Boring! Listening feels like a chore. I can't wait for it to be over! The narrator's voice is deep and almost monotone and almost puts me to sleep instantly. I feel like this is not even a real book, and more like it must have been created by an automated "book bot" because it has no personality. There are too many anecdotal historical examples of leaders of ancient civilizations being deceitful to achieve their goals, but barely any analysis or commentary on the part of the author. I'm glad I got this book for free with my Google credits. I don't mind that it teaches people to be lying devious disrespectful creatures. That's what I expected. But I thought that the writing would be somewhat interesting. It fails at that. I mean, it's pretty obvious that 1,000 year ago people behaved badly toward one another. Is anyone unaware of that? It was harder to enforce laws back then. It was harder to reveal to the world when someone was a scumbag. WE ALREADY KNOW THAT. All those stories are so boring. Yet the book seems to be outlining examples of all the ways this happened throughout history. This is now news. Anyone with a spec of common sense is aware of how humans were despicable throughout history. If the book were written in a more intelligent way, it would briefly mention how leaders acted diabolical in the past, AND ALSO how their actions can be applied to modern day life. But instead, it seems like this book was just mechanically churned out without any depth of thought.
