I'd say it's one of the better audio history books I've read. The reason I got this was because I really like listening to The Great Courses audio lectures on history, but they didn't have a course on Japanese history. Japanese is one of my favorite cultures, so I had to get this.
Probably the bits on history. I already know a lot of things about the culture, but the history is all new to me.
I'd just like to say that as a person who studies the language, some of the pronunciation for Japanese words was a bit off. For example, she was talking about Japanese Manga, and she pronounced it "Mane-ga" instead of "Mon-ga" like the Japanese would pronounce it. Other than that, I'm pretty sure this is accurate, because it follows everything I know about the culture, plus other bits of history.
Yes, definitely. It was very easy to get into and was packed with interesting facts and information.
It told history in a way that was easy to relate to and imagine. It also went into a lot of civilizations I love, like Egyptians and the Medieval period.
I'd say the chapters about the Egyptians. I also liked how informative the chapters on Greek and Romans were.
"History, told in a unique perspective."
Any lover of History or The Great Courses should definitely not miss this one.
I have no idea, I have only listened to the audio version.
"Why Men Love Bitches" has most of the same advice worded in different ways.
Her voice seemed to fit well with the content of the book. She kept things interesting.
I like the fact that the book encourages women to move on rather than trying to change a loser. In reality, that's the best thing to do.
As I stated in the headline, you would do best to take the book with a grain of salt. A lot of the tactics that are suggested would not work well in a long term, functional relationship.
That being said, I'd still say that this book has a lot of good advice. Especially with stuff like getting over someone or using birth control. And even without that, this is truly a hilarious and entertaining read. I enjoyed the author's sense of humor and brutally honest way of writing.
