    It's really difficult to argue with Harris in this simple, very compelling essay. Anyone in the secular community would be wise to read/listen to this book, and perhaps more than once.

    "Forty-four percent of the American population is convinced that Jesus will return to judge the living and the dead sometime in the next 50 years," writes Sam Harris. "Imagine the consequences if any significant component of the U.S. government actually believed that the world was about to end and that its ending would be glorious. The fact that nearly half of the American population apparently believes this...should be considered a moral and intellectual emergency."

  • "The Inside Story"

    Overall

    I read Plouffe's book and Game Change by Heilemann and Halperin within a month of one another. And I enjoyed both fully. David Plouffe does a great job outlining the things the Obama camp did right throughout the push to the white house. Their strategy was simple and sound. Win Iowa and slug it out from there. He also talks briefly about he mis-steps, which are often more interesting and informative. Plouffe also does a good job of painting a portrait of our current president as a real person, although Game Change does provide a few extra Obama foibles that Plouffe politely leaves out. Ultimately, I found this book a great read for anyone who needs to change minds and win over constituents. The Obama campaign of 2008 has become a blueprint for future political endeavors in the areas of marketing, fundraising and touching the hearts of Americans. Well done.

    Story

    Yes, I agree with everything in this book. Those who are hooked on the idea of austerity and tax cuts will find it annoying and will search their hearts for ways to deny its ideas. Conformation bias is working overtime these days on both sides of the political spectrum.

    It's human nature to choose winners and losers and to cheer for the winners. This is what it has come down to in our society. Unfortunately, this rather short-sighted way of approaching our world means that the winners walk away with most of the wealth.

    This book is dense in places and I really need to re-rlisten when my head is not spinning with Obama vs. Romney rhetoric. Which I will do soon. But until then, suffice it to say, the ideas Stiglitz puts forth for making government an agent of economic growth are spot on, but incredibly hard to implement in this political climate. I think we need another mutual enemy now that the cold war is over and Bin Laden is dead. All we have to fight against is ourselves at the moment. And it sickens me.

    The Price of Inequality: How Today's Divided Society Endangers Our Future

    The top 1 percent of Americans control 40 percent of the nation's wealth. And, as Joseph E. Stiglitz explains, while those at the top enjoy the best health care, education, and benefits of wealth, they fail to realize that "their fate is bound up with how the other 99 percent live." Stiglitz draws on his deep understanding of economics to show that growing inequality is not inevitable. He examines our current state, then teases out its implications for democracy, for monetary and budgetary policy, and for globalization. He closes with a plan for a more just and prosperous future.

Susie's greatest hits:
  • Making the Future: Occupations, Interventions, Empire and Resistance

    "Fifty-Two Reasons to Listen to Chomsky"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Grasping the data, and using uncompromising logic, Chomsky offers a counter-narrative to the rah-rah mock distress of mainstream reportage on U.S. foreign policy--"We had no choice but to go in there, we have to support these dictators to spread freedom."

    Afghanistan, Israel, global melting, the recession-- you'll recognize every current headline as well as less-talked-about conflicts in Somalia, and Georgia.

    One of the reasons Chomsky's writing is so meaningful to his readers is that he never fails to relish the alternative. He has his eyes set on those who are trying— and winning— their battle against corporate hegemony. He groks the daily triumphs and insights, not the ceremonies and awards.

    If you FEEL the dissonance between what you hear in the news vs. what you see in front of you— start here to find out why.

  • Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan: Eyewitness Accounts of the Occupations

    "Iraq & Afghanistan Vets Tell It Like It Is"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    You will NEVER hear these stories on the front page of the family newspaper— they're certainly not on the broadcast TV news.

    These important, often tragic stories from the front tell not only of the war crimes and tresspasses in the combat zones, but of the institutionalized military culture that changes every outcome, often at great personal expense.

    In matter-of-fact, un-sensationalized voices, we get the view from the Front and from within.

    The studio team at Audible did a terrific job casting this audiobook— it comes alive with multiple voices that sound like the amazing diversity of the book: every region of America, every race and class, men and women, young and old.

  • Interventions

    Overall

    Story

    Interventions is a series of 30+ tightly-argued essays aimed at US power and politics in the post-9/11 world. Interventions is designed to raise lucid awareness about the consequences of U.S. power moves at home and abroad— from Social Security and "Intelligent Design," to the Israeli occupation of Palestine, and South America, and Asia. Yeah, pretty busy.

    The U.S. concept of a "just war" just got blown up.

  • Damned Lies and Statistics: Untangling Numbers from the Media, Politicians, and Activists

    "How Stats Can Be Manipulated to Prove Anything"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is one of those books everyone should read—but would anyone ever get elected again? Author Joel Best shows you exactly how stats can be manipulated to prove anything.

    If every statistic released were to be believed, then the whole country would be sick, pregnant, violent, dead, or addicted to porn. Using examples from the New York Times, the Washington Post, U.S. Census, and other major media outlets, Best unravels the many fascinating examples of the misuse and abuse of statistical information.

    There are no innocents.

    My stats professor used to quote Mark Twain to every class: “There are lies, damned lies, and statistics.” It's possible to twist statistics to say virtually anything; for every study out there that makes one claim, there's another that "proves" the exact opposite. How can you know which one is true? Best lets you know how to spot the BS and wade through fraud studies and stats.

  • "Can't understand the low ratings!"

    18 of 19 helpful votes

    I am not a writer of reviews, but I could not let the low ratings for this book stand unopposed! In "The Unwinding," George Packer follows the lives of a variety of people, as a way to clarify wildly opposing viewpoints about what has happened in American society this last century. Here is history told as vividly as the best fiction, and it won my sympathy for people I would be unlikely to meet. A few high-profile people (like Oprah) come into the narrative. But some of the most revealing chapters cover U.S. citizens who seek meaning and success, work hard, "do everything right," and rarely make the headlines. I would recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone, with any political belief, who is trying to make sense of what it means to live in the U.S.A.!

    In The Unwinding, George Packer, author of The Assassins’ Gate: America in Iraq, tells the story of the United States over the past three decades in an utterly original way, with his characteristically sharp eye for detail and gift for weaving together complex narratives. The Unwinding portrays a superpower in danger of coming apart at the seams, its elites no longer elite, its institutions no longer working, its ordinary people left to improvise their own schemes for success and salvation.

Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a "loud and jangly" political debate about how, when, and where to apply America's strength and power - and who gets to make those decisions.

    John Locke's theory of toleration is generally seen as advocating the privatization of religion. This interpretation has become conventional wisdom: secularization is widely understood as entailing the privatization of religion, and the separation of religion from power. This audiobook turns that conventional wisdom on its head and argues that Locke secularizes religion, that is, makes it worldly, public, and political. In the name of diverse citizenship, Locke reconstructs religion as persuasion, speech, and fashion.

    The secret to good government is a question no one in Washington is asking: “What’s the right thing to do?” What’s wrong in Washington is deeper than you think. Sure, there’s gridlock, polarization, and self-dealing. But hidden underneath is something bigger and more destructive. It’s a broken governing system. From that comes wasteful government, rising debt, failing schools, expensive health care, and economic hardship.
