    "Informative and easy to listen too."
    Overall

    The interviews and speeches are informative. It s also factual and the explanations of the issues are easy to follow. The opinions are generally down the middle politically.

    The world will never see another peace conference like the one which took place in Paris in 1919. For six months, the world's major leaders - including Woodrow Wilson, president of the United States, David Lloyd George, prime minister of Great Britain, and Georges Clemenceau, prime minister of France - met to discuss the peace settlements which were to end World War One.

    Jon says: "Best Audible Title Yet"
    "Interesting information and easy to listen to."
    Overall

    I felt like she apologized for Wilson but seemed to cover both sides of the aurguments. If you are interested in world history or the beginnings of the Progressive movement this is a great read.

    Story

    It's difficult today to imagine how America survived the Great Depression. Only through the stories of the common people who struggled during that era can we really understand how the nation endured. In The Forgotten Man, Amity Shlaes offers a striking reinterpretation of the Great Depression. Rejecting the old emphasis on the New Deal, she turns to the neglected and moving stories of individual Americans, and shows how they helped establish the steadfast character we developed as a nation.

    Ray says: "One of the Best Books On the Subject"
    "Informative Read"
    Overall

    There were details about this time in history that you do not normally get to hear about. Easy to listen to and informative.

    The Supreme Court endorses terrorists' rights, flag burning, and importing foreign law. Is that in the Constitution? You're right: it's not. But these days the Constitution is no restraint on our out-of-control Supreme Court. The Court imperiously strikes down laws and imposes new ones purely on its own arbitrary whims. Even though liberals like John Kerry are repeatedly defeated at the polls, the majority on the allegedly "conservative" Supreme Court reflects their views and wields absolute power.

    James says: "A concise account of an originalist viewpoint"
    "The way the courts should be"
    Overall

    This book is dead on when it comes to the way our courts should be. If you believe that elected officials instead of activist judges should write laws, give this book a listen. This book is a large dose of facts and small dose of opinion. I will have to pick up the hard cover for reference material.
