I'm listening again, nothing that is in the lectures was frivolous. The stories and tidbits were story telling gold. I was raised atheist, a bit anti Christian since we are a Christian majority country. But wow I want to be Catholic and share in the dynamic and dysfunctional family.

Ever since we produced our course Thinking About Capitalism, customers have expressed interest in a follow-up course that could help them understand socialism in the same way. After much consideration, we determined that it actually would be more beneficial to create a course that compares and contrasts the two major global economic theories, examining them in ways that move past the polemics many of us are used to and looking at these systems as they relate to one another and the world at large.

every lecture was not just full of information, historical reference, and backed by great analysis but I found the lecturer very entertaining. knowledgeable would be an understatement, and his on topic antidotes and personal stories kept a potentially dull subject a joy to listen. I'm listening a second time,

The science fiction genre has become increasingly influential in mainstream popular culture, evolving into one of the most engaging storytelling tools we use to think about technology and consider the shape of the future. Along the way, it has also become one of the major lenses we use to explore important philosophical questions. The origins of science fiction are most often thought to trace to Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein, a story born from a night of spooky tale-telling by the fireside that explores scientific, moral, and ethical questions that were of great concern in the 19th century - and that continue to resonate today.

I can't see looking at science fiction any more other than with new eyes and much more respect. this book covered it all in human psychology. profound ideas and thorough explanations, never a dull moment, and now a lot of movies to rewatch. I can't wait until a new lecture series is done.

Just so much if a story. maybe a fault that the writer had to go in different directions to fully explain the ancient history, but no other way would have been better.

I will not say that what is in this book is common sense. it should be but most of the common sense out there causes more problems. thus is the first time I listen to a real action plan and plain realistic situations. I will be relistening soon
