The book begins with praise for Rush Limbaugh's influence on the author's father and continues extolling the merits of capitalism over a Soviet style government managed economy of yesteryear. This book might have been useful 50 years ago and will appeal now to Ian Rand devotees. The only thing less useful than no serious solutions is fantasy.
The engaging plot.
Pace and character separation
It was one of those books I couldn't quit listening to until it was over. That's the best kind.
I have not read the print version so I don't have an opinion as to the difference. I rarely read the print version if I hear the audio version.
The story of the time spent with the publisher's representative was a treat. There is a brutal reality to the book business at the point where the interest of the book stores and the book authors/publishers some together. In addition, the character of the book rep was refreshingly honest.
The book publisher's rep.
I was moved by the recommendations for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and the Dostoyevsky endorsement.
I'll remember these comments about reading for a long time.
I'm sorry to report that 2030 is 4/5th of a great book. SPOILER ALERT: The ending of the book is beyond unsatisfying. There are several timely themes that could use better resolution. But the ending with a speech full of trite rhetoric was painful to endure. I'm not one to post negative reviews, but this ending was painfully lame.
