The book is not a true reflection of the great mind that is Bishop Jakes. Perhaps the least impressive of all his books that I have read. The reader wasn’t helping matters either. I struggled to finish reading and that has never happened when I read Bishop Jake’s books.

In Sapiens, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical - and sometimes devastating - breakthroughs of the cognitive, agricultural, and scientific revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, paleontology, and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities.

In this moving collection of thought-provoking essays infused with her unique wisdom and deep humor, Union tells astonishingly personal and true stories about power, color, gender, feminism, and fame. Union tackles a range of experiences, including bullying, beauty standards and competition between women in Hollywood, growing up in white California suburbia and then spending summers with her black relatives in Nebraska, coping with crushes, puberty, and the divorce of her parents.

Been a fan but can now say ‘ pleased to meet you ‘, excellent delivery you can tell she brought in her theatrical prowess along. The story seems to go back and forth but still a good read.

Very difficult to chew. Not easy to listen too. There appears to be substance but was not passed across effectively. Was a waste of my money.

One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.
