I should have admired Holmes' wisdom and theories from afar or at least tackled this work only in printed form. Unlike most audiobooks, I had to actually pause my housework and concentrate fully to gain the meaning from this exhaustive verbosity. While I adored the style and language of Victorian Era literature, it was just too much for such a technical subject. I really wanted to make it through, but this one defeated me after a mere 4 hours.
This was an interesting read and provided some shocking information on the ridiculous "war on drugs". It could have offered more background on how the drug war came to its present state, but this was well worth listening to.
We seem to have lost all conventional wisdom regarding the natural cycle of all things to include life, economies, cultures, governments, etc... This book really puts generation gaps in a natural perspective. This book gave me a clearer understanding of why my parents' generation often seems more foreign and irrelevant to me than that of of my grandparents. Amazing book.
