The Enchiridion is great. The discourses are long, dated, and tedious. Yep, the word slave is thrown about a lot as an insult, and many a mention of one's head being severed as a rhetorical threat. Bring a strong stomach, an open mind and a great deal of time if you want to listen through.

Very good

Very informative read into psychology, persuasion, and behavioral sciences. I am a long time student of behavioral economics and this book tied in not only some areas of study that I have already encountered (even from one of my lecturers) but other principles that I may not have thought to relate back. It's inspired me to continue my research and perhaps even write something myself.

The review I had to write

I did not love this book; to do so would be alarming at best, disturbing at the least. I enjoyed it regardless. A great many truths are told within as if they were fiction. The cult of personality, fascism, totalitarianism, the worst of capitalism and communism all spelled out with the station of greed. Human, or animal, or pig. No matter, you can be enthralled and taken aback by this tale. Never mind some older English or the poor whistling, this is the dramatised unabridged version of the infamous Animal Farm.
