Publisher's Summary

A Spontaneous Order: The Capitalist Case for a Stateless Society is an astonishingly concise, rigorous, and accessible presentation of anarcho-capitalist ideals. It covers a wide range of topics including: money and banking, monopolies and cartels, insurance, health care, law, security, poverty, education, environmentalism, and more! To enjoy this compelling listen requires no previous political, philosophical, or economic knowledge as all uncommon concepts are defined and explained in a simple yet uncompromising manner. Take heed, this work is liable to cause radical paradigm shifts in your understanding of both the state and free market.

Great content, shame about sleep-inducing audio

The comuter-generated voice was mind numbing. You will be listening to a sampled voice, which works for phone menus, but in a long book you will be listening to 10,000 sentences with the exact same bland tone and vocal inflection AS EVERY OTHER SENTENCE. You will be asleep after a short time. This type of audio should be free or public domain, not charged at a price like a human recording.
I recommend this excellent book 100% for its content, but please buy the hard copy, unless you can find an audio version recorded by an actual human being.

Great book, great info, bad narrator.

In audible app change speed setting to 1.25 instead of 1. You'll thank me later.

starts excruciatingly textbookish, finishes free.

Once surviving the first few chapters, it became a joy. it's nice to hear anarchy defined and intelligently defended.

"End the State. Free the Market. Liberate your Mind"

after I finished Chase Rachels' Spontaneous Order, I could think of nothing so much as, Pierre-Simon Laplace's, oft quoted, expiation to Napoleon when he asked about, the lack of God, in his theory.
"I have no need for that hypothesis"

There are better books to read on the subject.

He presents no original ideas and just regurgitates what has been already been said by liberty minded individuals. A better book would be "For a New Liberty" by Murray Rothbard, "A Road to Serfdom" by Friedrich A. Hayek, "The Machinery of Freedom" by David Freedman, "The Myth of the Rational Voter" by Bryan Caplan, etc. I could keep going on an on with the recommendations. Just know there are much better books to read on this subject.
