    David Stockman was the architect of the Reagan Revolution that was meant to restore sound money principles to the U.S. government. It failed, derailed by politics, special interests, welfare, and warfare. Stockman describes how the working of free markets and democracy has long been under threat in America and provides a surprising, nonpartisan catalog of the corrupters and defenders. His analysis shows how both liberal and neoconservative interference in markets has proved damaging and often dangerous.

    Story

    I'm only about 1/2 way through this audiobook but wanted to write a review anyways.
    From the start of this book I was highly engaged even though it is filled with more data, stats, and numbers than I could realistically consume. It was very eye opening and even though it does jump a round quite a bit, its like a history lesson told from financial side of things. It gives you a new perspective on government, politics, and political figures. Money changes everything.

    I actually feel like everyone should listen to this book. Even though quite a bit goes over my head, and there is so much information to consume, there are parts that will really stand out to you. You'll gain an understanding of how our financial system works, and fails... and might open your eyes to the future. Highly recommended.

    This is a decent book... not quite what I was expecting, but I still find the information quite fascinating. I think its worth a listen or read, especially if you are a female.

    The audio quality of this book is very bad. Its kind of muffled.

  • Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

    Story

    I read about 3/4 of Blink a couple years ago and decided I wanted to re-read it but went with the audiobook this time. I've read/listen to a number of books about the human mind, happiness, and self development, but this is still one of the best books I've read.

    The examples and research is very intriguing and you can apply much of what you find in this book to your own personal experiences. It also helps you understand where those 6th Sense feelings come from.

    I like the narration also. I do listen at 2x speeds, but the voice was still very easy to listen to.

    I highly recommend.
