    From the best-selling author of What's the Matter with Kansas?, a wonderfully insightful and sardonic look at how the worst economy since the 1930s has brought about the revival of conservatism. Economic catastrophe usually brings social protest and demands for change - or at least it's supposed to. But when Thomas Frank set out in 2009 to look for expressions of American discontent, all he could find were loud demands that the economic system be made even harsher on the recession's victims....

    Where does Pity the Billionaire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    one of the best. The author is extremely engaging. His data and research are impeccable.


    What other book might you compare Pity the Billionaire to and why?

    It is hard to compare Thomas Frank to anybody. He writes differently and researches differently. He really stands in the category by himself. His body of work is different than any other author that I can think of.


    Any additional comments?

    if you're a political junkie, this book is a must-read.

    Most startups fail. But many of those failures are preventable. The Lean Startup is a new approach being adopted across the globe, changing the way companies are built and new products are launched.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It is very refreshing to know that business plans aren't and shouldn't be static. They should be fluid. Great concept.
