    America is in the thrall of a full-scale socioeconomic breakdown. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation destroys the value of the dollar, and the population, unprepared for hardship, panics. Practically overnight, the high technology infrastructure and chains of supply collapse and wholesale rioting and looting grip every city. Law enforcement, transportation, electricity, fuel, and medical supplies are all in the past now, as the country staggers beneath its own weight.

    What made the experience of listening to Survivors the most enjoyable?

    The plot line is fantastic, the story always keeps moving, and it is narrated very well.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The suspense is great the detail is realistic and there are always a few turns you don't see coming.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Can't beat Dick Hill, his voice is the perfect narration for JWR's story


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

    This book is a special treat and I would listen to it again all in one sitting. I usually listen on my way to and from work. Must admit I may have taken a little longer lunch last week while listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    pay attention to the details, this is the whole point of the book.

  • The Death of Money: The Coming Collapse of the International Monetary System

    Story

    The international monetary system has collapsed three times in the past hundred years, in 1914, 1939, and 1971. Each collapse was followed by a period of tumult: War, civil unrest, or significant damage to the stability of the global economy. Now James Rickards, the acclaimed author of Currency Wars, shows why another collapse is rapidly approaching - and why this time, nothing less than the institution of money itself is at risk.

    Jean says: "A good review of the global financial system"

    Would you listen to The Death of Money again? Why?

    I am reading it again, this is a great well written book. James has the ability to take a lot of what I have pieced together over the last few years, organize it, put facts behind it and turn it into a picture that all can see. If you have wondered why this market turnaround has not really turned you around, then pick this up.


    What other book might you compare The Death of Money to and why?

    Another great book to read in conjunction with this is Flash Boys, by Michael Lewis, and A Primer on Money, Banking, and Gold (Unabridged) by Peter L Bernstein. The Flash Boys book will explain some of the complexity that is going on that even most of the wall street bankers are just figuring out, and A Primer on Money, Banking and Gold will give you a historical context so that you understand that just because it has always(at least in your life time) been like this does not mean that it always will be like this.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Pratt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    he is hands down in my top 3, if not my top one favorite performers here on audible.


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

    yes, unfortunately, sleeping, eating, and this nasty habit of going to work got in the way.


    Any additional comments?

    Really people, you need to read this, if you plan on living for more than just a few more years, you are probably going to witness one of the most interesting events in modern human history. I really think most people will be shock by it, but if you read this and some of the other books that I listed here, you will at least be aware it is coming, and possibly prepared, for the chaos that ensues after it happens.

  • The Coming Insurrection

    The Coming Insurrection is an eloquent call to arms arising from the recent waves of social contestation in France and Europe. Written by the anonymous Invisible Committee in the vein of Guy Debord — and with comparable elegance — it has been proclaimed a manual for terrorism by the French government (who recently arrested its alleged authors).

    Jacob Radkiewicz says: "Yep a Rant!"

    Sorry, I have to agree with the other review here. I hope the invisible committee becomes the silent committee.

    Story
    (421)

    In 1998, three Harvard Business School graduates - two men and one woman - turned down six-figure salaries at big corporations, bet on themselves, and launched their own new companies. By their 10-year reunion, their audacity had paid huge dividends. They'd made many millions of dollars, created hundreds of jobs and left their mark on the world. The Intelligent Entrepreneur tells the compelling and instructive story of how these three young founders did it.

    Mark C Walker says: "Disappointing"
    "Fantastic book"
    Overall

    This is a must read if you are considering starting your own company, period. It takes you through the lives of some very successful people and provides what I would like to call a mini Harvard Business School Lesson in a box.
