Shameless advertisement!

An example of shameless forced advertisement. The author shameless claims of not advertising, while doing the same in every other sentence. Pathetic!
Doesn't allow you to even delete the book. It's like a bloat in my Audible library.

Better than expected

Edward Snowden refuses to be stereotyped! He comes out as a visionary, philosopher, and a normal human being, in addition to all he has been in the quest for a free and better society for everyone.

Gives a new perspective towards the way we behave, and the things we do in our daily lives.

A new insight on how to manage our indulgences.

A good book to listen to. Narrated well, though, in a low-pitch voice. Only thing I wasn't amused by was occasional attempt at giving their own reactions through laughter.

I'm just gonna take the advices in this book as another view from a very intelligent and ambitious person. Will use it as one of the many references while taking my decisions.

An honest account of events worthy of a movie.

A well organised, nicely sequenced, account of events that, jolted the silicon valley, and also to a great extent, the whole culture of startups, and people's approach and opinion towards them.
The neutral stand the author takes al along is laudable. Even portraying himself as one of the many characters, which helped beautifully articulate the transition of opinions as the events unfolded.

Liked it!

Most of the reviews suggested that, if you are an entrepreneur or want to be one, you should read the book.
Although I didn't have any plans, I decided to go ahead, and discovered that most of the lessons here are applicable to aur life. Anyways, we all are entrepreneurs of our lives.

Good advices

Books like these are like junkyard. We need to choose what we need, and be careful not to fill our space with unwanted things. There could be many areas you are already doing better at, then the way suggested in the book.
Some suggestions in this book in particular, might be silly for some people. People could like to choose to relate things to memorize, more meaningfully. Because, memories are needed to make life more relevant, rather than becoming a memory chip just to be successful.

Smart, but, small talk.

The 2nd person singular no. talk is irritating most of the times. I think it is a book for the losers. The book is simply to make money out of unintelligent, dishonest, but, "want to feel good about myself" people.
Wasn't able to finish the book. It was becoming more and more irrelevant.

A very informative read.

Gives a more comprehensive view of our time on earth. Gets boring and monotonous sometimes.
Also makes you realise that, most of the scientific facts are incomplete, or at least debatable.
