  • It's Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided with the New Politics of Extremism

    Story

    Congressional scholars Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein identify two overriding problems that have led Congress—and the United States—to the brink of institutional collapse. But they offer a panoply of useful ideas and reforms, endorsing some solutions, like greater public participation and institutional restructuring, while debunking others, like independent or third-party candidates. Above all, they call on the media as well as the public to focus on the true causes of dysfunction rather than just throwing the bums out every election cycle.

    Where does It's Even Worse Than It Looks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among political nonfiction it is one of the best.


    Has It's Even Worse Than It Looks turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all. It has actually made me want to learn more.


    What about William Hughes’s performance did you like?

    Just about everything. I have heard him read other books and he is one of the best!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    There was a lot to process, so I found it helpful to break it up in order to think about what I'd been hearing.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed this very much and plan on a second listen.

    When a listless office employee (the narrator) meets Tyler Durden, his life begins to take on a strange new dimension. Together they form Fight Club - a secretive underground group sponsoring bloody bare-knuckle boxing matches staged in seedy alleys, vacant warehouses, and dive-bar basements. Fight Club lets ordinary men vent their suppressed rage, and it quickly develops a fanatical following.

    Ilana says: "The first rule about Fight Club is..."

    A mysterious incident in Russia, a blip buried in the news - it’s the only warning humanity receives that civilization will soon be destroyed by a single, voracious virus that creates monsters of men. A lawyer, still grieving over the death of his young wife, begins to write as a form of therapy. But he never expected that his anonymous blog and journal would ultimately record humanity’s last days. Governments scramble to stop the zombie virus, people panic, so-called Safe Havens are established, the world erupts into chaos; soon it’s every man, woman, and child for themselves.

    Keith says: "Just For Pleasure"
    "Great Zombie Story!"

    Would you listen to The Beginning of the End again? Why?

    Yes. I love zombie stories, especially Romero style.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Beginning of the End?

    When they were hiding in the closet waiting for the zombies to leave.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Podehl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely recommended for old school fans of slow, stupid, scary, gory zombies.
