    In The Real Crash, New York Times best-selling author Peter D. Schiff argues that America is enjoying a government-inflated bubble, one that reality will explode... with disastrous consequences for the economy and for each of us. Schiff demonstrates how the infusion of billions of dollars of stimulus money has only dug a deeper hole: The United States government simply spends too much and does not collect enough money to pay its debts, and in the end, Americans from all walks of life will face a crushing consequence.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Real Crash?

    The author selected and provided the data which benefit his theory, and intentionally ignored some other data. For example, he didn't say the current rich taxes are amount the lowest in the past 50-100 years. Let me add that I think he might be right on the future, but he is wrong about the reasons. Also, he completely ignored pollution, global warming (even the possibility of the global warming), etc. As an example, if the rich uses oil or cool to produce energy, the emitted CO2 would cause cancer. Why the poor should pay for his/her cancer, when possibly rich causes it? Or and the end, he said he likes countries like Australia and Norway. He didn't say about the health care or educational system in those countries.At the end, I should say that I'm not a socialist.

    Any additional comments?

    Some of his suggestions are valuable, I think. For example, the quality of most public schools are not good, or not anyone is suitable to go to a university. Also his suggestion on adding competition to public schools are useful.

  • The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 57 mins)

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    What made the experience of listening to The Power of Habit the most enjoyable?

    The book is very informative, but unlike a lot of other books this one isn't boring at all. The book is useful for anybody who wants to improve himself/herself continuously.


    What does Mike Chamberlain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I'm listening to books while driving. Thus I cannot compare those two. I can say he really did a good job.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That we can, and maybe we should, take control of our habits, by knowing them and knowing what internal or external factors may positively or negatively affect them.


    Any additional comments?

    My next book is "Your Brain at Work."
