In the top ten
Aristotle's section was wonderful
Yes I liked the Professors way of bringing to live the character in the book
It made me look at further books about other great thinkers.
For entry level to investing this covers all the bases. As a complete novice I have learnt the fundamentals and have followed up on the advise given. I look forward to re listening to this audio book in the future and will carry on using it as a guide.
Having brought the book after it was chosen by the book club for Mark Zuckerberg to read I have found it to be extremely informative. The book is very complex and so requires a little more attention than most, but after coming to grips with the many statistics and reference material I am looking forward to reading more of Stevens books. The author obviously has a good understanding and a non biased view of the subject matter and this I feel is what makes the book educational.
A truly inspiring story of a statesman with the foresight to see the future of world events. His story is as relevant to us today as it was during his time.
Absolutely! The story captivated my imagination and I felt like I was stood by the side of Laurence throughout is journey.
T.E. Laurence was the main character and so it's without a doubt that he is the leading character.
The narrator brings this story to life so well it sounded like he himself was Laurance.
The long distances that Laurance endured on camel and the moments of complete isolation bring it home how humans can struggle through and make the most of bad situations, even through these difficult times Laurance still captures the beauty of the Middle East his discription of the surrounding areas and the people he travelled with is like poetry. Nothing is left unsaid and the simple purity in the writting brings you in to his world.
For those who would like to get a better understanding of the early times of the Middle East and with a perspective that is non biased this is the book for you. With modern events and with difficulties currently in the region it would be wise for those who make comments with out a factual bases to take a moment to step back into history and get a better idea of the reasons why modern day Islam has come about.
The story is very fluid and moves at a constant pace. Even from chapter to chapter it was difficult to find places to stop I managed to get through the complete book in four days.
As there are many different charters in the book it is hard to pin point.
Personal experiance and a wide ranging knowledge of the subject matter give the depth and width to the subject without creating confusion.the personal touch at the beginning of the book also reinforces this fact.
I don't think the title needs to be changed it is as it says the end of power you could remix this but I don't think it is not needed.
I thought this was a wonderful book and I would look forward to a possible follow up. It would be interesting for the author to maybe look into where power after degrading ends up and if there is a possible growth. Through out history civilisations and power bases have either collapsed or feather out into obscurity, however even with the complexity of our modern society there is still a possibility that some one or something will rise up and become a power in its own right. I think it is currently difficult to predict this but that it will eventually happen. With the authours knowledge it would make for an interting follow up. And I will be the first to get a copy!
Very informative guide from the early staring point of the EU right through to present day.
I would say that amongst the characters Margaret Thatcher would be the more interesting players in the political scene (but then I am English). So in fact each character adds their part to the overall story.
Gordon Griffin's performance was brilliant, his voice is commanding and keeps you attentive to the story line, which is complex in its own right.
A real life adventure in a world that is carried out behind the scenes.
If you are either studding EU politics or need to get a better understanding of politics and its many different moves this is the book for you.
Not sure I do not have a printed version of this book.
It was all memorable, I will be listening to this again
He brings real life to the audio version.
I think the title does not need to be changed.
Yes I would. Its a must read for any body interested in the mind of a great man.
Read with a tone fitting to the book
It made me think!
