A fantastic listen. Sirico not only demonstrates the flawed nature of many of the arguments advocated by socialism and other government interventionist positions, he clearly illustrates through his own transformation and many other varied interesting stories why the free market and capitalism is superior in every way. Of course Sirico argues for a true form of capitalism restricted by moral law, which proves a constant theme throughout. Apparently not content with the traditional arguments of greater prosperity for all Sirico convincingly demonstrates why a true form of capitalism (as opposed to cronyism) is the truly moral form of governance.
The raw unapologetic aspect to Carter's writing is rather appealing in an age of political correctness. While this is not my favourite Carter the same familiar style continues with many more funny tales about the absurd trip down under on vegie oil.
...to the limit cannot really be done in a training scenario no matter how serious the situation. It is only when death threatens around every corner that human ingenuity and the will to survive can be truly revealed. Callahan depicts these qualities in graphic brilliance and forces the listener to experience at least a little of what he went through.
Murgatroyd has done a superb job depicting in graphic detail the disaster that was Burke and Wills. A fascinating piece of Australian history.
There's little to say, listen for yourself, probably the most enjoyable book I have listened to. The book is well written, the story brilliant, and the narration excellent.
Perhaps I come from a uneducated background but I suspect I'm typical of many middle class kids growing up who never give a thought to economics. A book or two on liberty and changed that and now I can't get enough of economics. Rothbard continues my learning curve with this book filled with a wealth of knowledge.
One often wonders what really happens in the private lives of politicians. This book provides an excellent insight into the life and death of a rather famous one, worth the time if you're half curious about Kennedy.
The story itself held little appeal to me however the viewpoint of Australia from another culture sold me. Bryson does well to make a rather boring story into a mostly entertaining listen.
I am loving Audible's audio books, I used to love reading but over the last few years have not had time to do it. I'm back into 'reading' now with Audible and have listened to over 25 book this year, not a lot by some standards but I was struggling to get through two in the last few years.
In this case I haven't read the print book so cannot give a definitive answer.
The whole book was great, though I would have to say the simplicity with which the story is told drew me in even more.
I enjoy listening to a book narrated by the author, you feel as if the story is being told firsthand and the emphasis is placed correctly.
Yes although I started in late so had to get some sleep, plugged the headphones in first thing in the morning though.
Spread the word, even your kids will like this one.
