Look, it’s a book that is both funny for the adults reading it and good enough for children without knowing the political punchlines.

Great pieces of work, loved Jim Parsons narration.

Keep up the good work!

A fantastically written book 📖 📚

I really enjoyed this book, every page had something useful that one could take something useful away with it.

To date, this is the best book, on the topic of the WWII Holocaust, written to date.

If you are perhaps new to reading WWII holocaust books and/or are looking for a read/listen that covers everything in an easy to digest manner, whilst not getting into too much detail on anyone aspect of the subject matter; than this is your book.

Author Laurence Rees is a very capable writer and has written about four to six books on WWII topic. I hadn’t realised that I already have two of his other literary works. Given that I enjoyed the other books as well, I’m confident to say that this wasn’t a one off. Read this book and then check out the others

Well done 👍🏻

Cheers,

David Doyle,

What a open, thought provoking and enlightening read

If you are genuinely interested in learning how you can improve yourself, especially from unconscious bias/racism; then this is your book.

Again, must emphasis you need an open mind and have willingness to change or you probably won’t finish it.

My only critique is that the voiceover tone was very bland. I’m talking, Siri & Alexa’s cousin. Maybe that was the idea, to have someone sound so completely neutral giving that this is a book on white fragility. Still, would have been easier listening a more vocal tone.

Poor attempt at analysing socialism

The United States Senator and Medical Doctor, Rand Paul’s, flirtation with publishing on the topic of anti-socialism was quite the flop.

I am a genuinely curious person who is always on the looks out for interesting books, the kind that gives way to new thoughts and ideas. When I do, I listen/read to both sides of the argument and decide for myself. The book’s title; “The Case Against Socialism”, sounded promising as a good read.

“The Case Against Socialism”, turned out to be little more than stating the obvious issues with socialism.

Rand’s use of inadequate and overtly simplistic examples of socialism to prove points that even the most fervent socialists would agree with.

All and all, I’m still glad I committed to finishing the book, even if it was just to see how far ultra-anti socialists will go. However, I wouldn’t recommend someone spending their hard-earned money on this.

Note: I very seldom write bad reviews, and am not a socialist looking to discredit a book.

Ps after looking up who Rand Paul was, I found that he was the member of the Senate that took a Covid-19 test, then, rather than going into quarantine (as is recommended), he continued to work and even went the Senate gym. Later, he turned out to be positive. He is a Doctor for goodness sake, he should know better. That’s the guy who wrote this book. It feels like he has something against socialism and started to write based on his feelings rather than facts.

Overall, a disappointing read, but got to learn a lot more about this public figure.

This work gives great insight into some of the inner workings of the domestic politics of the Empire of Japan.

I really enjoyed the straight to the point, sharp and pointed comments, criticisms and the general thought processes of some of the main stakeholders.

A nice short read/listen, well worth the investment.

What a story!

This is quite the extraordinary story, told and read wonderfully. John Denver’s story is one that could easily be made into a movie.

I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone and everyone,

Considering the book is covering a topic that already has a lot of literature written on the topic it was still very informative and I liked its presentation.

Absolutely bloody awesome
