  • The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism

    Participating in the economy is a part of everyday life; yet much of what is commonly accepted as fact is wrong. Keynesian schoolteachers and the liberal media have filled the world with politically correct errors that myth-busting professor Robert Murphy sets straight. Murphy explains hot topics like outsourcing (why it's good for Americans) and zoning restrictions (why they're not). Just like the other books in the P.I.G. series, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism pulls no punches.

    Micah says: "Entertaining and Educational"
    "Economics for the lay person"
    Overall

    You don't have to be an academic to understand the common sense that Murphy lays out in The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism. This book will help you identify what you've instinctively sensed has been been wrong with our economic policies and what needs to be done to fix them. From this book go on to read Peter Schiff and Thomas Woods, and other authors who explain the Austrian school of economics thinking.

  • Meltdown: A Look at Why the Economy Tanked and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

    The media tells us that "deregulation" and "unfettered free markets" have wrecked our economy and will continue to make things worse without a heavy dose of federal regulation. But the real blame lies elsewhere. In Meltdown, best-selling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr., unearths the real causes behind the collapse of housing values and the stock market---and it turns out the culprits reside more in Washington than on Wall Street.

    Overall

    Forget about 'derivatives' and the other esoteric culprits for the economic collapse of 2008-2009. The real reason is much simpler than that and Woods skillfully explains why. Woods is an historian who delivers a compelling narrative that hearing, you just know he would have been one of your favorite teachers if you had been in his class.
    I was so impressed by it that I have bought and given out many copies of this book. Read it. Highest reviews.

  • Economics in One Lesson

    Called by H.L. Mencken, "one of the few economists in history who could really write," Henry Hazlitt achieved lasting fame for his brilliant but concise work. In it, he explains basic truths about economics and the economic fallacies responsible for unemployment, inflation, high taxes, and recession.

    Kenrick says: "Truly an amazing work."
    "This is a timeless classic"
    Overall

    The way economics is explained today is intimidating. Henry Hazlitt takes the intimidation out of it and lays out a common sense masterpiece that half a century later is as relevant today as when it was written.

  • The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets: How to Keep Your Portfolio Up

    In the wake of falling stock and real estate prices, the American economy is poised for a decade-long bear market, so says Peter Schiff. After he accurately predicted the current market turmoil, savvy investors should pay attention - and start protecting their assets now, before the markets take their toll. The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets shows investors how to stay safe and stay liquid during economic downturns.

    morton says: "Excellent and Timely"
    "Here's what 'Peter Schiff was right" about"
    Overall

    This book is proof that Keynesian economic thinking is poppy-cock and harmful, as Schiff was able to successfully predict the economic meltdown of 2008-2009 using his Austrian school of economics viewpoint. The only point I took away is that I would have much preferred to hear Peter Schiff narrate the book himself.

  • Scaramouche

    With swordfights and romance, adventure and treachery set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, this is the book that made Sabatini famous. Andre-Louis Moreau has good prospects as a young lawyer, but an unfair duel with the ruthlessly cruel Count de La Tour d'Azyr leaves Andre-Louis' best friend dead and Andre-Louis himself a fugitive from the King's justice. While incognito, he becomes both a wildly popular actor and a firebrand of the Revolution.

    Tariq Anis says: "Mesmerizing"
    "If you haven't discovered Sabatini, start here!"
    Overall

    Scaramouche is a totally satisfying story in the tradition of Dumas ("Three Musketeers") and Hugo ("Les Miserables") by a an author who may not be as well read today as he deserves. Excellent story, excellent performance. Every Sabatini book that I have read is fun.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "Pot boiler delivers New Age religious viewpoint"
    Overall

    Like all Dan Brown books, this is a fairly predictable pot boiler, although in this book more than his others, Brown delivers a religious tract echoing new age beliefs that man needs to discover that he is his own God.
