The reading of this epic poem was entertaining, more so due to the delightful poetry/music combination.
The poem, itself, is a great tale, and would have been much shortened by a direct reading, but the combination, which lengthened the reading, added immensely to the entertainment.
Richard Burton is a great orator, and, in itself would make this a great reading, but the addition of the background adds to his oration.

Scary, but knowledge is power!

Homo Deus gives us a look at our possible (provable?) future and all the arguments for these possibilities.
The arguments are well constructed. The results of the arguments are believable, and this leads to the “scary” part.
The future, according to Yuval, almost makes the fear around “Global Warming” seem trivial.
This is a book that gives you hours of thoughtful entertainment. I do expect the thoughtful part will continue long after it is finished.

A newer, truly Canadian satirist.

Rick reminds me of Stephen Leacock- a writer, who could take any Canadian situation from real life, and make you laugh at the incongruity of the situation.
They both make fun of us, in a nice way. They try to engage us, and in so doing so, possibly turn our thinking around and make us better Canadians.
This was a truly entertaining read, and I will not hesitate to recommend it to everyone.
