Haven't heard the audio but did read the book so this is a review of content not production values.
Every indignant complaint Mr. York levels at librals, while often accurate, is simply documenting thier late catch up for what the conservatives have been doing for years, which is why they are in total control. Virtually every major point has a coresponding ongoing, equally reprehensible, activity by conservatives. The question then becomes why bother with this or the soon to arrive FrankenMoorestein "back atcha." book. Yes, both sides are using every trick of marketing and image spin possible to get and keep power without much regard to accuracy or concern for the majority. We get it.
If you already know that you agree with York, or Coulter, or Franken, or Moore buy the books, and then please take the fight to the next room. Start with the PeeWee Herman tribute quote above, and move on to .... whatever. Just keep it away from the adult table please.
For the rest of us that would like to see America return to a more reasonable level of political noise, books like this are not useful. It really is time for moderate Americans to stop supporting this type of sceed whether left of right.
I bought the audio copy, then the book so I could loan it around. The problem is that it is truely painful to sit and listen to example after example of how damaging the present administration is to the average citizen. I could handle one or two chapters at a time, and then have to switch to another book to take a breather. But then I would come back and listen to the same chapter over to be sure I heard what I thought I had. While Evins and (co-author) Lou Dubose write with humor, it's a differnt brand of humor than the "in your face" humor of Franken, or the anger of Moore. This presents the same message as those, but in a style that you will feel comfortable sharing with your moderate aunt in Kansas , and have some hope that the information will be communicated, and not be ignored due to "style". The Book is not Painful, as much as the reality of what it presents is, but it is very important information however painful. A key fact ot help people in picking this book over, say "Treason" is that this book present it's sources in a way that can be cross checked, and verified. This is not a propaganda hack job, it's a call to Americans to stop and consider if Bush Corporation is really serving the people he is sworn to serve. Listen or read for yourself, then decide.
Another attempt to ignor the reality that the media is controlled not by the reporters, but by the owners. And they are not liberal and not inclined to allow a liberal bias in today's newsrooms.
