My husband and I have seen Chris since he first started appearing on MSNBC. We have watched him grow as a TV personality. We lovingly call him 'junior."
As a talking head, Chris is OK, but we quickly saw where his talents lie. He is a wonderful moderator and has the most interesting discussions with his guests on his morning show, UP with Chris.
And the art of discussions is at the heart of what this book is about. The one thing that will make America a stronger country is open dialogue that gets to that heart of the issue and opens it up to many differet facets and points of view.
Chris does a great job of explaining why our current system is in the process of change and why this is inevable.
Sometimes I had listen to him on the slow speed to really digest what he was saying becasue he thinks as fast as he talks and it is a lot to take in at one time.
But he blew me away; I was so impressed with his book! I wish I could get more young people to read it because he has the antidote to apathy.
Yes, this is an accessible arguement about an important problem. Hayes, patiently but without condescention, gives his readers a coherent argument as to why meritocracy leads to an "entitled" elite that loses sight of its moral bearings.
Yes, I'm a liberal, so, I like him.
No, except I had to laugh at the stupid conservative Republicans.
One of the best books about what happened this last decade and how the elite have betrayed our confidence and set us adrift in an institutional black hole. The Church, Major-League baseball, the financial community and the political process are institutions that have failed us and left us looking for a new way to regain trust in anything in our lives. Chris carefully explains how our institutions have failed us and how we need to navigate in the world void of a trust in them.
Understanding Why !!
getting a better view and understanding of why things happen and how they are influenced will help get things changed for the better if you choose to do something about it :-)
One of the most informative, new thought, audiobooks I've listened to.
Hayes proves that the tea party and occupy wallstreet movement are one in the same.
"The teaparty wants to live back in the 50's and occupy wallstreeters want to work in the 50's." Love it.
Chris Hayes is a skilled speaker and writer. He is unfailingly intelligent, critical and honest. His book is absolutely worth a read or a listen and will educate and interest a wide range of audiences.
So many real life examples and data & sarcatic humor by Chris Hayes
Story bout Major league baseball gettin exposed wit steriod usage and how it plays into corruption among the elites
Every character Exposing Right Wing / Tea Party Leader
Toxic BS propaganda of the elites
Totally refreshing, Chris Hayes is a master of words. Never heard anyone explain and expose the Right wing elites so well, definately worth a read, you will not be dissappointed (1 of my all time favs)
One of the best. Inspirational, a call to action and answers the question "why are things so messed up right now"?
Emotional, read his own book so knew exactly what to emphasize.
Meritocracy isn't perfect.
I think everyone should read this book.
