A refreshing, smartly comedic commentary on daring to take a realistic look at inherited belief systems. Two thumbs way up!
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!
Rachel is a fabulous narrator. Very easy to listen to.
