The Wizard and the Prophet

This is my book of the year.

It delivers on so many things that we want a book to do–it could never be replicated by a website or even a film.

The audiobook is even better… It’s engaging, powerful and resonates really deeply.

Mann has given us a deeply researched narrative, a book that will change the way you see just about everything in the natural world and its relationship with humanity. It’s about an epic struggle and mostly, about our future.

It seems to be about two obscure characters of the 20th century, but it’s not. It’s about each of us and the tools we can choose to bring with us to the future. I found myself switching camps every few minutes.

I am taking notes on every page, and I mention the book in most of the conversations I have.

Definitely a fine use of your time and attention. I’m glad books like this persist in a world that’s in too much of a hurry to get the tldr.
