  • Life Inc.: How the World Became a Corporation and How to Take It Back

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 30 mins)
    • By Douglas Rushkoff
    • Narrated By Douglas Rushkoff
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Douglas Rushkoff, in tracing the roots of corporatism from the Renaissance to today, reveals the way it supplanted social interaction and local commerce and came to be regarded as a preexisting condition of our world, from the history of public relations to the relentless gentrification of America's urban neighborhoods. And he shows us how to fight back: how to de-corporatize ourselves, disengage from branded expectations, think locally, and return to the real world of human activity.

    A. Yerkes says: "Accessible Indictment of the Lost American Dream"
    "Trivial and boaring"

    This is a multi-hour journalistic mishmash of history and ideology.

  • The Master and Margarita

    • UNABRIDGED (16 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By Mikhail Bulgakov
    • Narrated By Julian Rhind-Tutt

    The Devil comes to Moscow, but he isn't all bad; Pontius Pilate sentences a charismatic leader to his death, but yearns for redemption; and a writer tries to destroy his greatest tale, but discovers that manuscripts don't burn. Multi-layered and entrancing, blending sharp satire with glorious fantasy, The Master and Margarita is ceaselessly inventive and profoundly moving. In its imaginative freedom and raising of eternal human concerns, it is one of the world's great novels.

    beatrice says: "Baffling and original"

    The classic excellently performed.

  • The Modern Scholar: Ethics: A History of Moral Thought

    • ORIGINAL (8 hrs and 31 mins)
    • By Peter Kreeft
    • Narrated By Peter Kreeft

    This course addresses some of the eternal questions that man has grappled with since the beginning of time. What is good? What is bad? Why is justice important? Why is it better to be good and just than it is to be bad and unjust? Most human beings have the faculty to discern between right and wrong, good and bad behavior, and to make judgments over what is just and what is unjust. But why are ethics important to us?

    J. Maxwell says: "Surprisingly Good"
    "Religously biased"

    The author keeps on refering to or presupposing Bible and Christ. This is not what I would expect in a philosopy class and neither is this indicated in the description of the product. A credit wasted and my weakest purchase from the otherwise recommendable Modern Scholar series.

  • Sages: Warren Buffett, George Soros, Paul Volcker, and the Maelstrom of Markets

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 35 mins)
    • By Charles R. Morris
    • Narrated By Sean Runnette

    Three titans of finance predicted the current economic crisis several years ago, but their warnings went unheeded. A New York Times best-selling author distills the wisdom of all three.

    Throughout the violent financial disruptions of the past several years, three men have stood out as beacons of judgment and wisdom: Warren Buffett, George Soros, and Paul Volcker.

    William says: "Excellent story of three of the greats"
    "Nothing new under the sun"

    Neither useful nor interesting. You will likely be familiar in advance with what you get to hear in this audiobook.
