    "Talking Out of His Rear"

    I'm not too keen on Don Holbrook's ideas in "The Next America." Some of his ideas are great, like regarding education, but most of his ideas are so far fetch that they will never come true. You can't rebuild America base on theories. There has to be action, reaction, and leadership and Don Holbrook is just talking out of his rear without any examples.

    I almost couldn't finish this one. At one point, I had to stop and listen to something else because Brian Daniel Young speaks in waves. He is the worst reader that I have yet to listen to. Avoid his voice as much as possible. His vocal folds is poison.

    Story
    "Boring political statements masked as wisdom"
    Would you try another book from Don Holbrook and/or Brian Daniel Young?

    Not likely.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Leave out the political and religious assertions as to cause and effect.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brian Daniel Young?

    The narrator seem OK, but the way it was narrated came across as "computer-like" vs human.

    "Religous"
    Would you try another book from Don Holbrook and/or Brian Daniel Young?

    No


    Has The Next America turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brian Daniel Young?

    Yeah


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a lot more about religion, politics and philosophy then the title would imply. Almost 2 hours in I hardly heard anything specific about the American economy. I would recommend this book if your a Christian Libertarian looking to reenforce your world view or I suppose if your an Atheist Socialist looking to see what the other side is preaching.

    While I didn't hate the book, I didn't like the narrator very much. I turned the thing off when he started talking about how America was established by the founding fathers as a Christian nation and would forever remain one. That bummed me out when I considered that it was also founded as a racist nation and the thought crossed my mind that maybe this guy didn't believe in progress.
