1.0 out of 5 stars A disaster of a novel, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flood (Kindle Edition)
This book has no literary merit whatsoever. It is clichéd and the characters are one-dimensional. It is also incredibly tedious. I began to read it because it was chosen by a book club member. After reading about a quarter of it I could not take any more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and witty defence of freedom of speech, 5 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Steyn has a gift for making fools of his opponents with his sharp wit.
This is an important book in the defence of one of our fundamental freedoms - free speech - which is under threat from, astonishingly, those who purport to be defending human rights.

5.0 out of 5 stars The economics book that everybody should read, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the book that debunks all the Keynesian nonsense that has damaged the advanced western economies. It provides a lucid explanation of basic economics through one basic lesson - when considering what economic policy to pursue it is vital to consider not just what is seen - i.e. the obvious consequences of that policy - but also what is not seen. This is sometimes known as the 'broken window fallacy' first set out by the eminent 19th century French economist Bastiat. We see versions of this still cropping up today - even by Nobel prize winning economists who claim that such things as disasters (natural or man made) can be good for the economy by providing work for reconstruction. The idea that destruction of things that are not obsolete is a good thing could only be believed by an academic economist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly different from Hollywood vampires, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Let the Right One in [DVD] (DVD)
Recent developments in the vampire genre in Hollywood are aimed at the teen market with good-looking vampires (and humans) and sex very much to the forefront. If that's your cup of tea, don't buy Let the Right One In. The two main characters are children - a bullied boy and a vampire girl who find they have much in common as outcasts and begin a charming if deadly relationship. It's very dark, there is plenty of blood if that's your thing, and retributive justice of the extremely harsh variety.

1.0 out of 5 stars Annoying, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can understand the theory behing repeating phrases over and over again to music, but I found it extremely irritating. I could not listen for more than a few minutes. This is not to say that some won't find it useful - but it was not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Do you think the BBC is free of political bias? This short book shows how the BBC has been used by the activist green movement. It carefully sets out the facts about how the BBC tried to hide the fact that a seminar purporting to identify the science of global warming and how to put it across in programming was not a meeting of BBC executives with climate scientists (as was claimed) but a meeting with activists whose agenda was to put over their case through the BBC.

5.0 out of 5 stars A massive achievement, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a profound, enlightening and entertaining history of economic thought. Did you think economic theory arose fully fledged out of the imagination of Adam Smith? Think again. In this massive work Rothbard examines the whole of economic thought from the Greeks and the Chinese up to the present day including such significant contributors as Thomas Aquinas, the Spanish Scholastics, mercantilism, Locke, and the French laissez faire school to name but a few. He shows that Adam Smith was not an original by any means and that even Keynes had precursors. This should be compulsory reading for any genuine student of economics. There is an unfortunate tendency in human affairs to regard the present age as all knowing and our predecessors as ignorant. Although this might be true in certain aspects of the hard sciences, in the study of human action it is not the case and there is much to be learned and understood about economics from looking at the past.

I found the repetitive phrases with the background music highly irritating. Perhaps this is helpful to some people, but it was torture for me.


Making Economic Sense
Making Economic Sense
by Murray N. Rothbard
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and erudite, 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Making Economic Sense (Paperback)
Rothbard makes the 'dismal science' come to life with his ascerbic comments on the maladministration of the US economy. Should be read by all who want to understand how our leaders keep making a mess of things.
