    Even after the ruinous financial crisis of 2008, America is still beset by the depredations of an oligarchy that is now bigger, more profitable, and more resistant to regulation than ever. Anchored by six megabanks, which together control assets amounting to more than 60 percent of the country's gross domestic product, these financial institutions (now more emphatically "too big to fail") continue to hold the global economy hostage.

    Kyle says: "Easy to Understand and Comprehend"
    "Narrator is good, book is better"
    Overall

    I at first didn't like him but quickly changed my mind Now I'm almost done and the book is simply excellent and no one should avoid this material because of concerns of narration.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    Zachary says: "Matterhorn"
    "Best Audio Book I've listened to yet"
    Overall

    Not only is this book incredible, but the narrating is the best I've heard (I've looked for other books done by this guy but didn't find any). His ability to voice different characters is top notch.

    The only issue I had is at some parts the writing was so good that I wanted to be reading it to fully appreciate the authors use of language, especially the end.
