This book is worth reading so that you may understand the reasoning that led us to deregulate everything and cause the current financial collapse. The Friedmans deftly weave between fact, science, fiction, and opinion in a fashion that leads the reader to accept it all as science.
This is an extraordinarily well told story. I found it riveting to the end. The human component comes through at every turn.
Okay, this starts out very interesting but then turns into a bit of a hippie diatribe. It also blames a lot of victims for their situation. It comes down to using modern quantum theory to justify the position of some mystics. I'm not saying I disagree, but that's what the book's about.
This is very well done and a great explanation of economic growth and decline. Unfortunately, I believe it is missing some crucial parts that become important through time. It goes a long way toward discussing current fiscal policy and why it can't work. It's non-partisan.
Just finished listening to this: Holy Smokes! The narrator plays the characters like a virtuoso. The story is, well, unimaginably good. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has ever been desperately in love.
I enjoyed the story of Lincoln's assassination. It really only deals with the last couple of weeks of the president's life. That's a pity. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I'm not from wherever Bill O'Reilly is from and I find his accent very annoying. His reading style is a little too "I'm super smart" smug.
I can't say I care for this book. Of course, I also think that if someone's life was in peril because of this book, then I completely missed the point. I find it to be too full of psycho-erotic babble. It jumps around in time and place too much.
However, the narration was easy on the ear.
This is a well written explanation of why I'm fearful of a great deal of unlikely scenarios and nonchalant about the extraordinarily dangerous. Even more, the author allows me to understand and sometimes reprogram the collective mind in my workplace and at home to better reflect that which is truly important and that which is not.
good glimpse into the world of emotionally challenged kids. certainly not all are super bright. not all are gifted at math(s).
very nice review of the path to enlightenment. should be required material for school
