I heard this book, repeating some sections many times. I have followed Robert Reich even before he
became Secretary of the Dept. of Labor. I have always enjoyed his erudite exposition of american economy
and the choices we have to make to be part of such an economy. Therefore my review may be biased.
The book is certainly a basket of fodder for mind to ruminate.
Yes, I am writing this review while considering to listen to it again. I listened to the book many years ago 4-5 and the one thing I remember is the dignity with which the central character, father of the author has lived his life.
There are many great books, Kite Runner, Namesake, John Adams and Truman by David McCullough, Quite, too many to list here. They all enrich you.
I am listening to the second volume of the book and thus far I have to say that I am quite satisfied. You learn a lot, how practice of medicine/psychiatry affects physicians, how society expects health care system to deliver for very complex problems for a very low price, how personal relationships define physician's perspective on patients, life in general and society.Being a physician can be very exhausting.

The book captured very well the day to day life at a psych ward.
I listened to the book twice, only to digest the material once again.

this book even earlier as it is a necessary book (in my opinion) to
one's own understanding of investing and its rewards.
A must read for anyone who is interested in leading a quality life. The author an expert in the
science of sleep elaborates in very simple language the profound role sleep plays in our life.
It helps us appreciate how by adhering to some simple rules we can turn around our lives for
I heard the book in 20-25 minute chunks over a period of 2-3 weeks. I liked the book and probably
might hear it again when I have some time. The author paints a vivid picture of the circumstances
in which he grew up one I should admit is a difficult one. Reminded me many times of my childhood.
