This is quite revealing. I had to take a break from it several times-the information contained was overwhelming to listen too.
There were many things in government that provoke the imagination-but this puts it out there. It is revealing as it exposes the workings of the war machine of the Bush administration.
Found it fascinating. Long, but well organized. The author showed a picture of Steve Jobs which illustrated his personality and the depths of his dreams and business savvy. Enjoyed the listen.
I was in nursing school a little before the dates in the book. I attended City #2 Hospital in St. Louis, Mo. Homer G. Phillips. His account of Cook County Hospital is very accurate of the time. I saw many of the same things. Politics were the same all over the country, I could not get into the schools in Michigan where I lived. I am African American, we were not admitted to the schools there. After graduation I worked at the City Hospital in Detroit. Private hospitals did not accept minorities unless they could produce an insurance card. The rooms in the hospitals were then segregated.
He is right on target.Listening was a flash back for me.
This is a very moving novel in the first person. It is narrated quite well. It has been an eye opening experience. I have enjoyed every minute of it.
