Reads more like a research paper. I learnt a lot but phased out for more than 50% as it's quite repetitive. Might be best for people researching and involved in political science rather than the casual i terested reader.

The Myth of Capitalism cover art

Well researched but solutions could've been better

The author defines the problem very well but there are a few things that could've been better.
1. More examples from the rest of the world and not just the US
2. There's a bit of a false equivalency between the far right and the left movements in the US
3. I was expecting the author to spend more time and provide more examples to how the problem of monopoly can be fixed. It was wound up in about 30 mins.

Some parts of the book were a bit dragging and philosophical. But I've been spoked by Sapiens. The content got me a bit depressed. You need to be ready for that.

Loved the book. It's for people who aren't immersed but deeply interested in geopoltics. Only problem was that audible has grouped the last 5 chapters into 1. Making it difficult to find interesting bits individually again.

The first two chapters start out with a lot of statistics and data which can be repetitive. The fourth chapter onwards become much more interesting. The book could have been condensed a bit but it was definitely worth the listen.

Wonderfully researched and ordered to tell us a story. A brilliant listen. Very glad this was my first audible book. Hope Homo Deus is as good.
