    Story
    (443)

    Julia Sweeney says she was a "happy Catholic girl" when, one day, she walked into church and signed up for a Bible-study course. "What an eye opener that was!" she says. Equally comedic and insightful, Letting Go of God is Sweeney's brilliant one-woman show about her struggle with her faith.

    Mark says: "A Brilliant Personal Journey of Discovery"
    "Smart and Funny"
    Overall

    A refreshing, smartly comedic commentary on daring to take a realistic look at inherited belief systems. Two thumbs way up!

    Story

    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?

    I am a real fan of Rachel Maddow, so I know her politics as much as an avid viewer, at relative arms length can. As such, I thought I knew what I could expect; but, I was wrong. It was not Liberal commentary, but was an enlightening examination of some of the most compelling events, in the public eye and behind the scenes, of American war history. This book was a fresh peek into the reality that is the politics, pitfalls, purposes, successes, failures, and economics of the use of the ultimate in American power.

    Once I began listening to it, I simply couldn't "put it down", alas on my 45 min commute to and from work. As America struggles to come to terms with itself, and tries to feel comfortable in its own proverbial skin, it's helpful to have this sort of smart, analytical expose' to draw our attention to where we [may] have been.

    Bunches of thumbs up (if I had more than two) :) Good Job Rachel!
