A fantastic extension to the Three Body Problem. An brilliantly constructed story. Can wait to start for final in the series.

The narrator is even growing on me.

A great story, with some good twists. An interesting Chinese cultural undertone.

Narration was ok. A little distracting.

This book has some useful insights in a couple of areas, but on the whole the examples given were quite basic and sometimes confused, even inaccurate.

The narration is quite distracting, and feels like you are listening to an infomercial or a safety video.

I wouldn't recommend this book. Spend 30mins researching the subject on Wikipedia instead and you'll gain a better understanding of the topic.

Such a straightforward concept, with the potential for dramatic results.

The book can seem a little repetitive, but in reality it is just looking at this one key concept from all angles.

The self narration is not as polished as other books, Sinek however adds his energy and emphasis to the reading.

An amazing story of a truly remarkable and resilient man. Vance captures Musk's personality, both good and bad points, and digs deep into his success and failures.

Very well narrated.

Although the book focusses on 'Bushido', in its pure sense Musashi's way of strategy is ever applicable to modern leadership.

The narration matches the content well.

Very useful and detailed history of the issues and some of the major players in the AGI/ASI world. A little laboured towards the end, the mains are really made in the first half. I agree with other reviewers that the author has a significant bias toward the potential negatives. However all books of this nature should be read with an open mind, and if nothing else, this book gives you a thirst to dig deeper.

Narration came across as a little robotic initially, but grew on me by the end.
