I would recommend the book to baseball fans and statistic junkies. Not others.
Yes, I think he is a very interesting writer.
Sounded like he was talking to me and teling me a story. Emotional, easy to understand
A few people wrote that the book would be interesting even to people who do not like baseball. That is ludicrous. It is a very interesting application of statistics used for an objective analysis of the factors leading to success in baseball. If you like that, you will enjoy this book. If you don't like baseball and numbers, your eyes will roll back in your head by the second chapter.
The Collection was a major disappointment. The low quality recordings defeated every audio system I attempted, I was disappointed that I couldn't hear the recordings without great effort (at best); and disappointed that Audible made the recordings available without a disclaimer.
Clearly, the performances were recorded in the 20's and 30's by early (READ: bad) equipment; and the recordings have only grown worse over time. Actresses sound like Alvin the Chipmonk; actors appear to be speaking underwater; Orson Welles sounds like he is talking though a hat; and there are numerous incomprehensible off-stage sounds. The recording are a mess.
This Collection should have been distributed by in-Audible.
The manipulation by the Greeks to get into the euro financial community.
Excellent presentation, but I do not know if I have heard him before.
It is not that kind of book. It is more the kind of book where you slap your forehead wondering how they could have done what they did.
If the financial idiocy of other people and other countries make your life seem, somehow, or comforting, you also quite sure after reading this book. Even if the United States torpedoed its own economy, Michael Lewis makes it clear that we were not alone.
The US section was a bit odd. Fun, but out of sync with the rest of the book.
All in all, a fun book to listen to. It feels like Lewis is whispering stores in your ear.
Conversational and animated.
You Couldn't Make This Stuff Up
O'Reilly constantly pronounced "cavalry" as "Calvary". After the 50th time, that mispronunciation truly gets old.
