It was a thought-provoking blend of classic wisdom (small changes and consistency yields large changes over time) with added psychology and historical examples.

A breathtaking memoir - the emotions, particularly the pondering and the anguish, were very clearly portrayed.

It is philosophically diverse - it made me think of humankind’s impact in a new light. It is less revolutionary to me, but I also think Gen Z has started to realize that the world wasn’t built for humans.

This was an outstanding read. It’s a detailed account of the rise and fall of the Sackler family. With a plethora of sources from legal proceedings, a comprehensive recount of not only the history of big pharma but also of the opioid crisis is explained with no stone unturned.

I’ve read about Theranos and never quite understood how so many high profile individuals were conned, however the documentary tells engaging and humanizing story and analysis of Elizabeth Holmes’ (and consequently, Theranos’) rise and fall. Like Calypso from the Odyssey and the Iliad which Holmes references a number of times, Holmes portrayed the benefits of Theranos while concealing it’s shortcomings on a massive scale.

WOW 🤩 I try to avoid emojis but this took my breath away - twice. The rise of Burton as a company is impressive, the rise of snowboarding as a sport is unparalleled, and the narrative of Jake Carpenter’s life is a story of relentless, wholesome passion. For anyone into snow sports (even if you’re just a skier - like me) highly recommend watching this. Carpenter’s love for boarding and life is near tangible. This is one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen.

I am not sure how true it is… I’ve found some of the sourcing to be poorly done and read criticisms by academics of the same. It’s an interesting narrative nonetheless #historical_fiction
