Most people have no idea what is really happening in the world of money and why. This book lifts that veil and exposed the age-old tug-of-war between "currencies" and "real money".
The only other book that has had a bigger impact on my investment choices, was Rich Dad Poor Dad.
Where the author describes how the Roman Empire was REALLY destroyed and how the same scenario is building up to repeat itself in the near future.
As the currency vs gold mistakes of yesterday were pointed out, I could not help but laugh at how current & relevant in today's world they still are. Our politicians & bankers the world over are doing it AGAIN.
If the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over & over expecting a different result, then I'm afraid the world has been insane for centuries. This book shows this insanity in it's truest colors and gives the reader/listener the chance to make sane investment choices.
The time-setting of the story, where humanity is a space-faring race exploring the galaxy, as is inevitably our destiny. I very much enjoyed the re-awakening of the warrior spirit of the human race in the face of overwhelming odds & a terrible foe.
The narrator also had a real talent for making the different characters "sound" different.
Not a book, but a TV Series that I enjoyed very much: Stargate Universe. I think that the Koban Series would make a fascinating TV Series & do hope that it gets there.
Where the human's were being battle-tested & the enemy got more than they bargained for from mere "animals". Making the listener think that the "human clan leader" had perished for a while was a good twist.
Yes, absolutely. It was hard to pause, go to sleep & wait for my next opportunity to listen further.
I found this audio-book by chance but must say, it was a real pleasure to listen to. I couldn't wait to download the second book. I appreciate the research into actual science (biological & theoretical physics) the author must have done. All of the technological advances explored in the book are plausible considering what scientists are already working on today. I like my sci-fi with a healthy dose of realistic & this book managed to pull off.
interesting, yet dissapointing
some of characters I liked in the first two audio-books re-appeared, yet very superficially
the bar-fight towards the end
not this time. I expected much more
Compared to the previous two audio-books, Koban Universe was too short & left too much unexplored. I expected more about what happened in the war effort now that the Kobani's had jump-capable ships.
