    David Horowitz was one of the founders of the New Left and an editor of Ramparts, the magazine that set the intellectual and revolutionary tone for the movement. From his vantage point at the center of the action, he provides vivid portraits of people who made the radical decade.

    William says: "A story that shouldn't be missed!"
    "Excellent political autobiography."

    Story

    It is more than a political autobiography, but the political aspects are the most interesting. Horowitz provides outstanding insights into the left. His transformation story is by far the most interesting portion. The narrator is average. He adds nothing, but also doesn't distract the reader.

  • A History of the American People

    Story
    (117)

    Johnson's monumental history of the United States, from the first settlers to the Clinton administration, covers every aspect of American culture: politics, business, art, literature, science, society and customs, complex traditions, and religious beliefs. The story is told in terms of the men and women who shaped and led the nation and the ordinary people who collectively created its unique character.

    Mike From Mesa says: "A British conservative's view of American history."
    "The Text is Outstanding, Narration is Average"
    Overall

    This is a very readable book, however it is a book that I found easier to read, than listen to. The narration is often too quick for the listener to absorb what is taking, and keep up with Johnson's transitions from one topic to another. My recommendation is to buy the text, rather than the audio.
