Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity and Poverty
Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity and Poverty

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing & Useful, 22 Mar 2012
This is a refreshing take on how countries can work to achieve economic and political success. It uses examples from history (which is written by fallible humans) to identify the weaknesses and successes of previous nations, to help understand what works and what doesn't. This is surely a useful book for any economist, policy maker or leader of any business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 5 Feb 2012
This review is from: The Library Book (Hardcover)
If you have ever benefited from a library in any way, shape or form you will love this book. The collection of stories and personal library experiences will make you laugh, smile and most of all want to jump up, dig out your dusty library card and go and explore your local library. At least that's how it made me feel! I loved it, definitely would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and touching, 13 Oct 2011
This book will fill your heart with faith and take you back to a society so similar yet so foreign to the one you live in, and reflect the torments of having faith in a material world. A really spectacular novel by M. Bahmanpour and a must read. I am an avid book reader and really recommend this book. Look forward to seeing more like it.
