In this new audiobook, Stubborn Attachments: A Vision for a Society of Free, Prosperous, and Responsible Individuals, Cowen argues that our reason and common sense can help free us of the faulty ideas that hold us back as people and as a society. Stubborn Attachments, at its heart, makes the contemporary moral case for economic growth and delivers a great dose of inspiration and optimism about our future possibilities.

This may seem like a small thing, but I assure you it is not. Tyler Cowen’s work is phenomenal.

But every time he used the word “causal,” the narrator said “casual.”

This is inexcusable.

If you’re gonna narrate books written by famous social scientists, you need to know how to pronounce the word “causal.”

5 stats for the book.
2 stars for the performance.

Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

I didn't think I could love a book by the Heath brothers more than I loved "Switch." But this book is incredible. And the performance was flawless. Great pacing and delivery. I wish I could give it 6 stars.
