    Rachel Maddow's Drift argues that we've drifted away from America's original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails. Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a "loud and jangly" political debate about how, when, and where to apply America's strength and power - and who gets to make those decisions.

    Dolf says: "Half the National Debt?"
    "Every American should listen to this book."

    Story
    Would you listen to Drift again? Why?

    Yes. It underscores a problem that few in our political class will even recognize, much less address with any courage. The most important factor of Maddow's thesis is that the problem can be fixed--we have the means, we just need the political will. It is a stark, deliberate accusation that lands on both sides of the aisle of Congress.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Colin Powell.


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

    This long form suits Rachel Maddow's prose as well as the short form of her television and radio shows.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    There are so many, it's hard to choose. The most important piece is that in the past we have attempted with some success to guard against the unmoored


    Any additional comments?

    Every American who cares about the men and women of our military, the position of our country in the world, and foreign policy in general should read this book.
