GRAND PURSUIT The Story of Economic Genius

by | Read by John Bedford Lloyd, Anne Twomey

History • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Nasar's book is about pioneers in the field of economics and how their ideas transformed the industrial world from one of poverty and want into a collection of wealthy, prosperous states. Each chapter is a character study of giants such as Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes, and Milton Friedman. Two narrators handle the vocal duties. Anne Twomey has a reassuring, somewhat husky voice that is well suited to the material. She tells the story in an even tone and infuses her reading with the sense of wonder and purpose that must have accompanied some of the lively early ideas. John Bedford Lloyd has a full, deep voice that is less expressive but still makes the narrative fresh and vital. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2011]
