Complex, ruthless and highly enjoyable. My long time favourite. Audio version quite good I think.

Great book, very helpful, similar to his previous books.

I really like Ryan Holiday and he puts a lot of free content out via The Daily Stoic so I’m more than happy to buy his books. They are all great. However if you are on a budget, his books are all very similar.

A great read for those familiar with the subject

As an avid reader of ancient histories I was already very familiar with the topic. Historians have held a number of views about the causes of the fall of the empire and of the characteristics of the barbarians. This book covers a lot of old ground however it is still very interesting. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

In depth and thorough

A fantastic book that I thoroughly enjoyed. Theories backed up with practical examples. It is very long and is not light listening.

An eye opening version of events.

I love Shaun Attwood’s Books and YouTube channel. His retelling of stories reflect a more critical view of official versions of events which cast historical figures in a dim light.

Highly educational.

This book was very enlightening. It gives a great, though superficial, insight into a large religion. Interesting and impartial.

Gladwell books are always worth the price.

A great book that makes you reflect upon your own personal interactions. Definitely interesting the whole way through. I believe his other book, Outliers, is his best.

Very interesting and controversial.

Extremely well written and thought provoking and making a lot of points out loud that are usually thought quietly by people. Likely to be derided by social justice warriors, it attacks that culture and its illogical positions. I’ve listened to Douglas Murray before and enjoyed it, but this is the first book I’ve heard him narrate himself. He’s great at it, he should always narrate his own books.

Very interesting and informative.

An excellent take down of experts that rely on statistics. Also an interesting read for anybody who has to deal with so called experts that never seem to get things right.

Informative, horrible narration.

Whilst the book itself is very informative and I find the subject interesting, the narration was so dry and irritating I couldn’t listen for long periods. It was a real struggle to listen. I think maybe this book should be re-recorded. Seriously it sounds like a robot. It doesn’t deserve a decent rating solely due to the shockingly boring narration.
