    In A Splendid Exchange, William J. Bernstein tells the extraordinary story of global commerce from its prehistoric origins to the myriad controversies surrounding it today. He transports listeners from ancient sailing ships that brought the silk trade from China to Rome in the second century to the rise and fall of the Portuguese monopoly in spices in the 16th.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It is a shame that such a well written book is read by such an awful narrator. It sounds like this book is read by a computer generated voice with unexplained pauses and lack of emotion.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mel Foster’s performances?

    No


    Could you see A Splendid Exchange being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Very information book but not movie material.
