Sandel articulates the intrusions of market values in public spaces and how that intrusion degrades our coherence as a society and our personal values. His analysis is spot on.
The book provides a historical context to balance headline news accounts that too often emphasize the negative and the sensational. I would like to think that humans might be becoming at least generally less lethal to one another and the book provides reasons to think so. I purchased hard copies for family members who I thought would enjoy the arguments for progress that the author presents.
Arthur Morey is likely a fine narrator, but I played the audio book at high speed because of the length of the book.
