I listened to the predecessor of this book three times as I got so much from it and like most "sequels" I was guarded in my expectations. I still have an hour to go but have found this book equally valuable in gaining a pragmatic, no-nonsense view of who I am and who we are. Many reviewers seem to struggle with the "how to create your own religion" part and I suspect that's because it's pretty confronting for those (myself included) who grew up in a religious environment. It all rings pretty true and that makes sustaining a religious outlook pretty hard. That said, I feel at 55 I am, for the first time, clearer on how things are. I particularly like the fact that Mark draws on many sources which I fully intend to track down to learn more. A great "read"!
I tried... I really tried to give this book a shot. Half way through the book though, I couldn’t help but think that it was just the author ranting about things he randomly put together. I had to stop when he talked about the way you can create your own religion. It all became irrelevant...
There were a few parts to the book that really stood out, but as a whole the book was just OK.
The whole how to create a religion part almost lost me and just was not needed
It was okay enjoyed most of it
shouldn't of never read your own books buds I can't get pass the first chapter I really wanted to listen sad day
Interesting theory, some really catching and potentially eye opening concepts, alas sometimes lost in too much side information and examples to impact the reader/listener as they could have.
I absolutely loved this book. I found it incredibly insightful and I love that the author brought in other philosophical works and gave them greater context. For those that said they couldn't get through it, it's not for the literal concrete thinker.
Liked got a little weird at the end but still good
First book’s narrator was great. Not this one. The content of this book was ehhhh..
Dark, depressing, and outrageously cynical
Loved this book as much as his last one, will listen to it again very soon.
Absolutely loved this book! People usually shun it because of the religion part, but it’s very rich in information and important perspectives on how to view the world in a better light than it is in right now.
good one ,liked it
