These selections from the many writings of Thomas Sowell over a period of half a century cover social, economic, cultural, legal, educational, and political issues. The sources range from Dr. Sowell’s letters, books, newspaper columns, and articles in both scholarly journals and popular magazines. The topics range from latetalking children to tax cuts for the rich, baseball, race, war, the role of judges, medical care, and the rhetoric of politicians. These topics are dealt with by drawing sometimes on history, sometimes on economics, and sometimes on a sense of humor.
“Engaging and accessible…Sowell’s careful explicating of and grappling with issues allow his thoughts to be clearly exhibited, understood, and welcomed. Even leftist thinkers will appreciate Sowell’s personal charm and intellectual rigor.” (Publishers Weekly)

I loved the way Robertson Dean reads this just like he completely comprehends it all. Thomas Sowell is genius with a side of chips! He's very witty, too. I'm listening to this collection of articles and essays for the second time!
The logic behind the thinking process is very compelling. When I listened to it the first time I kept saying,
He actually reads this very much the way I could hear Thomas Sowell read it.
Logical Thinking for and Increasingly Illogical World.
I just bought one of his audio books on economics! Does that make me a nerd? I don't care!
