If your a tea bagger or love listening to Glenn Beck than this is not the book for you. But if you want to learn how the Obama Administration functions and what Obama's leadership style is like you will find this book endlessly fascinating. By far the best book out there on the Obama Presidency.
This speech quite literally changed my life when I heard it three years ago. I think it is the best articulation of mindfulness I have ever come across. I listened to this speech at a time in my life I was going through some difficult health problems and it really helped me a lot. I would recommend it to anyone.
This book is written so that you don't have to have a Ph.D or be a grad student to understand it but is very informative and well researched, it is quite a little gem. I have yet to fine a book on sociopaths or psychopaths that really allows you to understand not only their actions but what and how they think that allows them to do such ruthless and heartless things. This is book you could read for an advanced psychology coarse.
I am sure Glenn Beck is calling this "a hit piece" or "a smear job" but most of this book is simply using Beck's own words and past statements which suffeciently does the job of outlining how he uses fear and fringe conspiracy theories nightly on his Fox News show. I am not a fan of Beck but think he is a fascinating character and this book really does a great job of showing just how far out and crazy this guy has become.
Churchill once said "History is written by the victors". Well Howard Zinn turns this on it's head by writing from the perspective of the oppressed not the "victors". He is upfront about his bias since all accounts of history have one, he has just chosen to be biased toward the oppressed and the abused not the "victors". Anyone who reads and enjoys history will enjoy this book even if you differ from his perspective it is still a remarkable chronicle of American History.
My favorite book on the financial crisis of 07-08. Lewis paints an excellent picture of the big financial players and their losses and how a few people saw this collapse coming and made millions.
This is a great listen and gives you a first hand account of the people (EHM's) who work to expand the American Empire. If you are naive and think that America only does the good and nobel than you will hate this book but if you have a worldly and open mind you will find this book well worth your time.
