批評家のレビュー

"Endlessly insightful and full of surprises - exactly what you would expect from Tim Harford." (Bill Bryson)

"Every Tim Harford book is cause for celebration." (Malcolm Gladwell)

あらすじ・解説

In Fifty Things That Made the Modern Economy, the revolutionary, acclaimed book, radio series and podcast, best-selling economist Tim Harford introduced us to a selection of 50 radical inventions that changed the world. Along the way he entertained us with a myriad of great stories and revealed some of the most surprising landmarks in our history.

Now, in this new audiobook, Harford once again brings us an array of remarkable, memorable, curious and often unexpected 'things' - inventions that have significantly moved the needle on our journey to the complex world economy we live in today. 

From the brick, blockchain and the bicycle to fire, the factory and fundraising and from Solar PV and the pencil to the postage stamp, this brilliant and enlightening collection resonates, fascinates and stimulates. It is a wonderful blend of insight and inspiration from one of Britain's finest non-fiction storytellers.

Good continuation.

Good continuation from the last fifty things. I was hoping that one of these on the list would surprise me though which it didn't unfortunately. Reading's serviceable but not fantastic.

50 more fascinating stories

Having loved the first "Fifty Things That Made The Modern Economy", I preordered this as soon as I could, and finished it yesterday. Another satifsying glimpse into items that we take for granted, or had forgotten their contribution.
