Publisher's Summary

Note to Listeners:

This is an unofficial summary for COVID-19: The Great Reset, by Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret, designed to enrich your listening experience.

COVID-19: The Great Reset, by Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret, begins with a reflection on how COVID-19 has triggered a worldwide crisis, not just through the tragic loss of life that it has incurred, but also on economic systems and the vulnerability of human life itself. It has caused, above everything, a global existential crisis that is likely to impact life, as we know it forever. Despite our most fervent hopes, we will not return to normal, as we know it, whatever our beliefs and concerns about the draconian measures employed to keep the virus contained. Things will necessarily change, whether we want them to or not.

However, the authors add a note of caution when it comes to discussions about what might happen and what will happen as the world reopens. Many of the changes and movements already in place, for better or worse, will have been exacerbated by the pandemic, and divisions that were but fissures before may now open up to great chasms.

The chapter goes on to look at the role of pandemics and viruses in the history of the world. To put it in perspective: viruses have been on the earth for at least 300 million years, whereas humans have only been here for a fraction of that time, about 200,000 years. It is hardly surprising to find that an era without a pandemic is something of an anomaly, and the authors point to the diseases that have ravaged the world and shaped recorded human history. They look at the Plague of Justinian in the 6th century, the Black Death, and the germs that obliterated the Aztecs and the Incas when introduced by the European settlers.

Even some of the terminology around, how we treat and control viruses comes from treasured sacred texts: 'quarantine,' for instance, comes from the Italian 40, referring to the 40 days of purification during the biblical flood. Viruses have caused suspicion and death, too, such as the case of the massacre of 1000 Jews in Strasbourg in 1349, which were believed by some to be causing the spread of plague.

But though many are keen to build a comparison with viruses of the past, the truth is that what we face now is unprecedented. For one thing, the world is more interconnected than it has ever been before, which is at once a blessing and a curse. A blessing because we have the might of all the world's best medical research at our disposal, and a curse because the nature of this globalized world means it is easier than ever before to spread such viruses.

anti-vaxxers are not crazy

So the book was published July 2020. Most of not all of the prediction he stated have happened or are in the works as I type. The reasoning as the author has labeled it I am not totally convinced. and no reasonable person would be. But no lies where told as it unfolded at a time when the author had no way to know unless they had a extremely intimate understanding of the workings of government any economies. Good read

Klaus, who is “we”

Only read this crap if you want to know exactly how Klaus is spearheading the removal of capitalism for communism. None of you will own anything so complain to the state/government about everything. Hope that works for you. It worked well for DMV. Also check cspan’s coverage of the Milkin institute just months before Dec 2019.

Klaus doesn’t need silly voting. He has a plan that makes your life and hard work irrelevant. Lay back, here it comes!

False premise

Klaus Schwab falsely presumes that COVID-19 was hatched in nature, and goes on to say that we can expect more viruses as man and nature interact.

The evidence as to the epicenter of Covid 19 and its origins points more to the virology lab in Wuhan, China vs a bat.

Dr. Anthony Fauci perhaps can share more insight into this but of course he seems to have misplaced his notes on what he and his colleagues were up to in that lab in the several years leading up to the outbreak.

In addition to this book I strongly recommend readers also take a look at the book recently published by Robert F Kennedy Jr. (a lifetime democrat, so not politically motivated) called The Real Dr. Anthony Fauci which chronicles his career from 1985 with the NIH to the present and the incredible conflict of interest that exist in the positions he has held and the clinical studies favors he has passed along to his big pharma friends who have padded his income far beyond his $438K government salary.

The more one peels the onion back on this the more rotten it is.

Here’s a great question.
Since the outbreak Why was Dr. Anthony Fauci so against therapeutics and immune boosting / preventative measures from the start ? Notice that any drug that was generic was forbidden to be prescribed by doctors by the FDA (Dr. Fauci’s puppet, which most are unaware of) and all Fauci would say when asked was “We don’t have enough data, so don’t try it, the vaccine will stop the virus”.

And as we have now seen the vaccine neither stopped the spread of the virus to vaccinated people nor did it stop the virus from infecting a vaccinated people.

And yet the evidence was overwhelming in so many other countries that the genetic drugs hydroxychloroquine (and others) are incredibly effective at reducing the effects of Covid if taken in the early stages of infection.

We should All be outraged after looking back on all of this.

Very disappointed!

I can't believe I wasted one of my credits on this garbage! You would think that a guy who created the WEF would have a bit more to say about his coveted Orwellian nightmare reset...

Very Low Price. Very Low Quality.

I was hopeful this would be like a Cliff Notes experience. But this was a waste of time.

Wooden beyond belief

An interesting and highly relevant book destroyed by an appallingly tedious narration. Was the reader human or some form of voice synthesis? Avoid.

unable to listen as the narrator is a computer or a human who doesn't know how to talk like a human.

Great narration of audiobook

What I liked about this audio book was the narration. The narrator did a really great job as he kept me engaged and I was able to follow the book while doing household chores.
However the dystopian content of the book, I wouldn't exactly call it "enjoyable".

Worst narration in the history of audiobooks.

I enjoy +40 audiobooks every year and have done so for a good few years now but this is without doubt the worst narration that I’ve ever heard. I honestly don’t know if it is AI or whether they taken the individual words spoken by the narrator that have no relationship to each other and then just arranged them into a sentence. It is the most buzzard narration that I’ve ever heard. Alternatively the narrator was as high as a kite and literally forgot about intonation, sentence structure, logic and the fact that he’s actually speaking to a human.

Useless

Useless to listen to. It’s just simple conclusions that anyone can draw of what MIGHT happen. It does not give a proper summary, it does not give clear details on what the book is about.

Good overview of the book

I have read the book and listened to this audiobook, and although this doesn give you all the details , it gives you a good sense of what the book is about. Only thing I didn't like was the many times he would refer to the book name and it's authors, like reminding the listener. That was not needed, and it was done at least 6 times.
