Free Audiobooks. Sort of. makes available vouchers for free audiobooks as part of the promotion process. I have such vouchers for The Machinery of Freedom and Future Imperfect.  I will give them to anyone willing to listen to a book and agree that, if he likes it, he will put a favorable review up somewhere that others can see it — a blog, Facebook, Amazon, ...  . 

I have vouchers for both the UK and the US marketplace. If you are interested, give me  contact information either here, via my email, or via FB.

I'd be happy to listen to the Machinery of Freedom. I'm frankly concerned about putting my email address on a public site like this. Do you have an email address where you can be reached?

Given that I don't have any other platform where I could ask this question; I'm going to do so here. What better place anyway? It might serve as a reference later on.

I was rather a lazy teenager who instead of going deep into your books and your father's, I found comfort on YouTube videos. Fast forward to 2020 I'm in my 20s and luckily I started reading.

Enough quackery already. Is there a suggested order I should read your books and your father's? If you believe I need some pre-requisites before I read any of y'all's bibliography, I'm all ears as well.

Disclaimer: I am not looking for a magic recipe. I figured it was a good idea to ask. I'm willing to accept a 'go figure it' or 'there is no such a thing'.

Yours truly,

Completely randomly, I'm here because I just spent a credit to re-read (well, listen this time) Future Imperfect and wondered if you've been blogging lately. What are the odds :)

All of my books are intended to stand alone. The only two with a close relation are Price Theory and Hidden Order, the first being a textbook and the second a rewrite intended for the interested layman who wanted to teach himself economics, so there is no good reason to read both. Aside from that, any order should do.

My father's first book aimed at a popular audience was _Capitalism and Freedom_, which is still worth reading. _Free to Choose_ was followed by _The Tyranny of the Status Quo_, so should probably be read in that order. I don't think any of his other books are in any particular order — the main distinction is between books aimed mostly at his fellow economists, such as the Monetary History, and books aimed at a general audience, such as the three I mentioned.

I hope that helps.
