- Perfect month/January challenge
2. Basic Economics, Fifth Edition, A Common Sense Guide to the Economy by Thomas Sowell.
This was really good. Could (and likely will) listen to it again. I really love Thomas Sowell. I feel he is more of a classical liberal/libertarian than the quotations often used by Republicans and other conservatives use to promote and underscore their particular ideology.
3. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, Part 1.
This audio book will likely take me all year. At 63 hours its a mammoth (and slightly scary) undertaking. I’m also not entirely sure how I feel about the narration yet, its a little dry for my taste. I’ll see how it goes. When commuting Five Finger Death Punch often wins out over an hour of Atlas. If it starts to feel like a chore I’m ditching it.
4. The Consolations of Philosophy by Alain De Botton
Meh. Its okay. I prefer his speaking stuff to his writing stuff.
5. Existentialism for beginners by David Cogswell
I’ve decided I really like this ‘For beginners’ series. (mostly because it comes with pictures). This is actually a little bit of a cheat since I finished this at the end of December already… but my achievement list for January seemed a bit shallow and I felt the need to bulk things up some (you know, for self edification purposes)
