Sweig, in his usual deep and textured style, touches on all the facets of our evolving world as it hurls itself into an abyss of conflict and hatred. Except that this time, the witchhunt is against muslims, and this on a global scale. We learned nothing from the past, so we are condemned to repeat it.

Returned this inaudible book recommended by a friend.Authors should not assume they can narrate or pronounce worda properly. As for content, this is the kind of bromide talk shows a la Oprah thrive on. Not for the serious happiness seeker.

This debate from opposing viewpoints shows how, when it comes to the CIA, easy it is to muddle the history of this tragic land. The narrator, however, disappoints with his inability to pronounce names of people and places.

Harari's book is a labyrinth of arguments and counter arguments drowning in the web of 1st world biotechinfoteck mumbo jumbo. The planet earth is a very big place, with vibrant cultures not hooked to shallow narcissistic social media. People eat, dance, celebrate festivals together...and live without Zuckerberg's ether community. Nor are they looking to algirythms to help them make decisions. Written by someone who spends his life inside first world tech cocoons. Harari, it seems, has fallen victim to his own concepts and algorythms and writes from inside his silo, a dark and very narrow place. Suffocating book.

Naipaul and Vance are a formidable team in this beautifully told story of the Congo in the 70s. Well worth a read and a listen too.

un livre à savourer. En particulier, la dernière promenade est une expérience poétique éblouissante. Une méditation lyrique.

Revivifying !

A joy to listen to Campbell"s wisdom organized around the theme of a pathway for seekers of bliss. A very informative collection. All that is missing is Campbell's own voice, which is irreplaceable and irreplicable. Creates a perfect moment at the end of a busy day.
