I might go back to certain sections of the book, but once was enough to listen from beginning to end.
One of the best overviews of the foundations of liberty and freedom from the minds of the last 400 years.
If you want to know about liberty; why it is important; how it manifests; its strengths and weaknesses; then this is the place to start.
Comprehensive, hopeful, a must-read for anyone interested in the philosophy of liberty and freedom!
The thoroughness of the overview is excellent.
Yes, this narrator is consistently solid and enjoyable.
I found the entire presentation and content excellent.
The Cato University home study course is a sure way to learn the basics about libertarian ideas as they developed throughout history. It is a good start for novice or beginner libertarian and a great review for this radical anarcho-capitalist. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about liberty and have a better grasp on the subject matter. The narration was well done but the quotes read by the voice actor in the accent of said thinkers was not that necessary. I get it Bastiat was a French and Mises was Austrian but do I really need to hear their quotes in accents of English speakers from said countries? Other than that this is a great resource for students of liberty.
I wanted very much for this to be a great book. The topic is so important that I wanted an in-depth presentation so I could better understand the issues involved. Well, the issues were presented in an indepth manner but I struggled and preservered through the first several hours and just gave up. I have two graduate degrees so it was not a matter of the material being beyond me. It was just a matter of the book being boring. The narration was flat and the presentation of the material was more suited to an academic report being read in a graduate class. I'm sorry but I just could not endure any more. I tried. :(
