    Originally published in 1944, The Road to Serfdom has profoundly influenced many of the world's great leaders, from Orwell and Churchill in the mid-'40s, to Reagan and Thatcher in the '80s. The book offers persuasive warnings against the dangers of central planning, along with what Orwell described as "an eloquent defense of laissez-faire capitalism".

    Scott says: "Classic"
    "Monotone"

    What disappointed you about The Road to Serfdom?

    The reader, while he subject and prose were tough, it was made worse by the lack of inflection. I will steer clear of this narrator in the future.
