This book is a delight to read. I heard it twice and had two dozen of my friends buy the book. It is about 75% accurate with good analysis. I can say with a great deal of certainty - having lived in the Middle East for 20 years - the balance 25% of comments and observations were quite superficial and lacked an in-depth analysis or investigation. It is a must read for those who are considering doing business in Saudi Arabia. It would be a time, effort and money saver. I wish I read it ten years ago!!
Yes, good and impartial analysis of the state of the affairs in the US.
Common Wealth by Jeffrey Sachs, but Sachs book had significantly lot more beef on depth and breadth.
My Life (unabridged)
Mr Clinton views of G8 countries as competitors when it comes to Government services, planning, and global positioning.
It is a good positive thoughts book where Mr Clinton decided to air his views against the rising tide of disappointment with the Democratic among the American people.
A well articulated book from what seems to be a master communicator and an intellect. Secretary Rumsfeld certainly knows how to make an argument. It is difficult however to imagine that in this century with all the intelligence mechanisms and technology available to the US war decisions that led to the perish of hundreds of thousands of human beings were made on the intuition of a President and his Secretary of Defense. No wonder Secretary Rumsfeld had to use the second half of his bio to explain and defend the unjustified war. To better understand the case of Secretary Rumsfeld, I suggest you read or hear
This book could have been an excellent reading/hearing if it was trimmed significantly to eliminate the repeating unnecessary in your eyes/ears chest beating by the Author. He really did not have to do this as it was implicit in the facts stated. He also wasted too much time and effort in trying to create a script for a financial thriller by repeatedly trying to show how scared he was that Bernie would plant a bomb under his hood. No kidding...that sounded like reading a Mafia novel. Ironically, in the interview Bernie gave from prison he claimed the Author was irrelevant!! Could have done a better job...
I downloaded this book thinking that I will be hearing a book in English language about Ambani only to discover that the book is read in a non-English language. Unless you are a fluent Indian language speaker, don't waste your money. Message to Audible: since you are now selling non-English language books, kindly highlight the language of each Audible book so that long time Audible customers (6 yrs) like myself don't get disappointed.
President Carter has exhibited an extraordinary courage in writing this book which qualifies him for a second Nobel Prize
A book about common sense.. It's the best answer to the famous saying "don't be silly." It is true that "small signs of disorder..can be tipping points." The key question is obviously how to distinguish between a tipping point and a silly matter. This is where the book gave some insights. Worth the time, and the money..
A good book to listen to. A lot of valuable lessons...
A book with good insights into the M&A business. Good historical perspective and valuable lessons to those who have Wall Street aspirations. The Author however spent more time than he should have on irrelevant matters - maybe in an attempt to spice the book - but winded up diluting what could have been otherwise an excellent book.
This book has nothing to do with mergers and acquisitions...nor with the investment banking culture. The title is grossly misleading. The book is a poor quality attempt to create an erotica story. Not worth the money, but more important not worth your time..if what you are seeking is some insight into the M&A world.
Great book to hear. Broad overview of history of economics. Well written and interesting to hear. Well done for the author and the narrator.
