My personal interest in the energy industry.
The creator of Exxon due to his eccentric behavior to conquer and control with his corporation at all costs.
No. Eat this elephant in small bites.
If you're already interested in how corporate america controls government policy and how such corporations are born, then this is the book for you. To the average citizen, this may put them to sleep because of the depth of detail it goes into regarding Exxon Mobil's vast history.
Personally, this filled in a lot of holes with respect to a lot of other historical nonfiction books I've read on similar subjects so it was definitely worth the listen.
Not without reading some reviews first.
Actually provide some literal research accounts and not just personal anecdotes and opinions.
Not a single account really rises to the top for me on this one. All of their fantastic accounts seem to blend together.
Yup. Read all the reviews on his other books.
I'm scientifically trained in physics and mathematics but open-minded when it comes to new material of this kind. The Divine Matrix is really just a harmless and shallow read on the topic of our daily and personal interaction with Quantum Mechanics. Braden does put forth many enlightening ideas in this book; however, his grasping logic and 'long-bow' rational left me feeling too critical of his work. If you were one of those who enjoyed reading The Secret but wanted more "science" pulled into it, then this short listen is for you.
Concisely deserved hubris.
Drift is like a History of the CIA meets a People's History of the United States of America because it covers the history of government policy with respect to defense; however, it's main demographic is would be the concerned average U.S. citizen.
I do listen to the Rachel Maddow Show from time to time. Here narrative voice is similar to the show sans the side commentary and humor (unless it's written into the text).
There was a point when the author made me realize that I'm a citizen of a nation at war, and yet, my life hasn't really changed one way or another as compared with wars in the past.
Rachel Maddow tackles subject with grace and informative humor. Drift is swift and fun if you want thoroughly answer the question in my headline stated above in about a day.
