"Thug Notes is taking wonderful literature and making it understandable, embraceable and making it usable." (Tavis Smiley)
This is one of the books that is a must-listen! Hilarious, insightful, educational, engaging and entertaining throughout! Greg Edwards does a phenomenal job! Looking forward to the next book by Dr. Sweets 😘 😉
The book was really fun to listen to but was missing a clear ending. it just dropped off. would be better if it had a summary/conclusion.
It has been often said that those who truly know their subject matter can simply and clearly explain it to ANYONE. Sparky Sweets PhD is therefore a highly knowledgeable and learned authority of literature. Moreno than any other I've heard.
He can explain classical literature to anyone, keeping the listerner/reader engaged all the while, and he proves it in this book.
If I were a teacher in collegiat classic literature, I would present this to my class as a powerful learning aid. A wonderful perspective to aid in understanding the subject AND keep my class engaged while they read.
Obviously, the narrator was my favorite speaker. I eagerly await his next project!
