I have read several Big History type books and never seem to tire of them. In this book David Christian casts a fresh perspective that is informative, easy to follow and thoroughly enjoyable. In particular the final chapter is a poignant and thought provoking challenge to all of us that I reread several times. This is a terrific book, very well narrated. I recommend it highly.

This real life horror story is addictively entertaining even though you can’t help recoiling from the continuous stream of ghastly revelations about Trump, his family and associates. Excellent narration. Highly recommended.

I first read this book in print when it was published in 2003 and loved it. Listening on Audible in 2020 was as interesting and refreshing as the first time. It is an incredible tale of so much in our Universe and history. Brilliantly written as only Bill Bryson can, and expertly narrated it is a must read for any curious mind.

Informative and Enjoyable

A really entertaining and informative book. Everyone knows how important the heart, brain, lungs and other gizzards are. But we kind of forget about the good old gut. At least I did until my gut went haywire a few years ago, and you really appreciate its wide ranging impact. This book is a great journey through our inner workings. Well read, always interesting. We all have a gut, you might as well know how important it is and this book does that well.

Wow. This is is a riveting pull no punches book by a master strategist and story teller. I was enthralled, and horrified, from start to finish. Message for our Dear Democrats: buy it, read it, learn it, do it. This is not another "Trump is a Jerk" book, because we all know he is. This is a "How to Get Rid of this Jerk or Else" manual. Great writing, great pace and terrifically narrated.

Superb and very disturbing

This is an extremely articulate and well argued account of the Idiot in Chief and his band of spineless sycophants presented by an insider with pure intentions. A must read for all political persuasions and especially conservatives who really need a wake up call to save everyone from this nightmare regime.

This is a well researched and presented book that makes you furious at and revolted by the manipulative forces that have warped our society. So much for the illusion of a free democracy. Everyone should read this brilliant horror story.
