    In A Splendid Exchange, William J. Bernstein tells the extraordinary story of global commerce from its prehistoric origins to the myriad controversies surrounding it today. He transports listeners from ancient sailing ships that brought the silk trade from China to Rome in the second century to the rise and fall of the Portuguese monopoly in spices in the 16th.

    Mark says: "Very interesting and Germane to Today's World"
    "Good book, bad narrator."
    Overall

    I'm convinced the narrator is some kind of text-to-speech software. Listen to the sample and make sure it won't drive you up the wall before buying. I found it unlistenable.
