THE PRICE OF CIVILIZATION Reawakening American Virtue and Prosperity

by | Read by Richard McGonagle

Business & Finance • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

The author of THE END OF POVERTY and COMMON WEALTH offers another blockbuster philosophical treatise. Whether one agrees with him or not, this book provokes the listener into thinking about how and why we got where we are and how to get out of the societal and global jams we’re in. Narrator Richard McGonagle grabs our preconceptions about the world and twists them, possibly irrevocably, as he delivers the text. McGonagle’s excellent pacing overcomes the sometimes tedious nature of the details that are a necessary part of the work. His use of vocal inflection brings this simple, direct narrative almost to the level of a fully voiced listening experience. M.C. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
