This is the second book about Dan Randolph even if it was writte well before Powersat.
The earth is heading towards a greenhouse cliff, a sudden climate change that will destroy much of the planet in ten years if something isn't done soon. The ice caps will melt. Cities will be flooded. Millions will die. When Randolph tries to let people know what's going on and try to help orchestrate a plan to avoid this catastrophe, government officials from the Global Economic Council (the GEC) confiscate his company, imprison him, and silence his scientific team.
The story continues and as usual it quite good and i find the book hard to put down, or stop listen to if you, like me listen to the audio book.
Stefan Rudnicki does an very excellent job adjusting his voice to each of the characters so you get a god idea of who speach. Speech tags become redundant. He captures a variety of accents well, and the voices match the personalities. He tries hard to get the Japanese right, but it doesn't roll off his tongue well.
Its even a bit scary to think that this book was written back in 1993 and quite well talks about some of the problems we have been facing today. The tsunamis in Indonesia and the flooding of New Orleans.

Would you listen to Empire Builders again? Why?
Yes, I would listens again, I enjoyed this book
What other book might you compare Empire Builders to and why?
I think I could compare this title to the Orion series, there is a lot of space travel and exploration in both
What about Stefan Rudnicki’s performance did you like?
I like Stefan Rudnicki, he is a very good narrator for truck drivers because he keeps his voice at a fairly constant volume, which is nice because I don't have to keep fooling with the volume control while I'm driving

No, I'm generally not an emotional person
