    Brilliant and engagingly written, Why Nations Fail answers the question that has stumped the experts for centuries: Why are some nations rich and others poor, divided by wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine?

    Ryan says: "Important themes, with blind spots"
    "Astonishing Read. Loved it."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    One of the best books I've read in years. If you liked Guns, Germs, Steel... you will love this sweeping look at economic history. Enlightening and extremely thought provoking, punctuated by fascinating examples of why nations fail and succeed from all points in human history and across all continents.


    What other book might you compare Why Nations Fail to and why?

    Guns, Germs, Steel. Rational Optimist. Ascent of Money.


    Which character – as performed by Dan Woren – was your favorite?

    Well narrated. Great reader.
