What would Jesus do if he visited your college campus? Walk around? Read books and drink coffee? Or would he preach the Gospel? As Christians, we are called to bring the truth of God and everything the Lord has taught us to the people around us. At times, this may be difficult because of our lack of biblical teaching on evangelism. This book is designed to show people how simple it is to fulfill the Great Commission, even in their daily lives.

Friedrich Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil, first published in 1886, presents a scathing critique of traditional morality and attacks previous philosophers for their blind acceptance of Christian ideals of virtue. As an alternative to what he viewed as the illogical and irrelevant philosophy of the nineteenth century, Nietzsche argues for the importance of imagination, self-assertion, danger, and originality for genuine philosophy.

I thought this was going to be a plain English book. This is my first attempt to really tackle and understand this topic. Perhaps that is why it felt so jargon-filled. is it good traduction for me but just seems really dry perhaps with reading more material this will eventually make sense but I didn't understand a good chunk of it and feel that I grew only a little bit and my understanding after reading this.

What are the grand dynamics that drive the accumulation and distribution of capital? Questions about the long-term evolution of inequality, the concentration of wealth, and the prospects for economic growth lie at the heart of political economy. But satisfactory answers have been hard to find for lack of adequate data and clear guiding theories.

I was looking for a book with more detail and models examples. Perhaps even some Loop holes. The first quarter of the book you spend getting motivated to become rich I was not looking for that. Same for the last 10% of the book the middle sections are really good and helping you how to think and develop a system and how to improve. without specific details. It's a good book to get started but not learn specific laws or pitfalls that you have to pick up along the way.

as for the content and the style the book was written I definitely give it a thumbs up. What really bothered me was the speaker. It was read as if I were listening to a lecture and it ruined the feel of reading and objectivity of reading allpwing me to interpret the book myself instead of getting his ironic tones and sarcastic laughter. I don't care for that at all. but the book as a whole was very insightful on the history as well as medical implementation of the primal framework. I enjoy economics and I enjoy medicine this is definitely a good read.
