Malcolm Gladwell himself reading and presenting the material.
No but it made me think. Long and hard. I plan to listen to it again soon.
Only heard the audio version
Only the ones who can tolerate listening to an alternate viewpoint.
A liberal's view on why the 2nd amendment should be repealed.
Overall an excellent perspective from a rational liberal (yes they actually do exist - LOL!). There is considerable foul language in this audio book but it is part of artistic nature of this essay. It is used for shock value to emphasize points the author is attempting to get across. Although I disagree with both his conclusions and selected use of data, the author makes some interesting points. There are a number of times throughout the essay where the author displays his ignorance on some basics of firearms. The clip/ magazine terminology is one. The intentionally inaccurate and derogatory of automatic weapons vs. semi-automatic.is another annoying thing. His focus only on "gun violence" vs "non-gun violence" grossly mis-characterizes the point on the argument of "culture of violence". There is more to violence than just firearms.
As the point of this review is to deal with the art vs. the facts, I will stop here and recommend that both blue bloods and red necks take 45 minutes and listen to Mr. King's thoughts on this topic.
It was better for me as it forced me to listen to details, which were a huge part of this series.
Hamish, he foretells what happens to most of the Hunger Game winners.
Yes but not sure I could describe it without revealing important plot points.
Both the story and narration were great.
