Definitely Woody Allen is at its best performing his own autobiography. I’ve always enjoyed his jokes and sense of humor. This book is as cool as everything else he’s produced. Thanks Woody for shearing the awful story about what happened with Mia and really sorry to hear the craziness of the media. Reading this book I’ve laughed so much. Thank you !

An absolute must for anyone regardless of what discipline or professional background you have. This book helped me understand why Adam Smith’s butchers interest and division of labour is essentially faulted. An excellent and illuminating read.

Jock captures a lot of current issues like the wisdom of watching sports, how media works, youth corruption, challenges with growing up in single parent family to name a few. I like Jock writing and the way he articulates his story. The audio version is superbly performed as well.

Beautifully written and performed

This book is profoundly poetic and paints a beautiful canvas of Indian society right before and after independence. Key historical events are presented in flow of interweaving fantasy and reality while convening it’s message in a symbolic way. Even if you can follow the plot. You’ll still get it in the end.

How do you tell stories in the digital age. Terra Nullius is an great way on how to tell a young and in fact any modern audience what happened in Australia during 18th, 19th and beginning of 20th centuries. Humanity has come a long way since then. But how do you engage audiences with these type of historical topics? Terra Nullius is the answer.

Bought this book for my 13 year old daughter. This book is so well written with extremely clear and easy to understand examples of how and why science is important. The audible edition is great very well narrated so a real pleasure to listen to.

Would start by saying that’s easy to jump to conclusions about China without the valuable background presented in this book. Also it’s worth noting that this great people and culture have been “hard done” in part by the Western colonial power and in part by their own internal divisions. This course will enlighten and elucidate all this.

Yudkowsky explains very well what it means to be thinking in rational way. The book can be thought of as a starting guide on how to be more rational. I’ve enjoyed the thought provoking stories like the jester. I will refer to this book for years to come.
