You've been lied to by the government. We shrug off this fact as an unfortunate reality. America is the land of the free, after all. Does it really matter whether our politicians bend the truth here and there? When the truth is traded for lies, our freedoms are diminished and don’t return. In Lies the Government Told You, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano reveals how America’s freedom, as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, has been forfeited by a government more protective of its own power than its obligations to preserve our individual liberties.

The audio book title sets the hook of curiosity. As the hearer progresses from one topic to the next, thoughts like "WOW! what can be next?" spurs the intensity of desire to not stop but proceed to the next topic.
The sheer number of examples of lies perpetrated by the Government that the Judge documents is overwhelming. He covers a lot of material, and has done a masterful job organizing and concisely addressing each topic.
The Judge organized the narrative into 17 topics which greatly facilitated absorbing the range and depth of thoughts. He covers a tremendous amount of information and ideas.
The length of the performance is long, which was unavoidable given the subject matter. The Judge kept the narrative moving and interesting with voice inflections, etc.
The above headline is by no means a criticism of the book. If the trend toward big-Government continues, then the examples the Judge presents while appalling will be tame. This is a must-listen/read for everyone that seeks to be an better informed Citizen.
This is by far one of the best books i've listened to.
The Judge is the only character and he reads the book great. Very enthusiastic.
His enthusiasm really gets you into the story.
Everyone in America Should Read This.
I have always been a fan of Andrew Napolitano and look forward to his analysis of current events. Unfortunately, this was not a very good book. It is rare that I have to stop listening to a book before the end. In this case, the story lines were all over the place and not presented in a compelling or spellbinding manner. I would definitely listen to other books of Napolitano's because of my respect for him. This one was just too abstract.

This is one of the most interesting ones I have listened to, and the first political audio book I have done.
One of the most memorable parts of the book was finding out that the part about "Innocent until proven guilty" was illustrated with a case I had read a book about, and that the impression that book left me with was not the whole truth!
I liked his narrating, especially because his passion for the topic comes through. That might not be the same with another narrator.
It is amazing how much of what one is taught in American History classes misses, as I found out with this audio book. Things that I took for granted as "fact" turn out to not be true. If you have an interest in history and politics, this book will make you think!
Interesting read. I'm going to look into some of the historial items he lists as facts considering that they are not accepted as facts by most in this country. If they are facts then my mind has been blown a few times in this book. I really like Napolitano's takes though and that he's not afraid to trash either party.
Excellent eye opener!
Kept my attention the whole time i was listening.
Didnt want to turn it off!
Filled with eye opening details, makes you think, shocking, have to listen to it again!!
Why the average man should become a libertarian.
After listening to this book, as a conservative Republican......I will change my voter registration to Libertarian.
Member since 2003 90 Audio Books on line dozens more purchased on CD I mostly like historical fiction & newer counter terrorism & political
The Historical Overview.
Both Parties are Liars!
The author is not afraid to hit both Rep and Dems. Bush and Obama are laid bare and it is shocking.
I should have known this was going to be a bad one after listening to the introduction by Ron Paul. To say there are numerous flights into fantasy here would be an understatement.
One example alone is the 2000 presidential election. To hear Judge Napolitano tell it you would think the Supreme Court hijacked the Presidential election for their own gain. Those of us that were there, covering it day after day as it happened, know it was much more simple then that. The Supreme Court of the United States simply told the Florida Supreme court to obey their own law. They added an admonishment that the Florida court cannot simply make it up as they go along.
This one was a waste of money. I've heard the Judge give interviews on Fox News. It is not certain what happened to the judge that gave those interviews and thoughts when he composed this work.
Well I think I did notice the TITLE. The book is great for what it promises but it is too american and lots of legal refernces to my liking. If you are not american or really involved dont buy it. However I DID LISTEN TO IT.
To hard core americans who argue abt the perfect world YES. To everyone else maybe no.
War on terror.
Not really it is too disconnected.
Again good book if do not assume to be anything besides the title. A mistake that I did.
