THE PENGUIN AND THE LEVIATHAN How Cooperation Triumphs Over Self-Interest

by | Read by Marc Cashman

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Benkler, professor of entrepreneurial legal studies at Harvard, discusses the humanistic preference for collaboration over the fundamental self-interest espoused in business, technology, and culture. Marc Cashman’s narration is unhurried, relaxed, and amiable. The author makes a strong argument for the possibility of world transformation through human cooperation and shared goals. However, despite Cashman’s vocal energy, the book is by turns repetitive and academic. Interesting references to Obama’s presidential campaign, the Toyota shop floor, and the international cooperation of lobstermen flesh out the discussion.
