Amazing book, repeat mistake

The book is amazing and I cannot recommend it enough. It's eye opening and is important historical information.

I must say, I was a bit peeves when the narrator kept saying "for example" when the book (which I am reading while listening like a nerd haha) says "I.e."
Because "I.e." means "that is" and saying "for example" is extremely confusing to hear.

So that's the only thing.

But I'm being nitpicky. Definitely get this book, it's so so good 🥰🥰🥰
