Surowiecki has created a very insightful book that explores group mentality in sociological, psychological and economic areas. The anecdotal examples are interpreted in a thought-provoking, eye- opening manner that was a definite pleasure. Maybe not a "crowd pleaser" but one of the few books I'd listen to again. The narration was also very good and did not bore, even with some of the heavier subject matter. All in all - an excellent read.
Although this is recap of a study done in the sixties I would hope that today these attitudes are the norm. Some of the insights were especially touching but, unfortunately we'll all have to experience death and its effects at some time or another. This book would be best utilized by those whose occupation would expose them to the terminally ill.
Controversial topic but poor execution - unanswered questions , incomplete premises - seems to be finished in a hurry . Maybe to fulfill media contract- Narration seemed uninspired also.
An outstanding reflection of an interesting life that certainly would have been diifferent if not for the presence of the stabilizing spiritual influence of an earthly saint. A must read for anyone that has had a crisis of faith or existence. Beautifully done - narration and all. Thank you Tony Hendra.
Engrossing account of turn of the century Chicago. Rich with details of the Exposition and the bonus investigation of a psycopathic serial killer.
