    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    "Ughh!!!"
    Overall

    Not my kind of war story. I consider myself well learned on war in general, including the plight of POWs. I have read enough literature on just about all aspects of war. So that is why I chose this book. To me it just droned on and on. I could not wait for it to end. this is my critique on the book itself, not the realities it tries to portray. A lot of folks like it apparently, not me.

    Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) and Friedrich Hayek (1899-1992) were perhaps the foremost defenders of the free market and limited government during the mid-twentieth century ascendancy of Keynesian economics.

    I bought the audio book because I am a believer in the Austrian School's philosophy and wanted to learn more. I will agree that the content is informative and enlightening. I would have preferred that Louis Rukeyser did all of the reading rather than inject other voices with thick accents that sometimes makes it difficult to understand. My rating is for the content of the book only . I wish there was a separate rating system for the verbalization component of audio books.
