A direct and honest approach for Libertarian answe
Yes, if they wanted to know more about the Libertarian ideals, as I did.
The question and answer format works in terms of organizing the vast material (from animal rights to gun control and every issue in between.) The narrator, too, was an asset to the material.
Her voice. Intelligent and warm. Her narration flows excellently with a smile in her tone. It's arresting to listen to and I never got tired of it.
No, I listened in sections, on my morning commute.
A well done audiobook and I learned a lot. I didn't agree with all in it but I could see the reasonable theory behind almost all of the issue as discussed in the book. I'm glad I got it - it widened my understanding about what the word "Libertarian" really means.
A very well narratred primer of libertarian ideals
Yes, any of my politically-minded friends who are Independents, some Republicans, and Libertarians would find this to be an excellent audiobook. I would also recommend it to the political novice seeking more information about liberty and politics. I don't think Democrats would particularly agree with the vision in this work, however. The audiobook offers a wealth of information and good insights on virtually all topics as to how we could approach our lives, civic relationships, and government with a libertarian This audiobook lays out very clear, very accessible information about what Libertarians actually believe, from the source, with grace and even some humor. There are also roadmaps offered for how to practice more libertarian lifestyles, although some of it seems difficult to achieve unless EVERYONE is on board with this philosophy.
I enjoyed listening to the Questions and Answers at a good pace, not to slow and not to fast. The narrator's voice is perfect for this and she kept my attention throughout the listen. I was a little sorry when it was over because her tones are soothing and also interesting to the ear.
I have listened to this narrator in other books and this is a departure for her in terms of the non-fiction subject matter. But Marie Rose's inflection was spot on and gave off just the right vibe - friendly, knowledgeable, not preachy, not hard sell. She conveyed the subject matter in a sensible, light and pleasant way that didn't come off as bossy or argumentative. When people discuss politics they can be sometimes condescending, but the narrator thankfully avoided being heavy-handed with the political opinions in the book.
I learned a lot more about Libertarianism from listening than I ever thought I would. The notions that Libertarians have on animal rights and animal conservation, for example, was not something I had thought about before. I'm still digesting all of the thoughts and information in this book; it definitely gave me not just food, but a whole banquet for thought.
I was given this audiobook in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
