Well, someone finally tells me why "W" managed to get elected. The theory is that Republicans have been connecting emotionally with the electorate and the Democrats have been talking issues. Emotions rule. Makes sense to me. Since I listened to this book, I've been watching the primary campaigns--looking for strategies mentioned in the book. If you are interested in politics and the coming campaigns, you ought to buy this book.
A very interesting book that shines light on Wall Street's dirty little secret. They are skimming off billions of dollars through small fees charged to investors in mutual funds. The reason they can get away with this is that fund ownership is so disperse, individual investors have no control. Ownership has been divorced from management. If you invest in a mutual fund, you ought to read this book.
Ah, evolution at its finest. If you don't like the theory of evolution, this book isn't for you. The author goes out on a limb on most of his theories, but then again, he isn't writing a scientific paper. He finds interesting connections that make the reader consider exactly what it means to be a human being. Eight percent of our genetic code comes from viruses, we all have epigenes that are influenced by our environment, did the 14th century plague affect our genetic heritage, what is the relationship between diabetes and climate change--these are only a few of the interesting things you will find in this book. This is such a good listen, and has so many interesting concepts, I think I will have to buy a hard copy of the book.
