Where does Power Systems rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
"Power Systems" is one of the best audiobooks I have read.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
Noam Chomsky is one of the hardest-working and best researchers in the field of contemporary politics, power systems, American colonialism, foreign wars, the occupy movement, post-secondary education (he teaches at M.I.T.) the 1%, poverty in America, and the widening gap between the super-rich and everyone else. This book covers more territory than many of his other more specialized titles, and brings the reader up to the past year or so (2012). If you want a good overview of the problems facing America and the west, and what needs to be done to fix them, this is a very good place to start.

I really enjoyed this audio book. It's quite a relaxed format and covers a wide range of topics. Sometimes the questions from Barsamian are a bit fawning, but generally it is to the point and is very interesting. There's even a section on Chomsky's work on language, which isn't a subject I knew much about so it was interesting to hear him speak about it.
I'd really recommend this audio book if you are interested in Chomsky's views.

Noam Chomsky is perhaps the most influential speaker and activist of our time. He speaks the truth about how the world truly works.
every body should listen to this audio book to become informed about US imperial actions which ultimately impact the whole globe for the worse, threatening world peace and the environment
