struggled to finish it, the narrator has a monotone voice that sends you to sleep. I thought it would be exciting and tell me something I didn't know. not recommended.

A profound awareness of society today

A very interesting and informative listen.
I have read it four times already but keep going back.

Could use a better narrator.

struggled to finish, I noticed that a lot of the info in this book was simply googled, word for word in some cases from Wikipedia.
The narrator seemed to be trying too hard to speak in 'Queens English'.

A very good insight on what goes on inside us

I can't believe it's a bill Bryson, he's voice is really not suited for this book. I had to stop myself from falling asleep in most parts. He uses the most mundane examples. I found this book very depressing.
