    Story
    (48)

    In this devastating critique of the mindset behind the failed social policies of the past thirty years, Thomas Sowell sees what has happened not as a series of isolated mistakes, but as a logical consequence of a vision whose defects have led to disasters in education, crime, family disintegration, and more.

    Steve says: "Listen to Thomas Sowell and your brain will grow"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Vision of the Anointed the most enjoyable?

    The organization and logic of his ideas, observations and principles make Thomas Sowell the greatest proponent of freedom alive today. Many think he speaks of economics but he reveals the threats to freedom by the elitist in our government and other institutions.


    What other book might you compare The Vision of the Anointed to and why?

    Intellectuals and Society, by Thomas Sowell


    What does Tom Weiner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    great voice

    When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, "I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me."

    M. Kuhnert says: "Moving"
    "The most compelling book I have ever listened to."

    If you could sum up Fearless in three words, what would they be?

    The most revealing story of a soldier I have ever listed to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment when Adam Brown's wife is informed of his fate move me to tears and downright sobbing.
