Summary

What if the way we understand our world is wrong? What if it isn't politicians and events that shape our lives but secret deals made by people you've never heard of?
This book tells the story of the secret deals that are changing the world and revolutionising everything we do, including money, the food we eat, what we buy and the drugs we take to stay well.
These deals never make the news: they are made high up in boardrooms, on golf courses and in luxury cars, each sealed by world-changing handshakes. This is the story of those handshakes.

I couldn't stop listening

This is like a business version of 'Sapiens' and 'Homo deus'. A must read for anyone.

increadibly well researched and enlightening

A very interesting run down of how the world is changing around us. Negatives are that the author's political leanings shine through quite often, the accents for interviews are quite gimmicky and you can get lost in the sheer amount of detail put in to this. All that aside, a great book and in need of a re-listen.

An excellent read

This content of this book is mind blowing. Well researched and excellently laid out. What lets this Audible Vernon down is the insistence on using different voices to speak as the people quoted was incredibly off putting. The accents were so bad and fake that the completely distracted from the message.
