    "This book should be read by every American. Its content remains relevant decades after it was written, and it delves deeply into the balance between government and freedom. This book explains exceptionally well why free markets are great, and why it is actually necessary to have government regulation at times. It's a well-balanced and insightful book that anyone interested in economics should own."

    "This book tells a cohesive story of how the Nazis managed to come to power during the World War II era. It's very educational as to how such a nefarious regime could take advantage of the masses. I feel it's important to understand this because we as a society should always be on alert to prevent this from happening again in the future."

    "I saw this book recommended by Ben Shapiro, and as I've read quite a few of his recommendations, I trusted him, and he was not wrong.
