    Story
    (53)

    From 1975 to 1979 Ronald Reagan gave more than 1,000 daily radio broadcasts, the great majority of which he wrote himself. These addresses transform our image of Reagan, and enhance and revise our understanding of the late 1970s - a time when Reagan held no political office, but was nonetheless mapping out a strategy to transform the economy, end the Cold War, and create a vision of America that would propel him to the presidency.

    Michael says: "I LOVED this -common sense in Reagan's own voice"
    "Reagan is the true American exemplar"
    Overall

    These commentaries are not only insightful, but Reagan shows us how to be critical of our government while maintaining a positive attitude, knowing that we have the ability to fix any problems we find. I was only 10 when Reagan was first elected, but with the help of these commentaries, I am beginning to understand why my parents and their generation loved him so much.

    I only hope that politicians of today will take note as to what made Reagan so successful. In my estimation, it was his faith in and love of God and country, his optimism, and his strong belief of the power of the individual and that Government is not always the answer.

    Story
    (138)

    In December, 1999, a multinational team journeys out to the stars, to the most awesome encounter in human history. Who, or what, is out there?

    Ryan says: "Contact is wonderful"
    "As expected... far better than the movie"
    Overall

    I fully expected this book to be excellent with Jodi Foster reading, and I was not disappointed. Her oration was excellent and matched the quality of Sagan's imagination.

    The story is fantastically creative, technical, and detailed, yet remains within the realm of possibilities.

  • The Making of Modern Economics: The Lives and Ideas of the Great Thinkers

    Story

    Here is a bold new history of economics, the dramatic story of how the great economic thinkers built a rigorous social science without peer.

    David says: "Fair Review of the Men Behind Modern Economics"
    "Compelling, insightful, & informative"
    Overall

    Skousen paints a wonderful history of economic thought from Adam Smith to today, illustrating the merits and pitfalls of the dominant schools of theory while providing insight into the personal lives of the men and women who have shaped the economic and political landscape we live in.

    I found the book educational and entertaining; although, I did find myself drifting into thought at times, usually to mentally debate an idea or concept that was introduced.

    Skousen is upfront and unapologetic about his approach; namely, he is a free market economist and judges all other schools of thought from this angle. I found it a refreshing vantage point to evaluate this sometimes convoluted subject.
