    The Liberty Collection includes: "The Law" by Frederic Bastiat (1 hour 20 minutes). Bastiat (bawst ya) (1801-1850) was an economist, a member of the French assembly and an influential libertarian speaker and writer. "The Law", Bastiat's most famous work, argues that the purpose of the law is the protection of individual rights, and that when governments adopt policies favoring particular industries or groups, the law becomes an instrument of injustice and oppression.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed this collection. Bastiat's works are timeless as are those from the likes of Thomas Jefferson. I got some good laughs out of Cyrus McCormick's story of the reaper. These are things you don't hear about in school history books.

    How an Economy Grows and Why it Crashes uses illustration, humor, and accessible storytelling to explain complex topics of economic growth and monetary systems. In it, economic expert and bestselling author of Crash Proof, Peter Schiff teams up with his brother Andrew to apply their signature "take no prisoners" logic to expose the glaring fallacies that have become so ingrained in our country's economic conversation.

    Would you listen to How An Economy Grows And Why It Crashes again? Why?

    I loved this book and would listen to it again in a heart-beat. The analogy is entertaining, accurate and in many cases, quite funny. I found myself laughing out loud at the character names who represent real people from American economic history.


    What about Peter D. Schiff and Andrew J. Schiff ’s performance did you like?

    The readers (and authors) did an excellent job reading the story. Andrew Schiff read the analogy and Peter would jump in with a series of


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The climactic ending was both dramatic and prophetic. I found myself loving the ending and hating it at the same time. I loved the irony but hate how tragic the ending is for the people in the book. The United States is on the same path as the people in the book unless policy makers hit the brakes on current policy and change direction.

    Everything, well, almost everything, you know about American history is wrong because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academic historians who treat their biases as fact. But fear not; Professor Thomas Woods refutes the popular myths in The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History the most enjoyable?

    The version of history you get in public school or even college leaves out critical information that this book points out. Popular versions of history paint a pretty picture about presidents like Clinton, FDR, Lincoln. But when you analyse the facts and events pointed out in this book, you realize just how failed these presidencies where and how distorted the view of history has become. History is truly written by the victors and this book is a must read if one is to understand the less-popular untold version of American history.
