    For many people, Beethoven is the greatest composer who ever lived. In this portrait-in-sound, actors' readings combine with his music to reveal a titanic personality, vulnerable and belligerent, comic and tragic, and above all, heroic.

    Overall


    This is true biography in the language of the subject: music. To paraphrase the above quotation: “The Proper Study of Music Is Music.”
    There are biographies of composers which describe their lives ad infinitum and give endless details ad nauseum. They are better than nothing, but this biographer knows his subject better: Beethoven's life is described in words and music.
    Here is the highest accolade: the biographer's motive is pure.

    At the dawn of the 21st century, China has emerged as the "factory floor" for global production, providing the world with cheap goods at low prices. However, there is a very steep price to pay for these low-budget consumables - a price that very well may have dire consequences for the health and security of the planet. In this eye-opening series of lectures, business professor and best-selling author Peter Navarro dissects the coming China wars and their implications for all mankind.

    "Fear of the Truth"
    Overall

    It is a time-honored and oft-used method to restore peace of mind in the face of a disturbing report: deny it and criticize the source.
