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.

A very important book for everyone.

So many concepts in this book correspond with ideas that religion and philosophers have been telling us for thousands of years.

This book is essential listening for so many people, but especially anyone who is trading their happiness for money/possessions.

A complex topic well written

A very basic discussion of an immensely complex topic. An enjoyable book written by a humble genius.

Whilst no doubt a highly intelligent person, Krauss’ manner is abrasive and self absorbed. Similar books by Carlo Rovelli provide very similar information but are far superior. This book was not in any way enjoyable.

Very in depth

I love Graham Hancock. This book is very in depth. A lot of ideas that are heavily criticised by establishment figures but are very interesting and credible.

Fantastic book, well written.

I certainly didn’t agree with all the conclusions, but it was a very entertaining and well researched book. Many of his ideas I think work in small experiments but would struggle if implemented across a national economy. But I enjoyed his point of view.

An old story but well told

The information is well covered and nothing new but it’s a great experience to hear it so appropriately narrated by Aidan Gilles.

Well read and entertaining.

A fantastic book. I was especially interested in his discussion of his own mistakes and weaknesses.
