What made the experience of listening to The Spirit Level the most enjoyable?
The Spirit Level is one of those rare examples of social science being science. There are centuries of theoretical discussions about how best to allocate wealth, but this book actually provides data. The authors do their best to keep it entertaining, but it is occasionally demanding on the reader. Downloading the pdf file is a must to understanding the book. I hope the Spirit Level is read by every policy maker in the world.

I was on a quest to find someone to explain today’s America to me…and, finally, "The Spirit Level" did. In graph after graph, the book lay out the stats--how growing income inequality in a society sends it down the drain. It blew my mind.
For me, this book is a turning point. Now, I know the bottom line. Now, I can turn my attention to what to do about it. This is a hugely important book--I strongly recommend it. Easy reading, graphs are as clear as day. They're available as a pdf from the publisher, Tantor. Mind blowing what's been happening to our country!
