    The fourth edition of Basic Economics is both expanded and updated. A new chapter on the history of economics itself has been added, and the implications of that history examined. Among other additions throughout the book, a new section on the special role of corporations in the economy has been added to the chapter on government and big business.

    Was Basic Economics, Fourth Edition worth the listening time?

    The author discusses the law of supply and demand and other basic economic laws. It is mildly interesting, but nothing out of the ordinary. The author is obviously a fierce capitalist, but really does not give other points of view a fair review.

    Story
    (1489)

    Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

    Story
    What did you like best about Kitchen Confidential? What did you like least?

    fast moving story with lots of drugs, sex, crime and swearing is amusing for a short period of time, but then become tedious and repetitious.


    What was most disappointing about Anthony Bourdain’s story?

    No real plot involved. The basic same story is told over and over again, from restaurant to restaurant. As he notes at the end Anthony Bourdain seems to prefer chaos and dysfunction in his life. I seems like he is churning out the book chapter after chapter simply to make a buck.

    Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient - and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder.

    What did you love best about Beat the Reaper?

    It is hard to imagine that the Federal government is going to rehabilitate a cold blooded murderer by sending them to medical school. As a physician I can tell you that a number of the medical events that take place during the course of the book are very unlikely. If you don't care about this, then it is an entertaining story.
