  • A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles

    In this book, which the author calls a "culmination of 30 years of work in the history of ideas", Sowell attempts to explain the ideological difference between liberals and conservatives as a disagreement over the moral potential inherent in nature. Those who see that potential as limited prefer to constrain governmental authority, he argues. They feel that reform is difficult and often dangerous, and put their faith in family, custom, law, and traditional institutions.

    Robert says: "Not a lite listen"
    "Informative"
    Overall

    I learned a lot from this book it is extemely informative and necessary to learn the difference between liberals & conservatives. The narration must of been done by computer that made it diificult to get through. I love you so much Thomas and your work is so important but please get a better quality reader.

    Marty Kalish is a young man suffocating in the heat of an affair with a married woman named Rachel. When Rachel's husband disappears one night, Marty is one of the first to be questioned. With few likely suspects, the police arrest him for murder. We want him to be innocent, but the more he tells us, the more we fear he is guilty. And as the twists and turns of the plot unfold, we can't be completely sure.

    If you could sum up Line of Vision in three words, what would they be?

    How do authors know these things?


    What other book might you compare Line of Vision to and why?

    Can't think of anything I've read like it


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Very well done


    Any additional comments?

    Couldn't stop listening to it, it puts you in the head of a possible killer and walks you through the experience and trial.

    Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work.

    "wow"
    Overall

    This was such a great book. I loved his style. The reader is also very good. I was totally captivated. I will definately be getting more of his work.

    This is a study of how intellectuals as a class affect modern societies by shaping the climate of opinion in which official policies develop, on issues ranging from economics to law to war and peace. You will hear a withering and clear-eyed critique about (but not for) intellectuals that explores their impact on public opinion, policy, and society at large.

    Chlo-bell says: "An efficient attack on liberal philosophy."
    "must read"
    Overall

    This is such a great book. It puts alot of things in perspective.If you want to know whats gone wrong in society don't pass this one up.

    Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it's nothing more than a tragic hunting accident, but Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods.

    Sydney says: "a gentle mystery"
    "Interesting plot"
    Overall

    I must not be sophisticated enough to appreciate an artistic Canadian novel. The reader had a great voice & did a very good job.

    Smashed skull, snapped ribs, and a cloying smell of carrion. Leave the body for the hyenas to devour - no body, no case. But when Kalahari game rangers stumble on a human corpse midmeal, it turns out the murder wasn't perfect after all. Enough evidence is left to suggest foul play. Detective David "Kubu" Bengu of the Botswana Criminal Investigation Department is assigned to the case.

    Robert says: "Hot and Arid"
    "Wow"
    Overall

    I thought this was a great book. It was so well written and the narration was also terrific. I will be getting the rest of his books.
