    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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Dambisa Moyo paints a vivid picture of the motivations and strategies China employs to become the de-facto commodities monopsonist and thereby dictate terms to all suppliers worldwide. However, the real challenge of this audio book is to figure out what the narrator is actually saying. The rhythm and intonation of the performance is below Text-To-Speech level. I'm very sorry to say that this book is better read than listened to.
