The book starts in the middle of Ghengis Khans reign. No origin story, doesn't explain his early life or rise to power, I stopped listening before the end of the first chapter because this book is clearly written for people who already know alot about him. Starting this book is like joining a class halfway through the semester.

Better to purchase for five dollars than to use a credit. Ancient war wisdom, tactics and strategy.

Well narrated by Haidt himself. Learned alot about spotting my own confirmation bias (I already saw it in other people) lol...

Best and most interesting book I have ever read.

This is my first time listening to the book after having read it once. I suggest reading the physical copy and taking your time to understand the relevence of the information in everyday life. Understanding why we behave the way we do helps you to control your impulsive responses and genuinely enjoy life more. So many interesting behavioural studies referenced. Unfortunately, I found the audio quality to be poor. Whenever he makes an 'S' sound it is piercing.

I would like it if ebooks were read by male and female voices. Hearing Will Patton as Holly was irritating tbh...Im sure a female voice immitating a male would be bad aswell.

It ended just as it started getting good.Slow pace

Narration was pretty good. There were only a few memorable moments, most of the book is character development and it abruptly ended just as things were getting good.

Very technical, brutally honest self evaluation.

Great narration and very interesting. Some of it went over my head but I still learned alot. Makes me question my own social tendances.

Too many hypethetical situations yielding underwhelming common-sense conclusions. He exaggerates deeper meaning behind basic human behaviors. Too many bible references. Few note-worthy revelations.
