What is that magic quality that makes some people instantly loved and respected? Everyone wants to be their friend (or, if single, their lover!) In business, they rise swiftly to the top of the corporate ladder. What is their "Midas touch?"

Although clinical research has been conducted on narcissism as a disorder, less is known about its effects on victims who are in toxic relationships with partners with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Individuals with this disorder engage in chronic devaluation and manipulation of their partners, a psychological and emotional phenomenon known as "narcissistic abuse". Unfortunately, the full extent of what narcissistic abuse entails is not taught in any psychology class or diagnostic manual.

Lots of useful info. It says there is a ebook companion with this. Couldn’t find it. I had bought the ebook directly before it was mentioned. No regrets. It’s still worth it. Lots of links referenced in the book. Hence need for the book. Overall. Absolutely worth the purchase

In the past the elders had encyclopaedic memories. They could name all the animals and plants across the landscape and the stars in the sky, too. Yet most of us struggle to memorise more than a short poem. Using traditional Aboriginal Australian songlines as the key, Lynne Kelly has identified the powerful memory technique used by indigenous people around the world.

Loved the book. I wished there were more chapters like the Journey through time. The rest of the book actually builds to that chapter. Definitely a great resource.

The book is a collection of hard truths I had read about in other books. The author does not mince words. Gets right into topic.
I felt a bit disturbed with the gory details of some stuff.
The does not treat the reader as if to introduce the topic gently.
I enjoyed the subject matter.

What impulse drove ancient cultures to create sites like Stonehenge, Machu Picchu, and the pyramids at Giza? Why are we so transfixed by their presence today? And what do they reveal about our ancestors-and humanity? The dynamic force of religious belief is responsible for some of the world's most popular and ancient locales.

The course covers a brief history of the world from the archeological view.
Covers a range of places from all continents.
I am not sure now, but I think Harappa mohenjodaro site was missed out. Was it not a source of religious practices?
The definitely gave me new perspectives and some facts.
The reading is a bit slow and this is a long course. I put it at 1.25x speed.
Definitely recommend it to all.
