This course offers a fairly in depth history lesson for the last century in China. It starts out with a summation of the previous events, ideas and principles that led up to the collapse of the dynastic system. The author provides analysis of the events by referring to other historical references. During the more modern era the author is able to add in his own experiences to give the listener a more personal look at the daily realities of the Chinese today. Though there was less of an analysis on the financial history then I would have hoped for, particularly the financial practices of several groups in modern day China. I will admit this is simply my own preference and likely not a notable deficit for most listeners.
The story of the Last Hunt is enjoyable. But for this audio edition the last 2.5 hours contain a lot of chapter that are read twice or sometimes even three times. I don't know who edited this, but they did a very poor job. The climax of the whole series is chopped up and it largely destroys the suspense and flow, which is such a shame.
