Mises: Last Knight of Liberalism (audio book)

I've been listening to the audio book of this, available from Mises.org. If you find the life of Ron Paul inspiring, this will blow you away. Mises could not only say 'I went', but that 'he was sent', to get him out of the way, and hopefully die on the Eastern Front. That's how much of a pain in the ass he was to Austro-Hungarian statists! But he didn't die, he came back a decorated hero, and so they had to find other ways to side line him. I've only got as far as 1919, and can say it is one of the best books I've 'read' for quite a while.
This book is well recounted for audio, and an enlightening look at a man of whom we know more about his theories, than the man. We only know this much 'cos the Germans raided his offices, and the papers finally ended up in an archive in Moscow.
