Anti-Trumpian rhetoric permeates this book like a cancer. Occasionally it hits on some good points but is mostly a hit piece. Don’t bother ... just listen to Better Angels instead.

Johann starts very strongly and gives great info on anti-depressant drugs but the final 1/3 of the book sounds like communist/left wing drivel.

Not bad but not amazing either.

After the truly epic "Sapiens" and the very good "Home Deus" Harari has completely missed the mark with this book. Instead of theorising and philosophising Yuval get's caught up in his own bias' and politics. If it were any other author you'd say it was a break through bit for Harari it is a complete and utter disappointment. 3/5 Stars.

When not referring to sex or religion Shapiro is on point!

However his extreme zealotry and prudish nature spoil large portions of this book.

The supreme arrogance of NNT in this audiobook is nauseating but the content is very interesting.

The recording is great quality but the chapter breakdown is poor (long silences).

Apps 1,2,3, and 5 were excellent.

App 4 - Medicine was off topic and Niall seemed to be struggling for content.

App 6 - Religious Work Ethic seemed a little out of place.

Overall it was decent book.

Note: Accents during quotes were mostly terrible.

Would you try another book written by Mike Cernovich or narrated by Mike Cernovich?

Written - Yes
Narrated - No

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gorilla Mindset?

The section on money.

Would you be willing to try another one of Mike Cernovich’s performances?

No. His speech was lispy and confused. Too many mistakes.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No.

Any additional comments?

Cernovich must get this book re-recorded.

Would you listen to The Black Swan again? Why?

No. Although I enjoyed the content Taleb manages to waffle on. I think he could've got his point across in about 1/4 the time.

Any additional comments?

Taleb comers across as arrogant and infinitely unlikable but knowledge of the 'The Black Swan' concept is a MUST for all investors. I also suggest further research on the barbell investment theory.
