I'm not sure why but I did not find this book very enjoyable. I loved the Dark Tower series very very much and found it hard to put the book down, but I found this one a chore to listen to for the most part unfortunately...
I am not sure if my experience would have been any different if I listened to it after Wizard and glass but I doubt it. Stephen King is the author bit his performance is no where near as good as the narrator of the rest of the dark tower!
At least I quenched my curiosity.
Worth another listen and a third and a fourth!
Listen with full attention in order to enjoy and benefit from this book!
At times this book felt like a documentary about Steve Jobs' life at Pixar, at other times it felt like a course on management, and at other times still it felt like a book of wisdom and even science!
I listened to this book not knowing what to expect exactly, and was very pleasantly surprised.
One must not listen assumingly to this great classic. If you've seen a movie or a musical based on this great classic, don't let it fool you into thinking you know everything there is to know about it! Listen to the rich language of this relatively short classic!
Thanks to this book, I have no more concerns when it comes to having my kids vaccinated. I will, however, still keep avoiding the seasonal flu shots as long as I have a choice.
I enjoyed the stores and I'm sure you will too.
Good reminder too! I wish it was twice as long perhaps!
I ALMOST quit listening to this book in the first half hour, but decided to stick with it, and I do not regret the decision.
I can see this book helping a lot of people, and I found some great ideas and it, but it seemed too cheesy at times. I am glad I read it though.
Please get rid of the silly pieces of music at the beginning of each chapter! It's the reason I rated he performance with 3 stars instead of 5!!
I do not regret a minute I spent listening to this audiobook. I will be sure to check out more of Steven Pinker's works!
I enjoyed this book just as much, if not more than, I enjoyed Calculating God, by the same great author!
I will definitely be looking to listen or read his other books, and perhaps Hominid will be my next title of choice!
