    What do Dunkin' Donuts, J. Crew, Toys "R" Us, and Burger King have in common? They are all currently or just recently were owned, operated, and controlled by private equity firms. The New Tycoons: Inside the Trillion Dollar Private Equity Industry That Owns Everything takes the listener behind the scenes of these firms: their famous billionaire founders, the overlapping stories of their creation and evolution, and the outsized ambitions that led a group of clever bankers from small shops into powerhouse titans of capital.

    Arman says: "Enjoyable story, not so enjoyable narration"
    "Adequate, but mostly sizzle, little steak"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The New Tycoons to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most: Anecdotes.
    Least: Lack of analysis of actual LBOs or discussion of the industry at a closer-than-macro level. I.e., the book doesn't offer detailed analysis.

    In a series of stories that are shocking, sexy, charming, and ultimately unforgettable, Miranda July explores the hearts and minds of characters who are desperate for human connection and yet don't know what to do when it actually happens.

    Xavier says: "One of the best"
    "Like David Foster Wallace"

    Story
    Would you listen to No One Belongs Here More Than You again? Why?

    Yes because Miranda July describes people's interior mental states as well as anyone besides David Foster Wallace. On that score, she's even better than George Saunders.
