  • When China Rules the World: The End of the Western World and the Birth of a New Global Order

    Story

    According to even the most conservative estimates, China will overtake the United States as the world's largest economy by 2027 and will ascend to the position of world economic leader by 2050. But the full repercussions of China's ascendancy-for itself and the rest of the globe-have been surprisingly little explained or understood.

    David Blake says: "Lucid explanation of global economic trends"
    "Its gets better"
    Overall

    This book is way too long and would have benefited greatly from the eye of an editor. First, they could have removed all references to the word "inconceivable" which would have reduced the length of the book by a good 10%. Removing duplicate sentences could have reduced it by a further 35%. Elimiating the inane anecdotes would have cut a further 15%. It would still have been a bit a long winded.

    However for those willing to sit through the 16.5 hours, it is quite illuminating and in the 2nd half, things do start to come together in a compelling way.

  • The Story of the Renaissance

    Story
    (8)

    Voyages of discovery, inventions, the revival of classical learning, and the advent of science contributed to the intellectual upheavals of this creative period, and are reflected in its literature and art. Hudson focuses on the one thread of continuity that he sees as both the seed and the fruit of this exciting era: the awakening of secular humanism and the emergence of the individual. This history gives the listener a lucid, perceptive analysis of the splendid Renaissance.

    carolyn says: "Tapestry of an age"
    "A beautiful listen"
    Overall

    This audio book is beautiful to listen to; written in a style of prose one doesn't hear much these days. The author is very much a part of the book, and methinks not entirely impartial, but illuminates the period in a fascinating and very engaging way.

    "Not particularly academic, but pleasing"
    Overall

    This is like sitting by the fire listening to a friend wax lyrical on the topic of negotiating. Its not particularly academic, but I found it pleasing, even amusing, to listen to. I've already listened twice, and probably will many more times.
