Maybe not quite as good as the great hunt, but it's another hit of a wonderful story and kept me gripped till the end. The story really keeps you spiralling faster and faster until the climax, and it was lots of fun. The more I listen to Kate Reading and Michael Kramer the more I enjoy having the split.

A good writer, but thin arguments

Gladwell usually boils things down really well but I think he's oversimplified some complex issues in his quest to make it all easy. I think he's straying into rape apologist territory at times; and was it really just misunderstanding that led an intensely corrupt and incompetent police investigation into Amanda Knox? Too easy I think.

A good read. Scott is a bit preachy at times but that's what makes him popular. That and his advice is really good. Give it a read. Tread your own path :)

Mosley has updated his previous few books and summarised then with the latest science in this one. he has an entertaining style, and the strategies he suggests are really solid. Worth buying if you are looking for a solid and realistic weight loss approach that is also as quick as it gets. I'll also add that the book is fairly brief, but that's because he gets to the point and doesn't mince words - so a big plus in my books.

Glad I read it.

A worthy introduction to Steiner's life and work. Helps to guide further reading of such an interesting and prolific guy who does sound really ahead of his time. the narration was a bit average though with some misreading of words e.g. causal vs casual

Loved it

I've heard people say you are either a 1984, or a BNW person but I honestly loved both. Clearly a classic and worthy read. This book had a lot of really impactful moments (John tells of how Shakespeare gave words to his anger and thus let him experience it). Top marks.

better than the first

Frankl has a rare personal insight on trauma and survival. Worthy of its regard as a psychology classic, and very easy to read.

Quality and entertaining!
