I’m generally a reader. I read fast (over 1,000 words/minute, unless it’s very technical or containing unfamiliar concepts), which makes it my preferred way to get information.
But, most people – particularly those in the 40 and under crowd – are not like that. They prefer to get their information through video.
So, I decided to make the time to start working at improving my consumption of documentaries/commentary-type videos, and pass along some recommendations.
One of those recommendations is “Thomas Sowell: Common Sense in a Senseless World”. It tells the story of Sowell’s life and influences, through interviews with those who’ve known and interacted with him, through interviews, and in his own written words. It’s a great introduction to his body of work, and should provide some incentive to read it.
