    Story
    (15)

    The traditional religion known as Shinto was present in Japan from prehistoric times, long before Buddhism and other traditions arrived from the Asian continent. Shrine Shinto, centered around local shrines and seasonal festivals, has greatly influenced Japanese culture. Sect Shinto is characterized by more highly organized institutions, which attract many members; folk Shinto consists of beliefs and practices apart from these institutions, especially in the home.

    He did a good job when he explained a few things about Shinto. but I wish he would have stuck more traditional religions instead of going on about small religious sects that most Japanese people dont even know about. So if your interested in Japanese culture, read half the book, and then read something else.

    Story

    With the "flattening" of the globe, has the world gotten too small and too fast for human beings and their political systems to adjust in a stable manner? Now in a third edition with a new preface, Friedman's account of the flattening of the earth is a modern classic.

    Paul W. Johnson says: "worth the listen"
    "way too long"
    Overall

    This book is basiclay a long economics book. If you have take a few coreses in Economcis, i wouldnt bother with it. But if you've never study economics before, it might be for you.
