    The Great Recession that began in 2007 is now more than four years old - and counting. Some 24 million Americans are unemployed or underemployed, and at recent rates of job creation we won’t be back to normal levels of employment until late this decade. This is a tragedy. Do we have to accept it? "No!" is the resounding answer given by Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman in this call to arms. We have seen this situation before and we know how to fix it; all we lack is the political will to take action.

    Where does End This Depression Now! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5 all time


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its common knowledge backed with hard stats


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Totally hated the Narrator, since author Paul Krugman would've been the obvious choice, because he naturally has that wise guy type sarcastic humor


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No! you will def need to break it off in multiple sessions, i prefer them during my long drives


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome well researched masterpiece, luv it

    Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women. This is not fiction. These men really exist. They live together in houses known as Projects. And Neil Strauss, the best-selling author, spent two years living among them, using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity. The result is one of the most explosive and controversial books of the year.

    Stephen says: "A Must Read For All Men"
    "Wow most Amazing! Audiobook ever"

    What did you love best about The Game?

    Neil Strauss made every character come to life, incredible details & inside tips made me feel like i was living the experience


    What other book might you compare The Game to and why?

    NONE, nothing even comes close to it, such an amazingly well written book


    What about Neil Strauss’s performance did you like?

    Change in voice tones as the story progressed, the pace and impressions were absolutely spot on


    If you could give The Game a new subtitle, what would it be?

    The Game: the underground world of fearless men


    Any additional comments?

    This will go down as my most favorite audiobook of all time, i plan to hand it down to my kids. The storyline was much more than just picking up women, the transformation from AFC to MPUA was super exciting. My only regret is this book was not out in my high school years haha my life would've taken a dramatic turn

    Over the past decade, Americans watched in bafflement and rage as one institution after another - from Wall Street to Congress, the Catholic Church to corporate America, even Major League Baseball - imploded under the weight of corruption and incompetence. In the wake of the Fail Decade, Americans have historically low levels of trust in their institutions; the social contract between ordinary citizens and elites lies in tatters. How did we get here? Christopher Hayes offers a radically novel answer.
