The audiobook is wesomely read by the author.
Interesting research data, a few sad examples.
Connection to Stanislavski!
Better than expected, strangely entertaining.
Highly interesting topics and ideas.
Bryson makes me laugh so hard. Most of the mentioned cultural differences are true, still.
Seems sincere. Surprisingly, author's analytical ability was not applied to other forms of worship, but I understand her loyalty to the people who supported her liberation from the worst form. Could be an educational read for any young p...
I wish someone had warned me about most of it early in life, it would have saved me so much time and energy lost on dominance-seeking people, and would have helped me escape the boredom of such interactions.
I was expecting more after watching an interview with the author.
I could argue with a few things, but the amount and the quantity of the material for thought make me deeply thankful to the author.
I wish most people would read a book like this.
A nice set of observations and predictions, somewhat obvious or repetitive at times.
Reading this book was a joy.
Friendships are precious and complex.
Educational, inspiring, warning, some interesting for me insight into Ukraine.
Deep Work is good, but I am biased because it reflects my own convictions.
Good information, some long boring passages, the authors sounds like a school girl who wants to be good.
A few stories and examples were good, some packed with unnecessary details, some boring, but the Kennedy flight example was misinterpreted (no mentioning of vertigo), so I started to doubt the quality of the author's research.
A well written story of the genetic discovery.
A good book, educational; most topics were familiar to me, and a few points were questionable, even at least one fact, but this is an impressive work.
Innovation, quantification, orchestration.
Excellent for a non-physicist.
Packed with unnecessary details.
Too much general and historical information. Almost stopped reading after the introduction: main problems tha humanity will face were not even mentioned.
Important information about human nature.
Bryson made me laugh again, right from the introduction :D (4.5 Stars)
Emotionally loaded and outdated as expected, with some good advice.
My system is somewhat different, but because of that I was able to learn a couple of things.
A huge good book: the author is quite thorough about explaining his points. The chapter on experts was especially useful, as well as one on optimism bias. PS: Preston McAfee et al.: "... In a broad range of situations, it is rational fo...
