a wonderful look at not just what if, but what's happening now. a glorious hint at who we could be if only we tried.

Bloody brilliant mate

thought it was going to be one of those interminable coming of age books full of awkward moments and tales of teenage insecurities, and yup, lots of that - but so much more than that and the climax is a ripper. Wonderful reader too. Slips from character to character with complete believability. A great schmoosal of psychology, cultures and insights with a tight hold on the looseness of reality. Great story.

I really know I should listen to this, but it is interminable. How do I return it?

Sweeping generalizations, hypocrisy and smug arrogance. This author had a clear agenda and a strong personal bias. I was looking forward to listening to a fascinating area of discussion. It could have been good - instead it was intolerable.

Any additional comments?

Exhilarating to be listening to solutions (ones that could be implemented) instead of being ground down with all the problems.

Would you try another book written by Simon Sinek or narrated by Simon Sinek?

I wouldn't listen to another of his books, I didn't listen to all of this. Felt that existential angst of wasting my life while listening to it. Over-inflated pap.

Would you be willing to try another one of Simon Sinek’s performances?

No

This is just me. it was very well written. researched. But I've had enough of hearing how wrong things are I want to hear strategies for implementation. I know both are important but I'm over the doom and gloom. We need to build a powerful new narrative of hope and build bridges between our disparate movements and address the issue and come out the better for it. Write us that book!

Overwhelming the ways we can refute climate change. But written with humour and ultimately providing ways to navigate the rocky human psyche.
