    Story
    (199)

    Based on 18 months of reporting, Woodward's 17th book The Price of Politics is an intimate, documented examination of how President Obama and the highest profile Republican and Democratic leaders in the United States Congress attempted to restore the American economy and improve the federal government's fiscal condition over three and one half years. The Price of Politics addresses the key issue of the presidential and congressional campaigns: the condition of the American economy.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Price of Politics?

    Just wasn't a compelling story. Back and forth bickering leading back to square one, then a few steps forward. Nothing intriguing about this at all.


    What does Boyd Gaines bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Boyd Gaines is an EXCELLENT voice.

    Story

    George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police - a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote. Winston Smith, a hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him.

    A great story and a must read (or listen). A true classic. Simon Prebble once again delivers a knockout performance!
