Even though the book contains too much details (names, titles of books, dates etc) I gave it 5 stars because it is a must for all economists. Even though it has a lot of jargon its basic principles can easily be understood by persons with basic economic background. It is not just economics, it is philosophy, economics and governance based on principles. It criticizes socialism and governed interventionism with arguments.

I was amazed to find a 31-hour biography of someone so relatively obscure. While the book does not really explore Mises' flaws, and the author is obviously a fan, that is to be expected in a book sponsored by the Mises Institute. Hülsmann is not on a level with the great biographers, but it is still very well done.
The narration is clear through about 1.8x, my only complaint being I am not a fan of accents in quotes during non-fiction books.
This is economic history. It gave me a greater understanding of his time and how he got to develop his views. It was even exciting, at times, and the book gave me a better understanding of recent history.
