Long Winded and Preachy

I didn't get past the preface and first chapter. Takes 5 minutes to say something that can be said in 30 seconds. I would not recommend purchasing this. I wish I could get my money back.

Pep Talk

I was expecting more but this is a bunch of unpractical pep talks which you can find plenty of videos on youtube.

A new and old kind of theology

The author seems to be trying to convince his child and the rest of us that everything started with us and continues with us and there is no authority over us and so on and so forth. The narration was irritating and the theology is not something I subscribe to.
