Anyone looking to kill oneself.
Provide real content, not some BS ex post facto justification for rolling the dice in life and getting lucky with it.
Anger and disappointment. Don't get me wrong. I'm happy the author has lived such a roller coaster of a life, and he's doing well for himself. But the book is absent of content as it's just one big appeal to emotion.
The book is basically an autobiography where the author is trying to convince himself why he should feel good about rolling the dice in life.
Of course, and I will because there is so much to absorb when it comes to Mises' and the man that he was that his story is like a tuning fork for resolve and commitment to truth.
I had no idea how close we were to losing the school of thought represented by Austrian Economics until this book. Had we lost this school of thought, that may not have been the equivalent of losing the Library of Alexandria, but it would be on par with losing a section of the library. And what self respecting person in pursuit of knowledge would not fight to save such a body of works, let alone an entire school of thought? That's what Mises did for us all.
I thought the delivery was elegant and flawless.
The book has inspired me not only to make a stronger commitment to learning, but more importantly to not be so afraid to speak up and voice a contrarian position to mainstream views.
The only thing that threw me off when listening to the book were the parts in German -- which doesn't really happen that often in the book. And, needless to say, you'd get the English translation right after. However, at the time, I was confused as to why that would be in the audio book. But, looking back now, the book essentially archives these letters or quotes, which is good given that certain nuances can get lost in translation. Had I been fluent in German, I'd be more appreciative of the contrast. But, nonetheless, it still took me by surprise.
I don't usually listen to fictional narratives, but I'm so glad I did!
Yes! I liked the story so much I listened to it any chance I could get my headphones on.
Can't wait to listen to the next book.
