The friend that lent me this book called it “intellectual fastfood”.

Listened to the audio version which was very well done. The book gives you lots of ideas to ponder...I’m still thinking about them. Definitely worth the time to read.

The ideas in this book match up with a lot of opinions I already held, so I'm pre-disposed to like it, but I really appreciated the historical perspective, especially the fact that Nixon got a UBI bill through the house, but it failed in the senate. I had no idea we were ever that close.

This seems like a good book to hand other people who are curious why I support UBI, shorter work weeks, etc.
