  • The Common Law

    This is one of the true classics in world legal literature. Written by a master of law and language, it is a primary source book for anyone interested either in legal theory or political science. For the layman, it serves to clarify the very essence of the common law, the cornerstone of our present legal system.

    PHIL says: "For law geeks; not a light read"
    "I love Oliver Wendell Holmes (condensed)"
    Overall

    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.

  • Reefer Madness: Sex, Drugs, and Cheap Labor in the American Black Market

    Story

    In Reefer Madness, the best-selling author of Fast Food Nation investigates America's black market and its far-reaching influence on our society through three of its mainstays - pot, porn, and illegal immigrants.

    Boulderite says: "Great Investigative Journalism"
    "Interesting Perspective"
    Overall

    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.

    This provocative book has found renewed popularity in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks: Is this the onset of the Crisis - the Fourth Turning - of which the authors predict? Hear it and decide for yourself. An audible.com audio exclusive.

    Robert says: "Explanation of generational interaction"
    "Life Altering Perspective"
    Overall

    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.
