Publisher's Summary

These selections from the many writings of Thomas Sowell over a period of half a century cover social, economic, cultural, legal, educational, and political issues. The sources range from Dr. Sowell’s letters, books, newspaper columns, and articles in both scholarly journals and popular magazines. The topics range from latetalking children to tax cuts for the rich, baseball, race, war, the role of judges, medical care, and the rhetoric of politicians. These topics are dealt with by drawing sometimes on history, sometimes on economics, and sometimes on a sense of humor.


What the Critics Say

“Engaging and accessible…Sowell’s careful explicating of and grappling with issues allow his thoughts to be clearly exhibited, understood, and welcomed. Even leftist thinkers will appreciate Sowell’s personal charm and intellectual rigor.” ( Publishers Weekly)

Yet more enjoyable brilliance from Sowell.

Love his books and this neat little collection is no exception. if you've never read him before, this book would be a good introduction.

Reality and the Intellectual are opposites.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Very informative about so much, which is not really what it looks like on the surface, as defined by the Statist. The "do goder" leads to negative consequences for those the Statist tries to help.
