    "Highly Recommended"

    It was refreshing to hear about the Founding Fathers through a lens that is traditional as opposed to the 'pc' versions of modern academia.

    Straightforward and to-the-point with highlights that illuminate the main attributes of each of the men.

    I had planned on a review of the main characters. It was a bonus to have the forgotten/unknown characters also reviewed.

    I have listened two books by Joseph Ellis. They left me with little appreciation for the gifts that Americans should enjoy as a result of the sacrifices of that generation. Quite the opposite with the treatment that McClanahan provides.

    Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Politically Incorrect/founding fathers."
    Would you listen to The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers again? Why?

    Yes I would listen to it again. If for no other reason just to "rehash" all the information contained.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the mix of professional/personal lives in it and I also enjoyed the vast number of historical facts I didn't learn in school.


    What about Tom Weiner’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed his voice and inflections, very easy to listen to.

    "Refreshing perspective"

    Well done and well presented. I could have done without some of the backhanded sarcasm that closes several of the sections but, notwithstanding such editorial commentary, this is a fine selection for those interested in some of US history's lesser known names of greater influence than one might have imagined. It is always important to view their actions and writings in the context of what was "normal" in their day and time. This work does a fine job of bring that contextual focus to the narration. Enjoyable and recommended.
