Any school child will know this. Nothing for me here. 11 chapters in he still hasn't told me the origins of life. I'm returning this lecture

I found the book to be full of facts and information by the authors who are clearly experts in the field. As a lay-person interested in the subject I did however find it particularly 'technical' and being unfamiliar with the jargon, e.g Prokaryotes to Eukaryotes, etc is a bit heavy going for 12 hours and therefore I did find it difficult to follow. Also, the Audible version is presumably a recording of their live classroom presentation whereby they often refer to slides which is not much use when listening on my phone. Would be a particularly great book for academics in this subject.

Sombre, morose, disjointed.

Ditch the narrator to start with. Too sombre and depressing. But then, he reflected the book's content. Humans have done a lot a bad things but I don't need a lesson in pessimism on every page. I found the subject matter jumped all over and felt disjointed. Reading the author's peer reviews convinced me his facts were sketchy and unreliable. I was halfway through when I decided this and stopped reading at that point. On the upside, there are is an incredible amount of info in the book.

So much info in one book. Really great source of nerdy facts and knowledge. Each sentence is full of fascinating facts. I've listened to this book several times and looking forward to the next.

Very enjoyable and amusing storytelling

Similar to listening to the old guy who lives across the street. Often amusing with great words of wisdom. I feel I could be a better person after listening to it. However the book always recommends taking a submissive approach with others which doesn't reconcile easily with assertiveness and confidence nor the egotistical popular people.

Understand how women think and feel!

This book really helped me to understand how women may think and feel and see the world. To understand the difference between feminine and feminist. Also to understand myself and how I can be a confident centered male and to have confidence in being a distinct polar opposite to the feminine energy. All my life I thought this was BS until it was explained correctly in the book. It's really a valuable lesson to learn - for men and women.

Superb. Great life.

Face value I had nothing in common with Ant. However, I pretty quickly realised I could relate to almost every story he told. I found that amazing. He's bloody decent sounding bloke and he's learnt life's lessons through adventure and mistakes. Looking forward to my 3rd reading.
