I am not very familiar with atomic energy as a whole and this was certainly a good introduction to it, very readable and informative. I will be looking at other books on this topic after this one, some of the chapters were really good revealing a lot of information that I knew nothing about and was also interesting. I recommend this book to anyone that wants to know about atomic energy in a fun way.

Really enjoyable book

I watched the movie Charlie many years ago and it is a good movie but this book is much better because it gives more details about the story. Charlie narrating the story from his perspective is the best idea for the book it helps you see the whole story from his perspective, Truly enjoyable the end however was abrupt and let wanting to hear more about it something that was hard to achieve because he is narrating it. Highly recommended

What a story!

It is astonishing that something like this still occurs in the world, we are used to think that the world we live in has changed but the reality is that humans are capable of making suffer other humans when the circumstances call for it as is the case in places like North Korea where the communist dictatorship is capable of anything to keep power, even at the incredible suffering of their own people knowing well that their place in history has already been written and trying only to delay the inevitable as long as possible.

Highly recommended book

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.

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.
