Nice optimistic book about the future

Dagogo takes you through a history of technology and it’s impact on society from ancient times to the most recent advancements. The tone of the book gave me the same feel as reading Carl Sagan’s books on science because there’s that same sense that curiosity and a pursuit of knowledge can solve people’s problems.

Excellent book

This was really a great audio book to listen that mentions great things that mankind discovered and invented in the last two centuries esp. From industrial revolution till date on machine learning AI and many more.
At one stage I felt it's a bit too much of history but then it was good to hear so many inventions and all the great people behind them.
The book gets really exciting from early 80s onwards when he talks about computers.
Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audio book.

Tribute to all the Lengedary Figures!!!!

Today, we all are living the most convenient and comfortable life of the generation and it's all because of these all legends who have given their entire life to make something for the future. This book gives me a whole lot of sense that, what would happen next now?

So many new inventions have already been made public, more to come in near future. I am thinking of what would be our life after 50 years. Absolute read to all technocrates or who loves to read about technologies. Its a book to give tribute to all the legends!!!!

I enjoyed it thoroughly and now I am going to buy the hardcover for my physical collection!

Beyond books and education.

Beyond books we read and education we receive Summary like no other.. a real new thinking. Personal touch to portions of history felt like the right place to comment on. Best are brain refreshing surprises about our own 1800 to 2019 made me feel proud and 'ooh no' while listening. And narration sounds like he is enjoying it as well.

Enjoyed listening to it

Found it very interesting - as Dagogo traces how we have reached where we are today starting from the days of the steam engine. A must read for any techno or science enthusiast. Bucketing topics by the decade was also a good approach. Awesome narration by Butler

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.

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.

Incomplete

The first two chapters were interesting but it cut off at the end of the second chapter. I'm using a brand new Kindle Fire so I doubt that it's a hardware problem.I won't buy another Audible product

Great concise of innovative ideas

I got hooked on to Dagogo on youtube cold fusion TV. He is amazing in his thought process of getting some of the greatest minds ideas for new thinking into words in this book. This book opens up a lot of question what's coming next. I strongly recommend this book for people who are inquisitive about how all the innovations came into existence.

phenomenal narrative of history

I've picked up this book after finishing Sapiens and Guns, Germs and Steel. And I was pleasantly surprised on this very unique take on the history thru the tiny stories of the great minds of the last few hundreds years. I loved the way the book ends summarising how the boulder has started rolling and picked up speed. There are many ways one can look at what's happened and what might happen in future. This one is a geek's take which I found quite inspiring and reassuring.

An inspiring look back to inspire the way forward.

A really interesting look back at poignant moments in history. A lot of well researched pieces and discovering people and moments I had never knew of before. The ones that I did know of were broadened and expanded my prior knowledge.
If you know of Cold Fusions channel I highly recommend this. I still recommend if you hadn’t. Then go look him up ‘cause he’s brilliant.

Brilliant from start to finish.

Never lost my attention. Excellently crafted review of tech from my youth through to today. Funny and engaging and above all always a clever take on things from a slightly different perspective to the one I am used to.

Highly recommended!
