Where does Flash Boys rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I loved this book. The only thing i would be critical about is the cussing.

We were not created to just get by with average, unrewarding or unfulfilling lives. God created us to leave our marks on our generations. Every person has seeds of greatness planted within by the Creator. When life weighs upon us, pushing us down, limiting our thinking, labeling us in negative ways, we have what it takes to overcome and rise above into the fullness of our destinies.

Would you listen to Break Out! again? Why?

Yes I have listened to Break out three times.

What other book might you compare Break Out! to and why?

He hits on some fundamental concepts in life. Knowone wants to be around someone that is down or negative. If you are possitive other people will want to be around you and favor you.

What about Joel Osteen’s performance did you like?

I love how possitive he is with life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes

It's no secret that the U.S. national debt is in the tens of trillions. But did you know that America also has future unfunded obligations of over $118 trillion? Unfortunately, America's politicians have no plan to solve our mounting fiscal and monetary crisis. But you don't have to watch this unfold in fear of your financial future. The time for debate is over... It's time to prepare!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who doesnt understand economics may like this book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jerry Robinson again?

no

What didn’t you like about Kevin Pierce’s performance?

How very repetative and focuses on the negative not the possitive. There will be winner and there will be loosers with hyperinflation. He forgets that God is in control and you can not stop the events that are about to happen. I prefer to look at it as how can I profit from this.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The writer preaches fear and he repeates the same idea over and over and over again. He said if you want more information go to his web site. He then repeated this at least 100 times throughout the book. I think I got it by the third time.

Any additional comments?

Some of his thinking is fundamentally flawed. For example he says the currency is going to fail, yet he says to put some of you emergancy fund in US currency. His views on the books of Daniel and Revelation are fundamentally flawed. Isreal can mean the nation, the particular race of people or the religious group. When the bible refers to Isreal in future events it is refering to the remnant children of god not the secular nation of isreal.
