How would I know? The audio edition is moving and insightful, but I haven't read the print version.
Understanding how citizen outrage at profligate government/corporate corruption morphed into the Tea Party reality-rejecting echo chamber. It's a remarkable story of money and manipulation. You certainly can fool some of the people all of the time.
The CEO of Massey Energy (multi-millionare beneficiary of lax safety practices that killed dozens of miners) rallying a crowd of middle class idiots with anti-government rhetoric.
Self-reinforcing nature of faith and politics, not blatant stupidity, precludes people from questioning the beliefs that lead to this mass crazy. Joe the Plumber really believes he's better off under Bush/McCain no matter the evidence to the contrary.
Both entertaining and thoroughly depressing to think that so many American voters lack the critical reasoning skills see through the mendacity of the monied leaders of this Astroturf movement. Our public education system has failed us.
Must reading for anyone interested in foreign or domestic policy. Simply put, those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. Maddow captures the broad trend in American military policy with amazing clarity.
The top brass in the military are talking about this book and the themes Maddow focuses on. If civilian political leadership gets the message, it could have a profound positive impact on our national trajectory.
Her delivery is professional and compelling.
Her coverage of the Iran Contra affair, focusing on the policy implications rather than the Fawn Hall/Olllie North personality sideshow that the congressional hearings are remembered for, was amazing.
Should be required reading for every high school senior in America.
The Jane Whitefield character is heroic and wonderfully drawn.
The action's fast paced and clever, as always in a Perry novel. But the bad guys are cartoonish, even by the standards of the genre.
Joyce did a fantastic job of covering the many characters and accents, with warmth and consistency. It was a pleasure listening to her.
More sequels than Rocky!
Sadly, it''s probably time to retire Jane.
Penn pulls no punches in this string of stories. At times laugh-out-loud funny and always challenging, God, No! is perfectly consistent with Penn's larger-than-Vegas persona.
Howard Stern meets Richard Dawkins, with a dash of Sam Bush.
Spoiler alert - Penn hosting a pool party with a naked Extreme Elvis on his shoulders.
Not many books made me stop and laugh out loud, but this one did.
If you''re easily offended by casual sex or blasphemy, this is a MUST READ.
