Thomas Sowell's writings are always intelligent and thought provoking. His grasp of economics surpasses all other current authors on this topic, and his understanding of current society comes from his understanding of history and human nature. His books are never boring even when discussing economics.
That said, "A Conflict of Visions" isn't about right or left; just as there are big-government Democrats, there are big government Republicans. This book is about the constrained and unconstrained visions of how the world works.
Listen to it, and you may just gain some insights into yourself.
While I haven't listened to any other David Suchet vocal performances, listening to him as Hercule Poirot is nearly as good as watching him on television. He does all the other character's voices so well you might think that more than one performer is reading the book.
I have been reading Agatha Christie books since grade school. This was my first Christie audio book, and I will be purchasing more, especially those read by Mr. Suchet.
Those who don't mind very strong language will enjoy this audible book, especially real guys.
I hadn't heard of Adam Carolla until recently when I heard him interviewed on a radio show. I decided to give this a try because I did get some laughs during the interview.
I agree with many of his points and enjoy the ranting. I also enjoy Mr. Carolla's reading his own work, except for the language; his voice is well-suited to rants.
I don't like the very strong language used. Other words could be substituted to get the message across just as forcefully. That being said, I still listened to the entire book because I liked the subject, got some laughs and enjoyed his voice.
Mesmerizing, fantastic, spellbinding
The last battle
The voices he uses for the different characters. They are consistent and added greatly to my listening experience.
Book 3 won't be out until April 2012! I'll be on tenterhooks until then to find out how the story ends.
riveting spellbinding splendid
Shadow Harold's meeting with the king
His excellent (and consistent) voices for the characters, whether a human, gnome, elf or dwarf. His reading really brought the story to life and greatly added to my imagination of the characters.
