it isn't the turth a all. A crazy paranoid reality of a demented person.
Her voice made it hard to follow.
The whole thing. It is filled with lies. Start over with the truth.
I want my money back. Never again. Wanted to see what the fus was about. I am terribly disappointed. Don't make the same mistake as me. If 2 plus 2 is 4 in your reality. Then this book is not for you.
The best book I ever listened to. To hear it from the author just sends it over the top.
The detailing of the Abrams doctrine was eye opening!
Rules, what rules. Presidents don't need them.
thought provoking, interesting
Learning of things I didn't know.
Made me think and want to research more about some of the topics.
Good review of the topics. Gives insight to things possibly unknown or thought about. It is one perspective.
Ms. Maddow does an admirable job narrating her book, but you can tell she's not a professional at this particular art. Didn't interfere with the book, however.
There's a lot of interesting information, and a lot of conclusions drawn. I've not found any of the information to be false - and some I checked on immediately, as I wasn't aware of it.
While I agree with many of her conclusions, they're often not inescapable or inarguable, so be careful in building your own views. If, however, like me, you're an informed liberal, you'll find much of her work here interesting and compelling. She's not going to convert many people with this, though; it's mostly by a liberal for liberals - but, of course, reality has a well known liberal bias... :D
Love that Rachel does her own narrative.. Great history of the US military.
First military history I've read.
The squarndering of American might.
Drift is the kind of book you could listen to every couple of years to remind you of some of the things in history that are important, relevant to what is happening now and what we should have learned as lessons.
Rachel was great. We felt like she was sitting in our living room telling us this information.
This is a great book for any committed leftist that as no knowledge of or regard for history. Biased view that is the flip side of the right wing garbage from Limbaugh/Hannity. If you are seeking good insight into the mistakes made over the past decade, this isnt the place to find it.
Listening to this audio book was like having Rachel Maddow carpool to work with me. She does her homework, and obviously cares deeply about the subject. A fascinating (although disturbing) listen! As soon as I finished it the first time, I listened to it again. No other reader could have done justice to her style.
Interesting Engrossing Scary
It was a subject that hasn't been spoken about in somtime
She could slow down on the narration a bit, and check her facts about the terminology that was used.
A true tail of wagging the dog, or how America’s Military was defeated, and taken over by the private sector with nary a drop of blood spilled!
It has to be. I haven't read Drift, but there is no replacement for hearing Rachel Maddow deliver her words.
Rachel Maddow was able to make the listen dynamic by changing her tone. She seemed to be really loose when recording so it made it fun to hear her giggle at the parts that are intended to be funny.
It probably would have been an interesting read, but Rachel Maddow's narrative cannot be replaced. If anyone has ever seen her show, they must have the same disappointment I have when there is a fill-in. Same goes with this book.
America's gradual acceptance of dependence on war.
