    Like a nonfiction version of All the King's Men, The Politician offers a truly disturbing, even shocking, perspective on the risks taken and tactics employed by a man determined to rule the most powerful nation on earth.

    MICHELLE says: "A real eye opener!"
    "Politician Phony. A must listen!!!"
    Overall

    I was skeptical at first but after listening to this audio book it made me realize how easy it is to fool us. The continual weakness of our political candidates we have running for President seeking Money, Power and Prestige. This also exposes the Trial Lawyers and how they can influence the process with secret money. Additionally it reveals outside money from the wealthy that is hidden and influences our election process.

  • Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President

    Story
    (206)

    The hidden history of Wall Street and the White House comes down to a single American concept: confidence. Both centers of power, New York and Washington, learned how to manufacture it - until August 2007, when that confidence began to crumble. Ron Suskind here tells the story of what happened next, as Wall Street struggled to save itself while a man with little experience and soaring rhetoric emerged from obscurity to usher in "a new era of responsibility".

    Would you listen to Confidence Men again? Why?

    I would listen to this again. It reveals the weakness of our leaders.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    You learn that you can't trust the Cabinet members. That Wall Street has infiltrated the Executive Branch of our government.


    Have you listened to any of James Lurie???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Lurie does an excellent naration.
