The behavioral psychology info was quite interesting, but I feel the author never really tied any of it to the market or economics. There were some ties pointed out, for sure, but certainly not enough to support the ostensible aim of this book.
TERRIBLE! Authors should not narrate their own books. Disjointed sentences, poor flow, dismal delivery. I genuinely think this book would have gained a full star had it been read by a professional or had I simply read the dead tree version.
I rarely listen to an audiobook more than 12-15 hours long. Heck, I give up after 2-3 hours if the book isn't truly engrossing. On top of that, I find that fiction books often make worse audiobooks than nonfiction.
That said -- I listened to every minute of this book and wanted more! I was enthralled and entertained the whole way through. I cannot believe it was 40+ hours!
The first thing I did when I was finished was download the sequel (World w/o End)and start in on another masterful 40+ hour story.
Do not be afraid of this book's length. It is excellent material! The narrator is phenomenal too. He has a great voice, consistent characters, and excellent emotion.
If you like the historical medieval or fantasy genres (no fantasy here though) you WILL enjoy this book.
