Audible Update…

I haven’t had a chance to catch up on Audible “reading” for a few months now, so here’s a little “audible update”. Possible good new reads:

The Ascent of Money: A financial History of the World (11.5 hrs, $18)
The World is Curved: Hidden Dangers to the Global Economy (10.5 hrs, $21)
The Partnership: The Making of Goldman Sachs (33hrs, $32)
The Pixar Touch: The Making of a Company (9.25 hrs, $18)
Wealth, War and Wisdom (12 hrs, $25)

I’ll probably go with “Wealth, War and Wisdom” first as it has a quite interesting premise… We’ll see.

Upcoming Reading List…

On top of the actual paper copy of “Founders at Work” that I’m reading for some reason, I’ve put together the list of audible books I’ll be going through next…

Does America Need a Foreign Policy?
By: Henry Kissinger

Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling
By: Ross King

The Enlightened Despots (Unabridged)
By: Geoffrey Bruun

China Road: A Journey into the Future of a Rising Power (Unabridged)
By: Rob Gifford

I’ve already started listening to Kissinger’s foreign policy book and it’s an absolutely incredible read. If you’re interested in international relations and recent history, I think you’ll also find this one enlightening. I might put it up there with Legacy of Ashes, the history of the CIA, which was also an incredible read!
