    President Bill Clinton gives us his views on the challenges facing the United States today and why government matters—presenting his ideas on restoring economic growth, energy, job creation, financial responsibility, resolving the mortgage crisis, and financial responsibility, and offering a plan to get us "back in the future business".

    Christine A. Haimann says: "Great and it all makes sense"
    "Clear headed view of the situation"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Progressive or conservative, this is a must read for anybody who is concerned about the economy and frustrated with the grid lock in DC. Clinton has incisive insight into the workings of the economy and the politics of the time. He offers real insights into the what solutions are available or even underway by hampered by the government, at both the national and state levels. It is not a diatribe and does not take political sides. Where he differs from the parties, he explains his position, so there can be no accusation that this is anything but a very practical approach to getting people back to work. Not a book on economics, but a real revelation about economics.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book is laid out in a sequence, but you could hardly call it a plot. He builds his case methodically, however. It is in no way text-book like.


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

    Whether you liked him as a political figure or not, I've always like listening to Bill Clinton. HIs delivery clarifies the intent of his words. Is is varied and even has emotional content. He chuckles at himself or waxes impatient at times. I was concerned that a litany of economic programs might be hard to follow when read aloud, but Clinton's narration made it easy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    While I did not listen to this in a single sitting, and I wouldn't recommend it, it was an easy listen. There is a lot here and I like to let it sing in in large bites. Unlike some books on this subject, it was easy to pick up where you left off.


    Any additional comments?

    If there is anything that would dampen you enjoyment, it would be breaking up the last hour of the book into too many sessions. It is a series of recommendations about economic programs that seems compact and coherent only if you hear them all in the same breath, as it were.
