A lot of repeat information for about the first half with some, not much more detail or clarity of the first book. So I wouldn't waste the money buying the first rendering. The remaining 15 or so chapters are packed full of new and some repeat information for clarity purposes because there is a lot going on.
Now about the content, it had and has me pissed off knowing all the misinformation that has been pushed to the general public while the greedy bastards are still continuing to conquer, destroy, kill, manipulate, ..... and no one is held accountable. The outsiders pay dearly on a continuous basis without the slightest smidgen of guilt or compassion. Pure evil is the best way to describe it.

After enjoying the first half of the book I was thoroughly disappointed with the rest. If I wanted to hear about shamanic healing and tree hugging I'd have bought a different book. The author thinks he's James Bond but comes across as more of a Walter Mitty.

What did you like most about The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man?
If, like I did, you expected this book to be a sequel to the first gripping tale, you will be, as I was, somewhat disappointed. It is for the most-part,the retelling of the same story, albeit with a few extra bits added. The last section of the book does indeed add fresh information which is interesting. It just felt like so much of the book was superfluous, if you had already read the original.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Angry, as I was the first time I read the book.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Made me angry, and wanting to change the system.

What disappointed you about The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man?
The first 4 hours is a solid 4-star story with interesting stories of shadow organisations and unethical businesses only slightly derailed by the author's cocky tone and unbacked claims.
The following 8 hours is a longwinded self-flagelating reflection on whether or not the author should write the book (spoiler alert: he does) that brings very little new to the table in terms of shadowy conspiracies and focuses on how the author felt about his actions - with multiple interviews with other figures who only ever seem to spout long rambling monologues mirroring the author's own thoughts.
Has The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man put you off other books in this genre?
Just by this author
Have you listened to any of Tom Taylorson’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I haven't heard his other performances but generally enjoyed the narration
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The first 4 hours was genuinely entertaining, if I'd known it didn't get back to that stuff I would have stopped reading there and been happy.
Any additional comments?
I'd rather have paid for just the first publication of this book and gotten 8 hours of my life back.
I assume the beginning was the original edition, but the tedious and highly repetitive chapters that follow contain scant data and are nothing that cannot be gleaned by an understanding of 21st century America. get the original edition.
