    1. The book is very informative and I really liked some parts, but it was a very difficult read Why Because Yudkowsky simply LOVES beating a dead horse There s just too much repetition and sloppy writing, although the ideas are great.It s just It ought to be concise and clear.


    2. Having now read EVERY post by Eliezer Yudkowsky on Less Wrong, I can say I have thoroughly enjoyed it and benefitted immensely The Sequences are a smaller portion conveying many important ideas, but by reading all the posts you get a stronger sense of direction, and see where all of the philosophy leads to.Incredible ideas, by an incredible thinker.


    3. This one was really hard to rate as my reactions to each post and sequence varied from jeez, this just nailed it to meh, why are you explaining the same thing over and over again I admit only skimming through many of the metaethics sequence posts and might have given four stars if that one was left out My rating doesn t reflect on how much I appreciate the writer doing and writing what he does it IS important trying to explain things out in various ways, even for the people with creationist view [...]


    4. This is about how to overcome bias, which is really important in order to take good decisions, so I recommend it to most people And it s well written, so it s fun to read The first sequence was about bayesian probability, which is something I already knew about since I study physics engineering, but I ve still learned new things And in the other sequences, I m definitely learning a lot.


    5. As it is impossible to finish these things re reading has to start even before one reaches the end I arbitrarily pronounce them read now.




    6. This is the book that has had the largest impact on my life I want people to read it Especially those who want to save the world.


    7. A truly well written and organized collection about how to inspect your own mind from the inside Reading this has enriched me greatly.
