the romance was spot on! not a single glance was wasted. So much more complexly written than I had expected. As a civilian, military life appears to have been portrayed with realism in mind and doesn't start away from hard topics. definitely worth a re-read!

feels more like a passionate disassembly of evolutionary psychology and early anthropology than a book about how sex evolved. I wonder if, a decade later what the authors might revise. I was particularly surprised at how unimportant sexuality or gender was in this book as they saw all sex as sex. refreshing.

keen for the next. Fry's narration is stellar. Rowling pulls no punches in this one. To Cedric Diggery.

fast-paced, expertly written by King and my first of probably many more of his works. A few tropes here and there but King is quite tongue and cheek which is refreshing. interesting commentary on mental illness. Not politically correct at all but that's what makes it such a good take.

witty, engaging story respectfully crafted from the experiences of a Western funeral director discovering, first hand, the death rituals of other cultures. my favourite of Doughty's works. Thankyou for such a meaningful recording. would recommend to a friend in a heartbeat.

Very USA focused. less of a 101 and more historically based. first half was concise and informative but would have benefited greatly from images. probably best read in book for to refer back to this section like a glossary. confusing position on climate change with a section on galactic forces being presented after the climate change chapter, implying non-anthropogenic causes for climate change. Weirdly outdated when mentioning landline phones or specific weather apps.

loved it. Well written, if not a little passive aggressive haha. incredibly well researched and full of whimsy.

very reminiscent of her YouTube channel. Well researched and respectful, yet unafraid to point out hypocracies in modern funeral practices. Informative for educations sake and, though the author owns a business, never peddles certain options over others. hilarious, Frank and full of gumption.

thoroughly researched and enrapturingly performed. I expected nothing less. Carlin offers no solutions or philosophical gleanings. Just a devastating, highly objective account of human history.

needs another listen. so jam packed with usable information. no jargon. no bull. no synergy. just pure, structured goodness.
