This book was full of information and insights which I found to be very interesting. That said, I am a huge early-American political thought nerd, and others might have found this level of detail and intricacy a bit difficult to grasp or at least be overwhelmed by all the little details that go into making what is a very nuanced argument. It might have been presented more concisely, but I like the book, I agree with the bulk of the author's insights and thought he explained it well and thoroughly and it was very well-thought-out.
A nice review of the major lessons to take from the life of Nelson Mandela.
Great coverage of the major themes of Western Civilization. Delightful to listen to in the author's voice and accent.
This book was fascinating and covered a riveting social issue in Jodi Picoult usual excellent writing. Not a happy camper with the ending though.
The different characters were fabulous with all their eccentricities and very human-ness.
The narrator's did a wonderful job.
I LOVED this book. I loved the broad scope of it and found the subject matter very interesting. Turns out, what's good for the body is also good for the brain. I hope these ideas spread far and wide throughout our education systems and invade our workplaces. Dr. Ratey, thanks for sharing!
