A great book

(5 stars)

An excellent read of a fascinating book. Kudos to the reader for keeping five volumes of economic theory interesting. Topical, given the dependence politicians of the Right seem to place on the text.

I would urge anyone with an interest in the Economy to listen to "The Wealth of Nations" as read by Mr. Escalera. DJ

I recommend this reading

(5 stars)

The reader had good pacing, pronunciation, and tone. Smith is very thorough, which is good for interested listeners and bad for somewhat interested listeners.

Historically, Factually, Financially Awesome

(5 stars)

I love how Adam Smith dives into history and uses critical Analytics in order to decipher the real meaning behind wealth, wealth distribution and the value of many things that have never changed in their principal worth.

(5 stars)

A great book but there is a problem with the files...they get cut off midway whether you listen or download. Maybe reloading the original files will help.
