    Story
    (29)

    Prize-winning journalist Philip P. Pan offers an unprecedented inside look at the momentous battle underway for China's future. On one side is the entrenched party elite determined to preserve its authoritarian grip on power. On the other is a collection of lawyers, journalists, entrepreneurs, activists, hustlers, and dreamers striving to build a more tolerant, open, and democratic China.

    Paul says: "Great insight into changes in China"
    "THINK"
    Overall

    This showed china's shadowy past and present. although this book is very biased towards the superiority of democracy. Even though they are the same and had the same corruption in the US back in the time of standard steel and oil. I advise all to think each page they read and not make the easy conclusion.

  • The Financier

    Story

    The first in a "trilogy of desire", The Financier tells the story of the ruthlessly dominating broker Frank Cowperwood as he climbs the ladder of success, his adoring mistress championing his every move. Based on the life of flamboyant finance captain C. T. Yerkes, Theodore Dreiser's cutting portrayal of the unscrupulous magnate Cowperwood embodies the idea that behind every great fortune there is a crime.

    Peter says: "Outstanding classic, great narrator"
    "wonderfully writen"
    Overall

    This was the best book i listened to on audible and i would advice you to buy this work of art if you have a interest in the condition and rules of the financial world of long ago where politicians was cheap and capital is might and demanded complete respect
