You know those apps where you can listen to a 15-minute “summary” of a book, and supposed to get its essence? Well, Sapiens is like those apps for world history.

Great scholar

Prof. Moore is a very productive and brilliant scholar. His book is clearly written and to-the-point. It will help you improve your decision making and calibrate your self confidence (or lack thereof).

Far away from science, a front for disgusting agenda

Using the scientific phenomenon of groupthink as a front, the author dedicates almost entirety of this book to push his frustrated, hateful, disgusting right wing agenda. A total fail and rip off.

A superb audio book

1Q84 is a book written with superb imagination and brilliance. The simplicity of its storytelling makes the reader sink in ever more deeply into its simple yet elegant world full of magic. The story is very rich and filled with multiple layers. The characters are very well constructed and relatable. Even though, at times, it feels that everything fits together too perfectly, one never suspects the role and the place of any of the characters, even the ones that are on the sideline. The book captures the reader in an avalanche of characters, emotions, intrigue and coincidences. Even though the book loses some of its momentum towards the third book, it’s still very captivating and exciting. This book is definitely not an easy read but it is Murakami’s best works if not the best.

A dark masterpiece

This book, written with a virtuosic talent, is a dark and twisted tour de force. It shakes the reader's preformed notions or existentialist and aesthetic values. I would say that this book is for everyone, but I would say that for those who read it, their views on beauty will never be the same.

A true masterpiece

A shockingly honest and emotional tale of an era, reflected upon the lives of two aspiring artists. A must-read.

Great recording, but not Murakami’s best work

Recycling themes and stories and lengthening books are not necessarily good signs for the future path of Murakami, still a solid and exhilarating writer, even in his mediocracy.

Nice introductory book

If we ignore Kasparov's Ayn-Randishly illusioned and unquestioned admiration of the tech industry, this book is a nice read for every chess and tech enthusiast. Hearing Kasparov's thought about his second match with Deep Blue makes one think about our own future: How would I behave when faced with such a smart machine?

Some good advices, but a bit generation-specific.

My favorite part of the book: "you can't build the new Facebook if you spend your time on Facebook."
