A great, anecdote-rich layman's guide to trade
- D. Littman
Great book, good narrator, poorly edited narration
No, it seemed like no one really paid attention to editing the narration, and there were many times when you could hear the narrator stop, take a drink and swallow. This may seem minor, but when you are listening to it for eight hours, it becomes distracting and a little gross.
There were no real characters - only people involved in a chain of global trade.
Only if I knew that someone had actually edited out all of the swallowing.
No. I listened to it for a class. It was interesting, but not interesting enough to listen to for eight hours straight.
The story was fascinating, and I think the message in this book is one that we all need to hear as we learn to work within an ever-changing global economy. The author brought up points that I'd never thought about and delivered them in a way the encouraged further exploration and thought. She did a great job of telling the story in a way that showed everyone's point of view, and she came across as non-judgmental and knowledgeable.
