's review

liked it

I would have enjoyed this much more if I had read it rather than listened to it, I think. I made it through disc 12 (out of 16) and just couldn't hack it anymore. There are numerous references to a PDF that helps illustrate various points and several breakdowns of numbers/figures that are just difficult to follow when you are listening and cannot stop to visualize. I found it all really interesting and the implications of all of our many inherent biases alarming. I am probably just getting defensive (I'm a fallible human, after all), but it's kind of a nonstop barrage of "ya big dummy! quit thinking you know anything!" which can be exhausting. I mean I get that I'm constantly misunderstanding and/or underestimating situations, but hearing about it over and over was just exasperating at times. Maybe I'll just keep all my little biases and hold them close like the warm blanket they are.
