This is a different type of book for me and I was delighted. I heard a brief excerpt on Book Radio and had to have this title. All of us in audio book land know that the reader can make or break a book. George Guidall is great! I would listen to this one again. Also have a new author on my "favorites" list.
I was taken in from the beginning. This is a significant work of sourced material that should be a must read for anyone involved in business or cares about what your money is really worth.
The historical and global "connections" are quite astounding.
This really does not apply to this work of nonfiction.
This book had such a significant impact on me that I purchased the hard copy so that I could have the footnotes and sources.
This book probably requires at least a basic understanding of economics and some banking.
Even if you saw the movie, you did not get 30% of the real story and you are really missing out on what we really owe our military if you rely on the movie and accept it as the whole. Hollywood left out a significant part of this hero's story which is both heart wrenching and heart warming.
The narration is seamless and brings the pictures full force to your mind! Take a moment of your time to thank a Veteran and mean it!
I usually will make myself compete any book that I purchase in hopes that if nothing else, it will improve my literary fund of knowledge. This is the first book that I have ever returned. It was hopelessly wordy and seemed to be headed for some dark inexorable ending. I wish that I had read more of the reviews.
I can't help myself. I love the screwball characters and how poetic justice seems to prevail. Since I am a native, and I lived through Hurricane Andrew I actually found some of the sub plots completely believable. The sarcasm and unexpected dialogue is fantastic and Skink is a mesmerizing character to say the least. I am hooked! Don't let the "save the planet" theme that permeates the book deter you. Read it and laugh out loud! George Wilson is a fantastic reader and he slips effortlessly and flawlessly between characters.
Two of the most juvenile, annoying characters and the readers are just as bad. I am shocked at the "great reviews". It is almost as bad as 50 shades of you know what.
