Excellent book

I really enjoyed listening to this book. I expected the book to be narrated by Dagogo himself, but after going through it, they couldn't have picked a better performer. I am very familiar with most of the subject matter discussed in this book. I suspect for some, the book may feel like it's all over the place. To me the main thread was always New Thinking, if that's what you're looking for in this book. You won't be disappointed.

The research was on point and should be a guide to

The research was on point and should be a guide to constantly refer to. A sort of handbook for life with depth. The narrator Ron Butler is a legend in his own right.

I just wish I'd learned all of this at school at a young age. I congratulate Dagogo Altraide for his research a structuring. Now, lets see what the future brings

Selective and shallow

Too bad I wasted a credit on this. His manuscript needs more thorough fact checking. The book is a selective and cursory review of some of the 20th centuries more significant technological advances.

Impressos e!

I loved it. Both book and narrator are excelent!!! It really made me want to be part of this history, as a "new thinker". I'm glad to live nowadays and to have the chance of seeing and using those things. Thank you for the book! What an experience! I loved that you seemed to know exactly everything you would write, because everytime that's a note like "we will discuss this later", and I imagine how hardware was that. Also, the book os extremely comprehensible. I didn't know anything about those technologies, however, this wasn't a problem. I've learned a lot! Thank you again!!!
