    Here is a visionary analysis of how the politics of fear, secrecy, cronyism, and blind faith have combined with the public sphere's degradation to create an environment dangerously hostile to reason. Never has there been a worse time for us to lose the capacity to face the reality of our long-term challenges, from national security to the economy, from issues of health and social welfare to the environment. As The Assault on Reason explains, we have precious little time to waste.

    Overall

    Al Gore has done a remarkable job at helping me to understand in laymans terms just how awful this administration is and has been since its inception. The American people trusted this man because of what they thought he was, not what he truly was. It angers me so much that here we are almost 8 years since the Lewinsky debaucle and it seems so petty compared to the disaster this country has truly become not only to its own people but to those who live outside this country. We have to get back to the way it was. But without a leader whose interest is truly the American people as Clinton and Gore were, even HW Bush was a better man, we will never recover. In this book Gore gives us hope, but the American people have towake up and smell the coffee. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to those who always believed that Gore would have made a much better President and even those who thought he wouldn't, intelligent he is not egotistical.

    Best-selling author Vincent Bugliosi has written the most important and thought-provoking book of his prolific career. In a meticulously researched and clearly presented legal case that puts George W. Bush on trial for murder after he leaves his presidency, Bugliosi delivers a searing indictment of the president and his administration.

    Overall

    I found this book to be so great, with the things that are going on today , this book is so relevant on so many levels. There were parts though that I felt really sad.

    The fictionalized account of Louisiana's colorful and notorious governor, Huey Pierce Long, All the King's Men follows the startling rise and fall of Willie Stark, a country lawyer in the Deep South of the 1930s. Beset by political enemies, Stark seeks aid from his right-hand man Jack Burden, who will bear witness to the cataclysmic unfolding of this very American tragedy.

    Eric Berger says: "Marvelously written and read"
    "Not what I expected"
    Overall

    I started listening to this book and switched to another because of the continuous use of the word nigger, I just don't feel that was necessary even with the era. It is a great disappointment to me but for those who don't mind listening to the continuous expletives more power to you. I would advise those of Christian and moral values, you could not possibly get through this book.
