At some point, about an hour in, I almost gave up on this audio book because it seemed to be dragging on. At the two hour mark I was hooked. And by the time I reached the end, I regretted not spending an extra credit for the much longer, unabridged version.
After reading the print version of Applied Economics, I was curious to know more about Thomas Sowell. This book did a great job of satisfying my curiosity. Though, maybe unintentional, the humor of Thomas Sowell had me laughing out loud many times throughout, which made this an especially easy listen. Humorous bits aside, this is an amazing story that shows what a GED (general equivalency diploma) and years of hard work might get you.
This was great!
If you enjoy Glenn Beck on the radio, then you'll appreciate the fact this book was read by Glenn himself. The narration is perfect. I was glued to his story till the very end.
I'm not the type to write a review, but, I feel this book has given me something. So, in the simple act of giving back I felt compelled to write a little something nice. My way of saying thanks.
I don't think I'll ever forget this book.
