Government Also Uses Fear

A lot of governmental units also use fear to their advantage. Politicians raise fear and offer help. Police raises fear to get their budget. It is a simple and effective strategy: Create fear and offer solution.
“We feel more in response to violent crime than property crime. We feel more in response to murder than a punch in the nose. We feel more in response to the murder of a little girl than a young man. And truth be told, we feel more for victims we can personally relate to than those on the far side of racial and class lines. The media’s image of crime may turn reality upside down, but it is a very accurate reflection of our feelings.”

Book or Audiobooks?

Personally, I prefer audiobooks. It's fun, and I can listen when I'm doing something else. It also makes other activities (e.g., jogging) a lot more fun. For more detail about audiobooks, please read [this post].

There is one more reason that may encourage you to go for the audiobook version. You can get it now for FREE. Audible offers you a free trial for 14 days. Even if you get the book and cancel the subscription right away (so that you don't have to pay), you can keep the book. And, don't worry if you lost the audiobook file. Just log into audible.com. You can keep downloading the over and over again.

   About the summary: It takes time to finish up a book. And, when you do, sometimes, you want to review what you learn from the book. If you do not make  notes as you read, you might have to go through the book once again. This can be time-consuming when you are dealing with a book. But you can still flip through the book and locate what you are looking for.

However, when the material is an audiobook, it is extremely hard to locate a specific part of content. Most likely you will have to listen to the entire audiobook once again.

This book summary will help solve the pain of having to go through the book all over again.

I am leaving out the details of the books. Most books have interesting examples and case studies, not included here. Reading the original book would be much more entertaining and enlightening. If you like the summary, you may want to get the original from the source below.
