Sadly, the author does not know much about a lot of subjects but instead of researching them to find out, he just dishes out the same incorrect nonsense you learned in junior high regarding such subjects as Abraham Lincoln and the OPEC oil embargo. His lack of any sort of practical knowledge of economics prevents him from providing the listener with any usable insight on important topics. I had to turn it off after he attributed the gas shortage and subsequent long lines at the pump in the early 1970's to the oil embargo and made no mention of Nixon's price controls.
Addicted to Audible since 2009
A good listen and lots of fun, though I must say I have heard most of the facts presented in this audio books and unfortunately, out of the five hours of the book, only some of the facts were especially interesting.
