Mark Skousen does an excellent job of bringing the history of economics to life. He weaves the lives of these great thinkers together in such an entertaining way that you don't even realize that you are listening to economics. He helps you to understand the theorists by sharing with you their personal histories. This was a great listen. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
In The Incredibles her whiney voice is cute. After 1 hour I had had enough. Just couldn't finish it.
This was just too boring to finish.
Reports come in on a daily basis of dead and wounded in Iraq. Protests come from all sides demanding that we get out and bring our boys home. Critics argue that we are just over there for the oil. So how did we end up fighting a war in Iraq? George Friedman takes us inside the Intelligence community and back to the beginnings of al-Qa'ida. To understand today's issues in the Middle East Friedman helps us to understand the history of Muslim fighters in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, Tajikistan, Somalia, Yemen, and Kosovo. He helps us to navigate the lies that are so critical in times of war. He drives home that it is a war that is being fought right here on our U.S. soil. This is a struggle that will affect all of us here in America for many years to come. This is information that every American needs to know and understand.
This is the most exciting non-fiction I have ever read. It has all the makings of a Tom Clancy novel. I had to keep reminding myself that this was real.
