Could get a bit preachy at times, but this was quite informative and did a reasonable job of holding the line.

Well considered and argued

I wasn't super familiar with their work before, but I really enjoyed this piece. It is very well argued and has some amazing examples which leave you considering points of view you might not have otherwise.

It has some good stuff, but also a lot of really boring or weird parts which drag on.

Some great context and insights. You won't agree with everything Howard says, but he's got some argument and principles behind whatever it is he's saying.

I was getting really angry at the start of this because of how simple it was, but it got much better. While some of the examples are a bit much, the author does a great job of explaining some tough concepts.

Not as good as his earlier stuff

Anything by YNH is worth a listen/read IMO, but it must be said that he peaked at Sapiens. This book has a similar trait to Honour Deus whereby it seems to ramble on a bit and comes to a concluding point too abruptly.

Worth it

It's on the long side and can at times feel a little random in its structure, but it's a great book and is read in a very engaging way.

Some real gems in here and the performance is good, but in typical NTT fashion there is a bunch of rubbish annecdotes and petty swipes at people.

The best

This has been the best audio book I've ever listened to and I imagine if I'd read it, it would have been the best book I'd read also.

Worth a go for something different

Very punchy and offers some refreshing perspectives. Not very technical. Helen should not narrate but you can get past that after a while.
