The basic permise of this book is that the 1st world War didn't need to be fought. Ferguson gives ample evidence to his point that the suffering was needless and the cause pointless.

How fortunate we are

This book does a marvelous job of demonstrating how valuable true democracies are. It truly is a miracle that we have freedom and aren't serfs or slaves or second class citizens, as most people in history were.

Classic of modern literature

I always thought the hype about this book to be exaggerated, but this is a perfect metaphor for revolutions in the real world. We are only human after all and subject to the same weakness for power and affluence as Stalin, Napoleon and every other person. The only difference is that most of us aren't in the position of power. This book demonstrates marvelously the ability of power to corrupt to the core.

Beautifully explained

I went in to this book with low expectations since I study a science related subject and am already aware of the origins and applications of many concepts, but this book surprised me not only because of the beauty of the explanations and organisation, but also because of how wide the spectrum of topics is! It's not just physics or astronomy or biology, but all of it.
It truly is a short history of nearly everything!

Highly fascinating read

This was a really interesting book and should you read it, you would have lots of stories to share. There are many valuable lessons to be gained, as well. I would recommend this book in particular to those who study mathematics, but aren't really interested in the subject. Mathematics isn't about solving for x but rather about learning how to solve problems efficiently.

I couldn't stop once I started.
This book has generated great interest in intuition and it's power. Although short, it is nonetheless full of information.
Perhaps one ought to add that this intuition isn't any magical or supernatural ability, but simply due to years of experience in the field.
However, Gladwell does add that feelings of intuition can be disastrous, which possibly serves as a warning for those who believe themselves to be intuitive.

I bought this book because I heard many good reviews about it and I must say that I'm by no means disappointed. He chooses his words carefully and doesn't leave things up to misinterpretation. There's definitely something to gain by listening.
These 12 rules might sound simple and easy to explain, but there's much more to rule 1 than simply standing up straight. It's also about how it affects the mindset for example.
I can easily recommend this audiobook
