This is a wonderful book that illuminates life (especially for women) in one of the poorest countries of the world, and one man's largely successful struggle to change things. He exaggerates and misstates some things, but everybody with a conscience should read it.
A fascinating guy, and the introduction by Kris Kristofferson was wonderful.
Steve Wozniak is clearly himself in this book, a shy, puckish, kid who is still a quasi-adolescent at an advanced age. Yet he is clearly brilliant. One is amazed at the companies that turned down his design that became the Apple. A case of casting pearls before swine. Overall, a great listen.
There are a few interesting tidbits that from time to time spice up this catalog of vapid nostrums. Find something better to read about India. I highly recommend Shantaram, or something by VS Naipaul.
A great read, which uncovers many things about the world that will clarify them for the ordinary reader, and even for the ordinary economist (like myself).
Every literate American needs to read this fascinating book about Osama bin Laden, about Islam, about US intelligence, and ultimately about why our government failed us in not stopping 9/11 before it happened.
This is beautifully done, using music and other sound effects to transition from one section to another of this extremely well-written volume. But the expert in history will value it more than the amateur, for the detail will likely cause the mind of the ordinary reader to wander.
The author is right that there is much exaggeration by environmentalists. But he thinks the remedy is exaggeration on the other side. It is no help in sorting out the conflicting claims on this issue.
Everything you wanted to know about political campaigning and more. A great read.
