  • The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History

    Everything, well, almost everything, you know about American history is wrong because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academic historians who treat their biases as fact. But fear not; Professor Thomas Woods refutes the popular myths in The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History.

    Story

    I love Tom Woods, but I can't necessarily say I loved this book. IT'S NOT BAD, by any means, but it did have a few problems. It jumps around a good bit, with frequent flash forwards, sometimes skipping areas I would've liked to learn about. I'd probably still recommend though. I just think he needs to put out a revised edition.

    A belief in free will touches nearly everything that human beings value. It is difficult to think about law, politics, religion, public policy, intimate relationships, morality—as well as feelings of remorse or personal achievement—without first imagining that every person is the true source of his or her thoughts and actions. And yet the facts tell us that free will is an illusion.

    I'm not certain I agree with all of Sam's points, but the fact of the matter is that Sam makes a reasoned and intelligent argument on the subject, as he does in every other occassion.

    A large portion of this book is based on misinterpreted science and quantum physics. He thinks Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle occurs because of our mind affecting the physical universe, when actually it's just a side effect of trying to measure where a wave is and where it's going, which is hard to do with all waves, not just electrons.

    Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successful Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress. As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer.

    This audiobook is about luck, or more precisely, how we perceive and deal with luck in life and business. It is already a landmark work, and its title has entered our vocabulary. In its second edition, Fooled by Randomness is now a cornerstone for anyone interested in random outcomes.

    Story

    This guy starts off the book by explaining that you don't have to explain something clearly to be correct, which is true, but then he does exactly that: explains everything terribly. If you don't even make an attempt to explain your position clearly, (which the pretentious author refused to hire an editor), then why should I read your book. (Got halfway through; couldn't finish it).

    The author doesn't seem to explain what randomness even is, which could use some explaining for sure. There's a debate on whether something can ever even be random.

    If you ever read John Maynard Keynes, this book is written in a similar fashion. Nonsensical writing style with a bunch of made up words that follow no chronological order. Half the time you don't know what the hell you're reading about.

    From multiple New York Times best-selling author, neuroscientist, and "new atheist" Sam Harris, Waking Up is for the 30 percent of Americans who follow no religion, but who suspect that Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history could not have all been epileptics, schizophrenics, or frauds.

    Sam Harris is awesome and his voice just perfects it. However, if you're looking for specific ways to better access the meditative state, you might want to look elsewhere. He mostly goes over the science of the topic, which is nonetheless interesting.

    Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women. This is not fiction. These men really exist. They live together in houses known as Projects. And Neil Strauss, the best-selling author, spent two years living among them, using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity. The result is one of the most explosive and controversial books of the year.

    The Mises Institute is pleased to present this audio edition of Rothbard's most famous monetary essay - the one that has influenced two generations of economists, investors, and business professionals. The Mises Institute has united this book with its natural complement: a detailed reform proposal for a 100 percent gold dollar. "The Case for a 100 Percent Gold Dollar" was written a decade before the last vestiges of the gold standard were abolished.

    Rothbard was obviously the greatest. My only concern is his point on free market Fiat currencies. Bitcoin proved him wrong there.
