Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Only if they are really interested in the subject
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The subject I find interesting. Change the word story for subject in non-fiction books.
How could the performance have been better?
Someone removed the hi-mid and higher frequencies in the narrators voice, which leaves the recording sounding muffled.
I don't care for the narrator's style either. Hi prosody sounds stuffy.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Despite the title asking a question about the future which is notoriously difficult to foretell, the articles of this book shed intelligent light on the world we live in. Very enjoyable and thought provoking, especially as different view points are expounded and the views of the other writers are commented upon. This makes the book not just a collection of 5 individual articles but can be likened to a piece of classical music that consists of several movements that are related to each other. The authors call themselves a quintet and their collective form that of point and counter point.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Does Capitalism Have a Future??
To stay with the musical analogy, the conclusion is a splendid finale because it summarises concisely the most recent sociological movements without speculating too much into the future. This was very helpful reading for someone trying to make sense of the world we live in and pointing out areas which to investigate further.
Have you listened to any of Stephen Hoye’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I have not listened to other performances but I found this one very well read and a suitable voice and tone for this type of academic book.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, but individual chapters can be listened to in one sitting, and then again after having finished the whole book.
Any additional comments?
It probably is worth also having a printed copy of this book.
Shockingly bad. Completely economically illiterate. Unless you are interested in radical left and its understanding of the current economic and social systems, avoid.
