In the Cato University Home Study Course "Learning About Liberty" you will find a wealth of insight, knowledge, and inspiration. The volume sets out, at the beginning, to define terms. This is not boring, but informative and very stimulating. Then in the following hours (which will pass quickly), ideas related to liberty and justice are outlined in a clear, concise, organized fashion.

The readings is great. There is a narrator and an individual who reads the quotations as they appear. This is very helpful and keeps interest. The writing is, of course, outstanding. Don't miss this wonderful introduction to some of the most wonderful thinkers we have seen. Do not be put off by the topic, wade right in. The water is fine!

Not only is the content fantastic (wonderful surveys of great works on freedom, free-market economics, the Constitution, etc.) but the quality of the production is first-rate.

Using different, talented speakers to form a seamless tapestry of sound and thought, the producers offer a compelling and engaging course which will entertain, educate, and enlighten.

A big FIVE STARS for the first audiobook I felt compelled to review.

Thank you CATO and Blackstone!
