Random House presents the audiobook edition of Talking to My Daughter About the Economy: A Brief History of Capitalism by Yanis Varoufakis. Why is there so much inequality? In this short book, world-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis sets out to answer his 11-year-old daughter Xenia's deceptively simple question. Using personal stories and famous myths, he explains what the economy is and why it has the power to shape our lives.

Wonderful storytelling and keeps the promise of explaining key economic forces shaping our lives. At times it changes pace and becomes a bit complex to follow, but still a remarkable and outstanding work. Would be great to have more of these kind of books.
