China seeks a global monopoly in rare earth minerals to secure economic hegemony.
The book could be better organized. As well, much of its stems from research by Australian and US academics in the field of strategic trade theory. Although their logic appears sound, at first blush, they are not examining the deep economic costs and risks of China's position.
It was a drawn out magazine article not a book.
Excellent but tending toward
hagiography. No mention of failings or lack of insights. However an excellent read and a great audio book.
Great literature offers insight into the human condition. Although trading, in markets, streets and financial markets, is a basic of civilization, little has been written about it. This book is timeless because it explores the discipline and focus required to make a living trading.
The narrative helped me to to recall the behaviour, discipline and nerve necessary to make successful trades. There is nothing like it and I never want to do it again. The book outlines the mindset necessary to run a scalping business in boarding school, the street corner or on the trading floor. It is a rare, and inglorious state of mind that has is almost never explored in literature. In Shakespeare, Shylock is an impoverished narrative of the mindset of a merchant trader. This book goes beyond the cardboard cutouts of merchant trader, and looks at the processe and human relationships necessary to sustain this vein of life. In this sense, it is a classic.
When I was in grade nine, I was told by my grandfather that this was one of the best written books in the English language. I began to read it on the bus, its corners became tattered as I poured over the words. I memorized passages and adopted its language in my high-school essays and was promptly reprimanded by my english teacher.
I never managed to place the book in a narrative that I could describe to myself.
This recording helped me get through the book in its entirety and absorb it as a narrative.
Great book, great reading, read experience.
This book was well read and reflected the text of the book. However, it reviews rarely read books.
It has not.
The material is useful and valuable. However, it is tedious.
This is a funny audio book. What is most important is that the author knows his audience and their many many anxieties. So its advice is directed toward them.
I probably will never be interested in
He does this through different voices and by comedy
God no ... I have to earn a living. Listened on the way to work.
