  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"

    Overall

    Well thought-out book, written in a flowing and entertaining way, well read by the author... even if you don't 100% agree with everything said, you will find much value here!!

  • Defending the Undefendable

    Professor Block's book is among the most famous of the great defenses of victimless crimes and controversial economic practices, from profiteering and gouging to bribery and blackmail. However, beneath the surface, this book is also an outstanding work of microeconomic theory that explains the workings of economic forces in everyday events and affairs.

    Story

    The authors showed fundamental misunderstandings of Libertarian and Austrian philosophies. This is a great pity, as the foundational precept (finding people villified by society for performing useful, even vital, functions, and showing why society is wrong) is desperately needed, and offers huge scope for productive writing. By aiming for shock value rather than sound reasoning, this book will put people off these parallel philosophies just when the world needs them most..

    The lack of intellectual rigor here doesn't leave much hope for future books by these authors.

  • Rogue Economics: Capitalism's New Reality

    Story
    (4)

    Economist and syndicated journalist Loretta Napoleoni argues that the world is undergoing rapid and unexpected great transformations fueled by what she calls rogue economics. Eagerly awaited around the world (translation rights have already been sold throughout Europe, Latin America, and Southeast Asia), Napoleoni's account is based on top-to-bottom primary-source interviews from banking executives in New York to Russian prostitutes to London morgue workers.

    Ann says: "Outstanding"
    "Rogue Economics"
    Overall

    Poorly researched Marxist rant. The half hour I listened to it (until the factual errors and logical inconsistencies became more than I could bare) is half an hour I won't ever get back. It is incomprehensible that some people still view Soveit Russia as a workers' paradise!

    Overall

    An acceptable story line was let down by mistakes in the reading by the narrator that could easily have been editted out... disappointing lack of professionalism.
