    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are no characters, it's a non-fiction audio book.


    Have you listened to any of Dr. Anthony A. Goodman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't, but would love to do so!

    This course is definitely worth listening to. It is informative, and yet not overloaded with facts and statistics. It is, in my opinion, the perfect mix of science, curious facts and stories about Dr. Goodman's life and career.

    >When South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony was asked to accept a herd of "rogue" wild elephants on his Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, his common sense told him to refuse. But he was the herd's last chance of survival: they would be killed if he wouldn't take them. In order to save their lives, Anthony took them in. In the years that followed he became a part of their family. And as he battled to create a bond with the elephants, he came to realize that they had a great deal to teach him about life, loyalty, and freedom.

    What made the experience of listening to Thinking about Cybersecurity: From Cyber Crime to Cyber Warfare the most enjoyable?

    I found the topic of this course of lectures absolutely fascinating. I admit that I know little of computers and cyber security, so these lectures were very beneficial for me. Professor Rosenzweig is a great narrator which makes listening to his words even more enjoyable.


    What other book might you compare Thinking about Cybersecurity: From Cyber Crime to Cyber Warfare to and why?

    Can't think of any at the moment, but I will definitely read and learn more on this subject.


    What about Professor Paul Rosenzweig’s performance did you like?

    The way he talks and explains fully grabs your attention.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it was.


    Any additional comments?

    I learned a lot from this course. If there are any more courses of professor Rosenzweig, I will find and buy them.

    Would you try another book from James Clavell and/or David Case?

    Depends on who is the reader of the story line. James Clavell is one of my favourite authors, but I was very disappointed by David Case's performance.


    What did you like best about this story?

    "Shogun" is among my top five favourite novels. I like everything about this story.


    What didn’t you like about David Case’s performance?

    His voice and the way he reads the Japanese phrases.


    Did Shogun inspire you to do anything?

    Yes. It inspired me to read the rest of James Clavell's novels.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the book. Listening to this audio recording will prevent you from enjoying this great novel.
