loved it just as much as the previous Ender series
Having little knowledge of finance I learned much. Mostly I gained appreciation for the unmitigated avarice of unregulated investment banking. Well-written and well-researched. Makes you feel like you were there.
This book is almost better heard than read because of the Jamaican patois. The reader nails the Jamaican and switches effortlessly to other accents including "proper" British, cockney and Irish.
The descriptions are so vivid that I can still "see" each character in my mind's eye. The story would make for a compelling, albeit disturbing, movie.
Overt American racism in the guise of Jim Crow laws existed in my lifetime (I'm old, but not that old). It still blows my mind! This book gives us a window on that relatively recent time and place. Well written. Excellent narration. I felt like I was there.
Eugenides is an outstanding writer. Tabori does an excellent job with the accents but mispronounces the medical terms.
slow start...but oh what a finish
Carroll gets it right. Great case studies carefully explained puts this up there with The Beak of the Finch as testimony to the wondrous workings of evolution and natural selection.
This book gave me a new perspective on the muslim world and makes me glad I don't live there
Too "touchy-feely" for me at times but there is some good advice.
Although some of Gladwell's assertions are subject to debate, there is no doubt that they are well presented and certainly make good "food for thought".
