Description

THE ROAD TO SERFDOM by Friedrich A. Hayek (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

"This book should be read by everybody. It is no use saying that there are a great many people who are not interested in politics; the political issue discussed by Dr. Hayek concerns every single member of the community." (The Listener)

This classic offers persuasive warnings against the dangers of central planning and dictatorial government. Originally published in 1944, it has profoundly influenced many of the world’s great leaders, from Churchill in the 1940s to Reagan in the 1980s.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, William Hughes. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

"This book has become a true classic: essential reading for everyone who is seriously interested in politics in the broadest and least partisan sense." (Milton Friedman)

•EXPERIENCE. About 9.5 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players.

•PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap.

•SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing.

•CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average.

•CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come.

•OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed.

•AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again.

•TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed.

•FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features. We are very responsive to our listeners and appreciate all feedback and ideas.

RATING: Suitable for adults interested in political and economic arguments from revered scholars.

_

The Road to Serfdom has profoundly influenced many of the world’s great leaders: from Orwell and Churchill, to Reagan and Thatcher. The book offers persuasive warnings against the dangers of central planning. Hayek shows that the idea that “under a dictatorial government you can be free inside, ” is nothing less than a grievous fallacy. Such dictatorial governments prevent individual freedoms, and they often use psychological measures to perform “an alteration of the character of the people.” Gradually, the people yield their individuality to the point where they become part of the collectivist mass.
