I'm a physician and I have always been interested in reading about the 1918 influenza pandemic. As one of the other reviewers stated, only a portion of this book is actually about the outbreak. This author should have spent more time focusing on the pandemic and less time reviewing the entire history of medicine. Also, it annoyed me how the author attempted to sensationalize this subject by his endless use of graphic similies. So this book gets 3/5 stars because it is just "average."
As many of the other reviews state, it is a "common sense" approach to managing your money. So the recommendations he offers includes: don't buy cars at "buy here / pay here" car lots, don't ever do "rent to own" programs, avoid leasing cars, etc. His recommendations are TOO "common sense." So I was pretty disappointed. I was hoping more for strategies that I could use to improve my financial status. None of his recommendations applied to me. Also, I did not appreciate how he talked down to the listener. Seriously, he speaks to the listner like they are a spoiled little child. In sum, if you are like me and you don't fall for the "buy here/pay here" and "rent to own" scams, then you should look for another book on finance.
I highly recommend this book for anyone new to the field of astronomy. This book helped me fill in the gaps that I have in my knowledge of astronomy and cosmology. I will probably listen to this one many times over!
