One of the most fascinating and important topics of there, Hararri raises difficult questions about where humankind is and where is it going, spiced with humor and backed up with tons of research. For anyone who wants to develop their own critical thinking, I cannot endorse this book enough!

Save your time and money, it's a big pass.

Vagabonding is about taking time off from your normal life - from six weeks to four months to two years - to discover and experience the world on your own terms. Veteran shoestring traveler Rolf Potts shows how anyone armed with an independent spirit can achieve the dream of extended overseas travel.

this was the most obsolete audio I've ever listened to. hearing Tim Ferris literally drooling over this book in his recommendation by calling it a game changer and a 'must read' made me want to know what it was all about, obviously I was disappointed. spare yourselves the money and go travel
