  • 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism

    If you've wondered how we did not see the economic collapse coming, Ha-Joon Chang knows the answer: We didn't ask what they didn't tell us about capitalism. This is a lighthearted book with a serious purpose: to question the assumptions behind the dogma and sheer hype that the dominant school of neoliberal economists-the apostles of the freemarket-have spun since the Age of Reagan.

    What would have made 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism better?

    If the author didn't hide behind his understanding of the issue in order to promote his agenda. There are brief snippets that we see the author stating that we do not have capitalism, but rather than addressing that fact he is constantly setting up strawmen in order to push a story. His interpretation of history like his definition of capitalism is questionable, but he never stops to discuss, each section is a sprint in order to get to the point he can shout about how bad free exchange is. Nothing new, interesting, or true here.

    Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward - wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders - his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

    Haven't read a fantasy book in years; can't put it down.

  • The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History

    Everything, well, almost everything, you know about American history is wrong because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academic historians who treat their biases as fact. But fear not; Professor Thomas Woods refutes the popular myths in The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History.

    Gary says: "Informative, thoughtful, eye opening and funny."
    "Must read"
    Overall

    If you are interested in learning what you didn't learn, rather than wanting to read something that simply fits with your belief of history, get this book. If you're not willing to learn where your history textbooks didn't tell the whole story (or any part of the story at all), then don't listen to this book because as you can see it is very bothersome to some that don't want to have their views questioned.
