Revealing account of how important privacy was and still remains in our life. Through this book Edward snowden has summarized the importance of data. Finishing the book kind of numbs one into thinking the various ways people, organisations and institutions pry open the 'individual' for their own goals. He clearly and emphatically builds his case for his whistleblowing , and tugs the inner soul of 'individuals' that yearns for freedom.
Kudos to the great champion of privacy who put his and his family's life for a principle.
Don't miss this one.

Exceptional.

A good book which makes you think. It makes you think seriously of what we take for granted that the poor have to decide for themselves. The ideas discussed were good and examples better.
Furthermore, the only takeaway that we need to listen to the poor and shed our own ideologies rings true.
Overall a great listen.
Be sure to get your copy!

Thoroughly loved thw story and the performance. The author had a real difficult life, but somehow she lived it and was transformed, through education. It tells the story of the faint call we have in our bosom. It tells the story of making something out of nothing. It tells the story of education, mind over brain.
Get educated.

A take on Ramayana by Devdutt pattnaik, that blows your mind. The philosophical depth is immense and the pointers provided are important to anchor the tale in it's right context. A great listen.
The performance of Suyash Mohan is good, though he mispronounces some of the names, which can be overlooked for his rendition of various characters is great.
Do listen to this great epic...

During the course of years, I have had the opportunity to read several self help books, However this book is different.
It is a store house of knowledge of how to practically apply the changes. Plus, it does it all remaining in the ambit of human nature and psychology.
The performance by James clear is amazing and his voice makes it all the more enjoyable. Planning to re-listen the production and get the hard copy to make the ideas more concrete and actionable.
Don't give this book a miss...

A thriller that goes on to create an epic.

Absolutely loved the story and the narration. The story was evenly paced and climaxed well, though the profusion of names seems confusing sometimes.
A recommended listen.

A good book with some helpful tips. I especially enjoyed the chapters where the link and development of Insulin resisitance to obesity is described.
The narration was ok, with occasional errors in pronunciation, though that is a pretty subjective issue.
Go for the book for some practical tips to improve your well being.

"Becoming" tells the story of change and how to find oneself in the process.
Narrated magnificently by Michelle Obama, it opens the door to her life and all those near to her.
Her narration of her formative years stands out from the other parts and you can really feel for her friend Suzzane.
Overall a great listen.
Give it a shot, you won't regret your decision.

Now this was my first audiobook and what a blast it was. Lilly singh is charming and hillarious throughout. Seriously, she has the energy of a nuke and the charm of a brook.
The best part of this book was the narration by the author, making it feel all the more real. The "out of the blue" parts were the best and were pretty emotional. The chapters are short and concise and pretty relatable if you've read a few self help books.
But it was set apart by the extra energy and vigor of lilly.
I would definitely give this audiobook several reads because a Bawse takes time and hustle to slay.
Get a copy, guys. You'll definitely be entertained and will know so much more.
