Narrators: chill out!!!

All of the narrators put far too much dramatic emphasis into their voices -- they must have trained in the "breaking news" school of voiceovers! Calm down and channel your Cronkite instead.

Interesting but missing some details

Interesting book on history of taxes. I will say it is deeply upsetting though when an author falsely identifies slavery as not being a primary reason for the civil war. This is demonstrably untrue and is the answer white Christian conservatives want us to believe because they don't want to admit slavery was that bad. It's also unfortunate the author incorrectly states that socialist countries are worse off than American capitalism. AGAIN, demonstrably untrue. Socialist countries fair much better than our capitalist culture. Many of the Socialist countries that aren't as thriving has to do with the fact that American government has intervened in their democratic elections. Please do your research before writing a book. Thank you.

Fun little book for market geeks.

A short, entertaining little history of crookedness on Wall Street. Well voiced, and doesn't outstay its welcome. Gets a little too bogged down at the end in a debate over the legal technicalities of insider trading.
