87 year old economist and author Thomas Sowell, PhD, has published over 40 books and hundreds of newspaper columns. 27 of those books are available at Audible. I usually purchase all of his books in hardcover, but Discrimination and Disparities is the 4th of his books I have reviewed at Audible. He dedicates this book to 81 year old Dr. Walter E. Williams who is an economist and his ideological soulmate in the classical liberal movement.
No one writes and speaks about facts and statistics more convincingly than Thomas Sowell. Discrimination and Disparities, released this month, should be required reading for every college freshman in the US. At 5 hours it is a short read, but long enough to destroy many commonly held economic myths. Since Sowell stopped writing his newspaper columns 15 months ago, I have missed them. This book reminds me yet again of the intellectual giant that Thomas Sowell is.
Robertson Dean's narration is excellent.
I recommend this book as well as ALL of the others Thomas Sowell has written.

This is an excellent addition to Sowell’s writing. It has many new, much needed, insights and analysis. He further draws on many of his prior writings and sharpens their implications. It is a powerful distillation of much of his work. He is an invaluable source of clear thinking on complex topics.

Thoughtful book leaving lots of room for debate. But the enjoyment of the book was reduced by a poor narration. The reader has a good tone but is monotonous and overly formal, like reading a legal document!
