    Would you consider the audio edition of The Elements of Investing to be better than the print version?

    We should listen to this audio when we're 20s years old.
    I'm afraid I'm 49 years old. It's a little bit late.

    When 14-year-old Mattie Sullivan asks Spenser to look into her mother’s murder, he’s not completely convinced by her claim that the police investigation four years ago was botched. Mattie is gruff, street-smart, and wise beyond her years, left to care for her younger siblings and an alcoholic grandmother in a dilapidated apartment in South Boston. But her need for closure and her determination to make things right hit Spenser where he lives - they’re the very characteristics he abides by.

    Ed says: "Ace aces Spenser!"
    "This is new Spenser."

    What did you love best about Robert B. Parker's Lullaby?

    Spenser came back.


    What about Joe Mantegna’s performance did you like?

    He is always excellent.


    Any additional comments?

    There is something different from Robert B. Parker's original Spenser, I feel.

    On location in Boston, bad-boy actor Jumbo Nelson is accused of the rape and murder of a young woman. From the start the case seems fishy, so the Boston PD calls on Spenser to investigate. Things don't look so good for Jumbo, whose appetites for food, booze, and sex are as outsized as his name. He was the studio's biggest star, but he's become its biggest liability...

    Would you listen to Sixkill again? Why?

    Yes. This is not the last Spencer Novel, but Robert B. Parker's last one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sixkill?


    Any additional comments?

    I will miss Robert B. Parker's Spencer.

    The dire economic situation we find ourselves in is not a result of economic forces alone, but of the policies pursued, and not pursued, by world leaders. In this collection of his recent writings on the global financial situation, George Soros presents his views and analysis of key economic policy choices leading up to, during, and following the financial crisis of 2008-2009.

    What made the experience of listening to Financial Turmoil in Europe and the United States the most enjoyable?

    Many people talk about those financial crisis that we are witnessing.
    This audiobook tells us how to understand the crisis philosophically.
    The author always tells us "We are not perfect." It is true, I guess.
    The book is the best guide tells us how to live in an uncertain world.

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Boomerang the most enjoyable?

    Please don' t worry, because US economy will be back soon.
    We are living in 21 century. It is not a good idea, if you think US economy is declining.
    The world can't live with the economy.
