    In an era of ballooning corporate campaign expenditures, unleashed by the Supreme Court in Citizens United, trust in our government is at an all time low. More than ever before, Americans believe that money buys results in Congress - and that our Republic has been lost.Using examples that resonate as powerfully on the Right as on the Left, Republic, Lost not only makes clear how the economy of influence defeats the will of the people, but offers cogent strategies to correct our course....

    Would you listen to Republic, Lost again? Why?

    Maybe. I got the jist of it and would go back to some sections I noted, but not the whole book over again. It gets pretty dry in parts towards the end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No characters - only problems and possible solutions.


    Have you listened to any of Lawrence Lessig’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First listen.


    If you could give Republic, Lost a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Ordinary people doing the wrong things for the wrong reasons in DC

    How to take control of teams and projects even when you're not the boss.... Project leaders these days supervise few if any of the people that they rely upon for project success. Getting projects off to a good start and then maintaining control of them is an enormous challenge for a project leader who has little or no formal authority.But there are many proven, powerful techniques a strong project leader can employ to keep projects and teams on track.

    G says: "A very good primer on project management"
    "Too dry for audio book"

    What did you like best about Results Without Authority? What did you like least?

    Needed to read it for class and this just didn't work as well as I hoped.


    Would you recommend Results Without Authority to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not on audio book.


    Did Sam Mullins do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    There are no characters so it is not good for audio book.


    Do you think Results Without Authority needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Probably not. Covered most of the needs in 1 sitting.
