    America's middle class, the driver of so much of our economic success and political stability, is rapidly disappearing, forcing us to confront the fear that we are slipping as a nation - that our children and grandchildren will enjoy fewer opportunities and face a lower standard of living than we did. It's the dark flipside of the American Dream - an American Nightmare of our own making.

    The New York Times best-selling author heralds the future of business in Free. In his revolutionary best seller, The Long Tail, Chris Anderson demonstrated how the online marketplace creates niche markets, allowing products and consumers to connect in a way that has never been possible before. Now, in Free, he makes the compelling case that, in many instances, businesses can profit more from giving things away than they can by charging for them.

    The author of 12 acclaimed books, Robert B. Reich is a Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, and has served in three national administrations. While many blamed Wall Street for the financial meltdown, Aftershock points a finger at a national economy in which wealth is increasingly concentrated at the top - and where a grasping middle class simply does not have the resources to remain viable.

    Chris says: "Very plausible assessment of our economy"
    "mr reich has got it down, the truth and thats it"

    Story
    Would you listen to Aftershock again? Why?

    yes, it actually needs a second listen to see what happened and where the country is headed


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    the demise of our economy driven by greed and no thought of the average american


    Which character – as performed by Robert Reich – was your favorite?

    ---


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the whole book was very well written and moments of disappointment in the so called leadership in washington.


    Any additional comments?

    good listen, get it and dont be fooled by the spin from the greed and con bunch such as FOX news. just listen and look for facts and make your own judgement. the simple mind is what the right wants to win their votes by smoke and mirrors and outright lies. mr reich delivers with this book and more power to him!

    Here are proven methods for building an online income stream. Maybe you dream of making money with an online business, but haven’t tried so far because you’d have to quit your current job and enter the risky world of Internet startups. Or because you think you need lots of capital and way too much time. If these reasons sound familiar, Dave Lindahl and Jon Rozek beg to differ.

    What didn’t you like about David Lindahl and Jonathan Rozek ’s performance?

    a total sales page, maybe a page or two of useful info, misleading cover


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a pinata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack at it. The Germans wanted to be even more German; the Irish wanted to stop being Irish.

    Nationalist history by textbook authors and the descendants or biographers of the famous and infamous have given history students a very skewed vision of our true history - indeed, the true history of mankind. This course is designed to enlighten and encourage you to consider the factual basis of many of our most-cherished yet glossed-over stories and the real-life characters who populate them.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Boring delivery, too much like being in a class. These authors need to accept the fact that they need to stick to writing and NOT narrating the book. I have bought a lot of books that are good info but the reading is awful. Breakdown and pay an interesting reader to sell more of your books.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Not increased, but just more informed.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    boring voice, lecture lecture lecture,,,,,,aarrgh!!!


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    see above


    Do you have any additional comments?

    nope

    A practical approach to creating wealth-based on the established principles of ancient Jewish wisdom-made accessible to people of all backgrounds. The ups and downs of the economy prove Rabbi Daniel Lapin's famous principle that the more things change, the more we need to depend upon the things that never change. There's no better source for both practical and spiritual financial wisdom than the time-tested knowledge found in the ancient Jewish faith and its culture.

    Doug says: "One of the Best Books I've Yet Read"
    "Brainwashing material"
    Overall

    I bought this to maybe get some new ideas on entrepreneurship but really a brainwashing on being greedy is good. Many arguments on society has demonized business as being greedy is false. I wonder if the author believes his own lies. A definite primer for business school zombies. I wasted a credit on this pro-rich garbage.
