There were some very interesting perspectives shared within this book and some parts that weren't of interest at all. The suggested exercise to hold a cross in hand with the back of the hand pressed to the forehead, for example, was not for me.
The heavy push to come to Christianity at the end, complete with biblical verses quoted and explained was unexpected. The discussion of Christianity and atheists at the end - as if those were the only two categories - was appalling and offensive. I paid for this proselytizing?
The author had some interesting historical overviews of humanity in the past and today's current situation with the monetary system. There are plenty of other books that discuss Christianity. The come-to-my-religion hard sell inserted at the end ruined this book for me.
The narration or production was terrible. There were too many mispronounced words - whoever did the production of this audio should have corrected the narrator and had those sentences read over properly. Which is a lot of sentences in this audio book. (I recall Haight-Ashbury and the word - adage - being just two examples of mispronounced words)
If someone is going to be a narrator, they should be able to pronounce basic well known words correctly. If someone is going to produce an audio book, then watch for such errors and correct them before people buy the audio book.
