    An explosive, behind-the-scenes look into the workings of the U.S. war in Afghanistan that lifts the curtain of the world stage to reveal the devastating greed, waste, and failure surrounding this unwinnable war.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It was clear to me 15 mins into this book, the author hates the military.It's Rumsfelds' fault, it's Bushs' fault, it's John McCains' fault. The authors description of General McCystals' uniform and awards and comindations.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Hastings again?

    no


    How could the performance have been better?

    Performance was fine, material was bad.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yea, never to buy another Micheal Hastings book again.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a waste or time and money.

    Why the American Revolution, of all the great revolutions, was the only enduring success. Through the Founders' own voices - and in the homes they designed and built to embody the ideal of domestic happiness they fought to achieve - we come to understand why the American Revolution, of all great revolutions, was the only enduring success. The Founders were vivid, energetic men, with sophisticated worldviews, and this magnificent reckoning of their successes draws liberally from their own eloquent writings on their actions and well-considered intentions.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would only recommend if reader was short on history of this era.


    What was most disappointing about Myron Magnet’s story?

    Delivery


    How could the performance have been better?

    Mr. Magnet should have let someone else narrate.


    Did The Founders at Home inspire you to do anything?

    No
