Extraordinarily funny and touching moments overwhelmed by all-too-much incivility. I understand it's his schtick and all that--but wish he could have cut out what seemed to me massively gratuitous swearing. I expect more of fellow libertarian atheists. He'd probably say "go **** yourself" which is his right. Nonetheless, it added nothing to the stories except to get the word count up.
No to author. OK with narrator but seemed there were a number of mispronounced words.
Found some of it confusing and of course all of gods children (according to most thought leaders of this movement) are Democrats. They just can't help giving grief to Thatcher and Republicans. Author should have checked out how much the average Brit's life improved under this doltish and unenlightened regime.
He also misstates and misrepresents University of Chicago economics. Friedman really is saying the market should decide because these cumulative decisions represent the optimal way for more and more humans to gain a better life. Angels in the government who launder our money and take a cut may not be as angelic as they purport as their pure motives.
Yes but less than I'd hoped.
It's possible religion is bred into us. Most of the guys who write this stuff talk about how goofy religion can be. True enough. Seemingly, none of them ever seem to question man made global warming or cooling or whatever they now call it as the biggest hoax since Saul had heat stroke on the road to Damascus and became Paul.
You may find rating contradictory: this guy is insufferable (whether Christian or Atheist). While autobiography is always about self I couldn't help noticing that as long as he got what HE wanted everyone else could take a hike--especially the long-suffering wife. Now he's started an atheist church. Sorry bub not for me. I don't need any church to understand that life is a precious gift and I will make the most of it. No need for this guy's grasping, needy and egomaniacal self.
