    These selections from the many writings of Thomas Sowell over a period of half a century cover social, economic, cultural, legal, educational, and political issues. The sources range from Dr. Sowell’s letters, books, newspaper columns, and articles in both scholarly journals and popular magazines. The topics range from latetalking children to tax cuts for the rich, baseball, race, war, the role of judges, medical care, and the rhetoric of politicians.

    What did you love best about The Thomas Sowell Reader?

    I loved the way Robertson Dean reads this just like he completely comprehends it all. Thomas Sowell is genius with a side of chips! He's very witty, too. I'm listening to this collection of articles and essays for the second time!


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The logic behind the thinking process is very compelling. When I listened to it the first time I kept saying,


    What about Robertson Dean’s performance did you like?

    He actually reads this very much the way I could hear Thomas Sowell read it.


    If you could give The Thomas Sowell Reader a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Logical Thinking for and Increasingly Illogical World.


    Any additional comments?

    I just bought one of his audio books on economics! Does that make me a nerd? I don't care!

    Sam Vimes is on a well-deserved holiday. But for the commander of the City Watch, a vacation in the country is anything but relaxing. The balls, the teas, the muck - not to mention all that fresh air and birdsong - are more than a bit taxing on a cynical city-born and -bred copper. Yet a policeman will find a crime anywhere if he decides to look hard enough, and it’s not long before a body is discovered, and Sam - out of his jurisdiction, out of his element, and out of bacon sandwiches (thanks to his well-meaning wife) - must rely on his instincts, guile, and street smarts to see justice done.

    What did you love best about Snuff?

    Like Mr. Pratchett, Sam Vimes is my favorite Discworld character. I love to see Vimes out of his element. It's so interesting and real, the way he uses what he knows in alien situations.


    What does Stephen Briggs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Stephen Briggs absolutely "gets" all of the characters in the Discworld books. He comprehends them and then he shows them to you. He makes me feel like I could meet these people on the street.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could listen to this book in one sitting.
