This book is essential to making healthy and thriving new humans. Lily Nichols did such an amazing job at compiling and communicating the research showing evidence for whole food, and natural sources of nutrients. I will absolutely recommend this to all the ladies I know who want to have babies.
The author manages to stay engaging all along, which can be challenging for a nutrition book.
It's a great way to connect with yourself when preparing to be a mother.

I really appreciate the content of the book, it is thorough in reviewing differences between Igen, millenials and boomers, and does a good job at backing the data with testimonials. It has great insights on understanding a new generation and helps bridging a gap.
However I found the writing quite typical of an academic. If there is a PDF with the book, I did not find the figures cited as supporting material, which made the delivery of numbers and facts more tedious.
I did not find the writing compelling, and the narration did not help. The reading did not make the overall presentation more engaging.
I recommend the book for the value it brings, but would maybe get the hard copy instead of the audio version.

Stimulating, clear, and nicely written. It's really great when scientists can write and Carlo Rovelli is one of them. i would say it's the right balance between physics and philosophy.
And having Benedict Cumberbatch as a narrator makes this book so pleasing to listen to.

I am grateful for David Goggins sharing the story of his life. It's the support to becoming my true self I haven't found in friends. it's the example of what is possible when you push throughthe pain.
I love that David Goggins and Adam Skolnick have included challenges at the end of each chapters, as they are a call to action and practical tools to everyone who are interested in bettering themselves and discover how much they're capable of. I also love the raw tone. there is no sugar coating, David Goggins doesn't try to spare your feelings and truth is the only way you can start a journey to be your best.
I will recommend this book for inspiration and self development.

In a dense work that carefully stacks different layers of the human psyche, from neuroanatomical structures to philosophical and psychological perspectives. Jordan Peterson exposes archetypal concepts that have been forgotten or overlooked by the modern mind. Using the commonalities of myths throughout cultures and history, as well as ideas formulated by Nietzsche and Jung, he puts Truth and the individual as the creative forces that move mankind forward.
The language is precise but very dense and makes the audiobook version a bit daunting. I have played and replayed parts of it to absorb each word.
I think it's a book to go to when in face of too much chaos in your life, when in despair, when you need to make sense of existence and your place in the world.

Scott Adams' life is a fun and funny story of accumulating a wealth of knowledge amidst a series of failures. Would have been great to have him narrate as a crowning achievement to the entire story arc.

Simultaneously heart warming and heart wrenching.

Nobody in mainstream media discussing '12 rules for Life' likes to address the core tenets of this book: family, community, and honesty. Instead, they go for vain attempts at "gotcha journalism", with the intent to publicly scalp the author. Pathetically highlighting the importance and potency of his book's message against our modern malaise.
