I am unfairly givng the story a 1 star review because I am unable to review only the narrator. The cadence and tone of the narrator is crucial in an audiobook and this guy misses the mark by a wide margin. For such a serious title, he almost comes accross as comedic and its very off putting. I stopped it after 20 minutes andI'm asking for a refund. Very displeased with the choice of narrato in this case andI'll avoid future adiobooks narrated by Brian Emerson
Perhaps if there was a different narrator
Any truth there me in the book will be met by suspicion as the narrator portrays the message in a poor near comedic fashion. Couldn't take the message seriosly listening to this guy.
The stories contained in this book are scary because they are completely plausible. I've heard of some of the arguments for and against this book. However, there is little denying that we (USA) do many bad things. Read the book and see if you can decide if this is great fiction or some of the scariest non-fiction you've ever read.
I don't know how much of it to believe, but the book is interesting and entertaining. There are times when the author gets a bit too flowery or melodramatic in his descriptions. I did not care for the narrator and really found his style distracting. I will probably try to avoid other audiobooks by this narrator.
If the author had a mature open mind about the subject, and did lecture about how pure his thoughts and deeds were in comparison to others, it could have been more interesting. The author comes off as a snob attending a prep school, with the other callus students that didn't care about anyone but themselves. Well till he writes this book for humanitarian motives and to let the world know about the evil capitalist’ burdening the free world with modern systems, such as electricity and fresh water.I would prefer the book to be more factual about the subject less about the noble feelings of the author.
Some history book
It was very interesting to hear how our country now controls much of the world through economic slavery rather than military or physical slavery. Makes it sound scary between us and China doesn't it?
Unlike any other book.
Economic Empire building.
To understand the world around you, you need to read this one
Why he decided to confess
I would listen to this a 2nd time just to take it all in.
Great book, I would consider it a must read/listen.
I am a proud Mexican woman that loves words and reading/listening to books. I also believe that only through knowledge can we achieve progress.
It is a very interesting story and gives a lot of past information I do wish he would write another book with more contemporary information. The narration is well done.
As far as the time savings, yes. I'm not sure how to answer this question.
I liked that it was something I had to read for class and that it was in audiobook form.
There were strange pauses, or unnecessary pauses at least. Cutting down on the pauses would've knocked off a good amount of time.
No. I thought parts of it were absurd. May that's due to the fact that nothing was really set up well. The story wasn't told well.
No. Once you've heard it, you pretty much get the drift.
When he gets recruited by the NSA
It was even & easy to listen to
Get to be John Perkins' talk therapist for a day.
The parts of the book that described the economic hitman system was very interesting and enlightening. Perkins should have stuck with more of the hitman, and less of the confession. It seriously felt that the second half of the book was IN a confessional, or that you were Perkins' therapist and you had to listen to him lament his past decisions and make a plea for how to make the world better in the future.
