Heard this after checking Bill Gates list of recommended reads this summer. And with it, I visualised the whole journey. I had my moments of goosebumps, and moments when I got tearful with joy that finally some effort reached fruition for Disney, or some such otherwise trivial anecdote. The book is as well written if not more as the accomplished ‘Ride’. And the audio book does justice to this enormous saga. My recommendation: If you like to read, this is a must read. If you have never held a book in your hand out of college, start with this! If you can’t see yourself reading yet, download this audiobook.

Remarkable and curiosity arousing

I have believed all my life that those who are able to sleep less and yet perform well are Heroes. Personally, I enjoy getting up early. But this book almost made me loose my early habits! That’s how convincing it is. I have so many questions. I so wish I could somehow communicate with the author, clear my doubts. I recommend this book to everyone who cares about his/her health.

Thought provoking, very well written and detailed

I have never been interested in history. Of any kind, or anything. This book was all about history and I waited to be free enough to hear it each day! Yuval Noah Harari is in a league of his own. Goosebumps, worry, sadness, happiness, excitement of learning something new and worthwhile, anger and many more responses and emotions are invoked by this book. Also, 100% credit for excellent narration too.
