    Our Divided Political Heart will be the must-listen book of the 2012 election campaign. Offering an incisive analysis of how hyper-individualism is poisoning the nation's political atmosphere, E. J. Dionne Jr., argues that Americans can't agree on who we are because we can't agree on who we've been, or what it is, philosophically and spiritually, that makes us Americans.

    Jamie Britton Blanck says: "Good points and lots of good information"
    "A subject this dry could not have been done better"

    Story

    As much as I love to expand my brain by listening to books like this, I find most of them so boring I can't seem to focus long enough to learn anything. This book however did a great job at keeping things interesting enough to keep my focus, but without getting into a level of sensationalism that has destroyed cable news journalism over the past decade.

    I also love how the author points out how both sides have helped cause harm to the political discord in this country. He doesn't stop at just throwing around accusations. There are real solutions here as well. This book is strongly recommended. I'm sure I will listen to it again when I am mentally ready for something this heavy. It seems like the kind of thing that could be listened to many times over and over again with each time the reader picking up new info missed every time before.

    Highly recommended, but be ready to grab something light after.
