You'll look at every roll, and aspect of the mats in a new way. I was sceptical about spending a credit on such a short listen, but it was absolutely worth it. I can see whipping this book out many times over the years, in those plateaus when motivation gets hard.

if you 're like me and loved Carlin's 'Hardcore History' podcast, you just had to get this book. I'm sure you'll find it fascinating in light of our current world situation. delivered as only Dan Carlin can.

compared to his excellent 'A Guide to the Good Life', this book felt more faddish, mainstream and 'self-helpish'. nonetheless, a witty and wise handbook on applying stoicism to your life.

The most gripping True Crime story you'll hear!

simply incredible. less of an audiobook and more of a Netflix style full production with background music, the accounts from the real participants on the case and victims are captivating. it captures the challenges of a life dedicated to catching bad guys. best story and production I've heard on Audible.

scintillating stories (though dark, dark subject matter) delivered by the best narrator possible. make sure you're in a resourceful state when listening, because the subject matter can be disturbing.

fantastical action-packed plot, with well structured, interesting storytelling. I find Cussler's dialogue somewhat unnatural, like every character is a walking thesaurus. I can't really rate the narrator as I haven't heard enough.
