Yes. E.J. Dione presents a reasoned and knowledgeable analysis of the American Political scene that makes great sense in light of the wide-ranging grasp he presents of the forces contributing to the current divide. Unfortunately, after hearing the author often on televised interviews, I found Michael Kramer's narration disappointing, often monotonous, and frequently unable to keep me from falling asleep while listening. Perhaps the author's schedule prevented him from narrating his own work, but the narrator failed to share the author's passion for his work .
Likely F.D.R., as I gained new appreciation for his political skills from this listen.
I usually select more serious stuff, and it did take a while to get into this listen, which got off to a confusing and slow start. Despite the reader's skills being highly praised, his soft but deep voice could not be heard while driving my Outback on smooth roads even at full volume from my Creative Zen's FM modulator through the car stereo. Nevertheless, by the end, I was into this one, and the characters came alive!
