THE LOGIC OF LIFE The Rational Economics of an Irrational World

by | Read by L.J. Ganser

Business & Finance • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2008

The spry narration of L.J. Ganser keeps this audiobook moving as author Tim Harford, a British economist, seeks to prove how cold-hearted economic concerns permeate myriad aspects of life. That topic would be dull in the hands of a lesser writer, but Harford favors examples that catch the imagination, such as a classroom experiment that shed light on how racism can arise "rationally." Harford is British, and half his examples involve London, so a British narrator would have been appropriate. But Ganser, an American, was a fine choice. His self-assured, energetic, and occasionally bemused delivery is a good match for Harford's breezy writing style. E.D.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
