Light hearted conversation with live audience. It's deep at times, a bit slow for my personal liking, but worth it for some great gems of wisdom. Good for bedtime listening.
Wow this is an exciting story, i didn't expect such a thrilling ride through a topic as bland as...maths lol. The rollercoaster of emotions of billions of $ being made and lost is breathtaking.
The timing and emphasis is great and really adds to the excitement, making the story easier to understand and appreciate.
Always on the edge of my seat, every chapter develops and progresses.
I originally got this because i was interested in how qants could be applied to stock trading, the story is quite light and helped me appreciate it more. I also learned a lot about how the GFC happened because of some smart people...who got outsmarted by the formulas they created.
For Auditory Digital \ Internal Dialogue people this audiobook is a great exploration of different areas of life. If you're self motivated and can push through all the questions with pen and paper, you'll arrive at an interesting destination. This is a workshop audiobook, so get ready to put in some WORK if you want to answer the question in the title of the book and find your own purpose.
For the majority of people (Visual or Kinesthetic) this book will just seem like a game of 100 questions that doesn't push hard enough, and a personal development seminar will be a better investment of your energy.
This book is a paradigm shift in biology science presented to the masses. So obviously the scientific evidence is NOT going to be university level as in a research paper, nor would i want it to be. It's purely for edutainment purposes and not for serious academic peer review. What it does do well is present some new views and concepts on how the body and mind work as one. Something that many cultures have believed for centuries. It's only science that chooses to split these up and ignore what it can't measure through experiments. 3 stars because it's much longer than it needs to be. For a casual listener the abridged version "The Biology of Belief" suffices to cover all the key points.
Listening to this audiobook is like one of those AHA! moments. It's where science and common sense meet and you think "isn't that obvious?" in hindsight.
A paradigm shift in the way we look at DNA, proteins, thoughts, and they way our bodies work. To summarize the book quickly, i'd say "You are not your DNA. Your DNA does not determine your destiny." And this is the proof we've been seeking.
If you really want to delve in to this topic and take the scenic route then get the unabridged version "The Wisdom of Your Cells: How Your Beliefs Control Your Biology". Or if you're short on time then this is the rush hour version to listen to.
