Brilliant and to the point
Great work as always by a no BS author. A must read for anyone that considers themselves successful or hopes to be one day.
This might be among the worst types of books
This is a book by someone that doesn’t write as well as he thinks he does, about ideas he holds dear without justification beyond ill-fitting anecdotes. A book about a cliche, poorly argued and even more poorly written, I’m sorry to say.
I have no skin in this review. :)
This books is worth reading, if for no other reason than exposing policy makers and others for what they are: unaffected meddlers.
In the latter part of the book, I found some of the arguments labored to the point of perhaps being poorly written and confusing. A sentence I need to read four times to comprehend seems to me to be poorly written. While that did not occur in the first several chapters, later on I found myself rereading sentences too frequently. Perhaps the author’s didactic approach to his arguments fly wore me down.
Should you read this book? Yes, it’s an interesting treatment of risks and reality that extends the author’s prior ideas. I learned a lot, and the concepts made me stop, and think (rethink?). In my opinion, that’s what a good book should do.
But then, other than the purchase, I have no skin in the game.
