Boring. Trivial mostly well known information. The voice sounds automated. Very broad with little depth.

There was some interesting crypto but the story was all over the place and so much didn't matter at all that It was hard to really enjoy this.

The author is somewhat hypocritical and doesn't look at base rates amd denominators enough but the examples make for interesting stories.

Good first half.

The first half is really good because it talks about real work. The second half is ramblings from a teenager that watches too much Sci-fi.

It went nowhere. It was like listening to Seinfeld but if Seinfeld took place during the holocaust.

75% of this story has no significance. The characters are irrational. The ideas are very dated.

This book comes off as more of a list of problems with Theranos than a story but it's still very engaging.

Hard to follow because the characters keep changing. It's hard to tell what's significant. There are better modern sci-fi stories.

Everyone should think like this.

Some equations and numbers are hard to follow while listening but the idea comes through if you listen.
