THE GREAT DEGENERATION How Institutions Decay and Economics Die

by | Read by Paul Slack

History • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Banks, mortgages, social clubs--nothing escapes this examination of the social ecosystems of modern life. Narrator Paul Slack manages to convey the dense explanations in a way that makes them accessible for the non-academic listener. His pronunciation is crisp, his delivery consistent, and he makes long sentences easily understood by pausing when necessary for emphasis. The listener could get lost in the building arguments, which require an understanding of the ideas preceding them. Yet Slack's variations in tone, pitch, and cadence draw one's attention to the key concepts, making comprehension of the book's themes much easier. The author has a strong personality, and Slack's delivery also conveys this to the listener. M.R. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2013]
