Most people are not aware of the great leaders of history! If more people listened to the inspiring speeches from great leaders such as Churchill, Kennedy and Martin Luther and M.L.King, and read some history; they would not stand for the double speaking, spineless, self serving, and quisling like, empty suit politicians in the house and senate that keep getting re-elected!
To include Jimmy Carter hopeless speech and a 10 self indulgent fluff speech by Bill Clinton, is utterly laughable, in the light of the giants, while not including the actual speech by Ronald Reagan's "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall." Instead, the CD has a two-minute segment from an American TV address in which he tells of seeing the Berlin Wall.
The one thing it shows is the political leanings of the people that put this audio book collection together....
Thomas Sowell has again shown that he is a think tank of our age. His wisdom and logic cannot be defeated at face, as shown by Elton's weak criticism. One can get away with demagoguery on a TV clip or sign waved in a demonstration, but lay out your argument paper simple terms it becomes obvious that Thomas Sowell's logic cannot be refuted...
This has to be one of my all time favorite novels!
There is a reason this book as been voted to be one of the most influential books in the last century. Though I do not agree with Ayn Rands phiopsophy of objectionism, she has a profound debt of understanding of the nature of man that is displayed through the various of characters in this book, that made it gripping.
But if your prefer wrestling or a 30min TV show that gets to the plot in that time, and find that to fit your attention spand then this book is not for you.
