As much as I like Matt Damon, I really didn't like him reading this book. It sounds like he's falling asleep reading a long list of atrocities. The book gets much better when the author takes over about half way through. The message is pretty dark, that this country is on evil auto-pilot, and that it takes huge movements of people to change its course. My feeling is that we'll only change when someone takes away our TV's and french fries.
Based on its popularity and high reviews, I expected alot from this book. I was disappointed in that it was dully read, and the material was repetitive. There's a lot of space filled by lists, and I learned less than I hoped.
