    Rachel Maddow's Drift argues that we've drifted away from America's original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails. Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a "loud and jangly" political debate about how, when, and where to apply America's strength and power - and who gets to make those decisions.

    Would you listen to Drift again? Why?

    Yes! Rachel told an easy to understand story of the sequence of events that lead to the creation of the war machine.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    How the rich have turned war into a business for all of Cheney's friends and business partners. They pretty much replaced our military with Black water rent-a-troop for billions of dollars and they provided nothing in return.


    What about Rachel Maddow’s performance did you like?

    She just put all the pieces together that show a picture that I have not seen before.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No. I really enjoyed the whole book!

    In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he’s only 13 years old, Theo Boone thinks he’s one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk—and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom. But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than expected. Because he knows so much—maybe too much—he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial.

    Doesn't compare.
