    Winner Take All is about the commodity dynamics that the world will face over the next several decades. In particular, it is about the implications of China’s rush for resources across all regions of the world. The scale of China’s resource campaign for hard commodities (metals and minerals) and soft commodities (timber and food) is among the largest in history.

    Story

    While the subject matter is compelling, the narrator's reading is simply the worst I have ever heard in an audiobook. He has frequent awkward pauses, breaks common expressions and phrases into multiple parts by stopping in the middle, and seems to need to pause after every four or five words, regardless of the sentence structure. It's very, very strange. Was no one else listening to him as he recorded this? (Hello, recording engineer?) How could he have been allowed to go on to record the narration for the entire book? I listened to what must have been only the first page of the text before thinking, what's wrong with this guy? His delivery is so halting and weird that it is off-putting ... it's hard to stay focused on the content because his narration is what is getting your attention. Honestly, this audiobook should be re-recorded. This is the first time I have ever commented on an audiobook's narration, and I listen to a lot of them.
