  • Gilgamesh: A New English Version

    This brilliant new treatment of the world's oldest epic is a literary event on par with Seamus Heaney's wildly popular Beowulf translation. Esteemed translator and best-selling author Stephen Mitchell energizes a heroic tale so old it predates Homer's Iliad by more than a millennium.

    George says: "A defense of this "translation""
    "a great story"
    Overall

    One of the best audio books. I enjoyed essay written on the topic by the writer.

    A great book to read, must say that the essay written is a great philosophical narration.

    While free markets have brought positive change, traditional capitalism cannot solve problems of inequality and poverty because of its view of people as solely profit-driven. In fact, humans have other drives and passions, including spiritual, social, and altruistic.

    Overall

    A great book to read. I have read authors prevouse book called bankers to poors. Both are insight into todays micro and macro economics.

    The narratortion of this book is of very bad quality. The reader is not reading the book , he is giving a lecture. He is slow and boring.

    The prevouse book quality is so good that it feels like you are driving on a smooth road the ipod is in your car and the information is downloaded to your cortex through a cable/DSL modem. This book is something like you are downloading through a 56k old modem. So slooooooooowwww.

    still worth listening to.

    In 1983, Muhammad Yunus established Grameen, a bank devoted to providing the poorest of Bangladesh with miniscule loans. Believing that credit is a basic human right, not the privilege of a few, Yunus aimed to support that spark of personal initiative and enterprise by which the poor might lift themselves out of poverty forever. Grameen Bank now provides over $2.5 billion in micro-loans to more than two million families in rural Bangladesh.

    Randall says: "Will change the way you think about the economics."
    "compassion has no limits or boundaries"
    Overall

    Professor Yunus works are inspiring especially to those who cares for less fortunate ones. I could not shut off my ipod until I heard the whole narative. Excellent writing and narration.

    This book is recommended to those who dream of a better future for all man kind. " In educated society povertiy should be found in museums where we could tell our children, why and how our ancestors let it infest us for centuries."
