I actually had never heard about this case before, it is very well done, only the last chapter is in my view not as good as the others.

It is highly recommended

Good advice, the 12 rules make sense

I think that the 12 rules are really helpful I enjoyed several chapters but especially rule 11 I think is quite good.
On the other hand I found some of the information for a few rules very long and I am not sure made sense with the rules, also I found some part too preachy for my taste and some of the religious references a bit much, I would have preferred a more secular approach I think the author goes a bit over broad trying to convince us of his own religious believes.

I do recommend the book however.

Realmente es la otra historia.

Este es el tercer libro de la Otra Historia de México que leo o bueno en este caso lo escuche los otros dos los leí.

El concepto de presentar la historia con seres humanos en lugar de héroes es realmente bueno, recuerdo que el libro de Juárez y Maximiliano me gustó más pero este también tiene muy buena e importante información, espero que algún día así sean los libros de texto, nos ayudaría a apreciar mejor nuestra historia.
La narración fue buena en general pero hubieron algunos errores y algunas pronunciaciones extrañas como Oacsaca.
Realmente recomiendo no solo este libro sino la serie de libros sobre la otra historia.

Very interesting facts.

What I liked most from the book is the way everything is presented, I think that the two authors are or at least present themselves as very interesting characters in real life and the book has their seal.

It is a good book but some of the questions have very short answers and some have long ones. For some questions the answers in my opinion should be expanded adding more information.

I really enjoyed the book

This book is really good, it has lots of very interesting information, very well written and the narration is also quite good, the only issue I have with the book is that in its realism, has a negative tone in certain parts and I am not really sure whether the author has a positive view of the outcome in the future, to me he has the position that what comes in the future is inevitable because sapiens cannot do any better and the best that can happen is to adapt to it even if it is not very good, this may be true but it does not give a very positive feeling of the outcome other than it is better than the past and the best that we can do.

All of the Great Courses that I have followed are really good, not only the content but the presenters are remarkable and this one is no exception, in fact this is one of the best presenters that I have had the opportunity to listen to. The contents is really good, I already knew most of the information but how he had put it all together makes this course highly recommended. I enjoyed all all the lessons but the last 5 are the ones that give the most interesting advice.

Really good information about inequality

I was not sure if I was going to like the book, I have read some reviews and some did not paint a good picture but I actually enjoyed the book, even if you do not agree with the main claim of the book (r> G) I do believe the good is worth the time to read it or listen to it, the information presented is really good and the explanations are clear, I really think is a good book and deserves the commotion that created when it first appeared, the last three chapters are really good.

Valuable information on trust and its importance

A very good introduction with examples of why trust is importan including some of what happen when you do not trust.
The example of Rwanda was the best and also the scientific evidence on Oxytocin, especially at the end.

The narration was really good as well. I recommend the book, I would have expected a bit more of information on the research done on trust

I have listen to several of the Titles in the Great Courses series and all of them are quite good, well to me this is one of the best Prof. Viskontas presents very good information and also presents in a really fun way. I truly enjoyed it, all 24 chapters have wheat of information on how to be skeptic about all the myths that she is busting in this course. The last chapter really left me intrigued because of her position on whether technology is negatively affecting our brains, her position is refreshing but following her line I am skeptic of her claims.

Really good course highly recommended.

Excellent book, the approach taking to explore the concept of abundance is really good. I have heard of most of the information in the book but how it is related to the concept of abundance makes it more interesting. I like the way that the authors present the possibilities of he future without minimizing the challenges of today that may impact that future, highly recommended book.
