family.
This book makes all fad diets seem silly and educates the listener about some hard scientific truths about what we eat. I grew up eating meat pretty much for every meal. This book will make you challenge widely held beliefs about how to eat healthy.
The China Study
He runs a practice and all of this information is based on clinica
And research medicine.
This was a fun listen. It will leave the listener with a good knowledge on why Beck is not only inconsistent in his statements, but also downright disingenuous. The question we are all left with is whether Beck is laughing all the way to the bank knowingly duping those looking for their daily "the world is ending" fix, or is he touched in the head. Either conclusion seems viable and this book gives great evidence about his ideologies and where they come from.
This book makes the assumption that most of his craziness comes from his conversion to the Mormon faith. But is brings up an interesting point that he was not unanimously accepted into the faith when put to a vote. Very telling on how he must have been for those that knew him.
Overall this book stays with Beck and gives good background information on his rise to fame and riches. Fan or not I think you'll find this book entertaining.
I found this book on accident when I found out it was the inspiration for "The Warriors". I debated on whether to download it but it has become one of my favorite books. The reader who wants an engaging story will not be dissapointed. However the true brilliance of this book lies in how Xenophon shows great use of reason and leadership in the face of extreme trials. If anyone is a project manager or has any interest in being a good leader this book is more useful than The Art of War.
