turns out it was a long winded book about various forms of government. wanted to hear about our form, warnings about what's to come, and steps to change it. 2/3 of the book was about forms of government i didn't care about. audible's download doesn't copy to flash drive or phone. could only listen on computer, not portable at all. the book itself had only about 3 chapters that held my interest: introduction, declaration of independence, and warnings for not changing.
introduction by Mark, and the birth of the declaration , i think, chapter 3.
no. some 5 hours of not much, 2 hours scattered of what i wanted it for.
wish i could have downloaded to a flash drive or other portable device so i could have listen ed on my home stereo.
This is a really good book if you are looking for history. It is not a book for pleasure, at all. If the book really is about the unmaking of America he needs to get to it quicker or more directly. And we surely do have a mess here, but it takes alot of effort to understand.
It is a very monotone read. I usually like to listen to a book read by the arthor, and this one was, but no passion in this book.
It's not a stright through read. I'm still not finished.
It would be a good college course. That is if there were any feeling in the reading.
Mark's passion for Liberty
The neat tying of the historical giants of Statism to today's leaders who hide behind
Yes, but I kept nodding off.
This book takes tremendous effort to get through, but its message is important -stick with it!
It was like listening to someone reading a history book. The book in my opinion is totally irrelevant to todays environment. The author lives in a world 2 to 3 hundred years ago.
I have bought all of his books in the past. I listen to all his radio shows.
I lost interest in the first 90 minutes
Didn't matter the material was boring
He would probably tell me to get off the damned phone.
No - it really was not up to Levin's normal level of excellence. The data was factual (and frightening) but too dry.
Mark Levin has made his book extremely informative while making it a breeze to listen to. Levin takes his readers (listeners for the audio book crowd) through an informative journey of what the trouble(s) with trying to build a Utopian society is. Levin also shows how by living constitutionally through the founding fathers example we can restore America to the great society earlier generations enjoyed and so that future and current generations may benefit and prosper as well.
It is really nice to hear Mark read the three chapters he does, the other narrator is a bit dry but it does not detract from the book in any way.
That Mark Levin actually read three chapters...
I don't have one. The whole book, to me, was great enough that no one moments stood out to me as better than another.
Oh yes. When Mark goes into the greatness of America and how it is being and has been destroyed by the left for many years.
I know many Obama supporters and Ron Paul supporters are either not literate or are too high to read this and understand it... but for the rest of you, good and hardworking Americans who love their country... you will love this book. It is inspirational, factual and exposes these detestable leftists for who they are and asks the question
Some audiobooks are hard to put down, and I zoom through them in no time. However, this one is meant to be listened to slowly as there are many thought provoking concepts presented. Should Americans allow their government so much control as to let those in charge strive for some form of American Utopia ? Or are free market principles and small central government the path we should take? Levin guides us through Plato, Thomas More, Hobbes, and Karl Marx and contrasts their ideals with the Locke, Montesquieu and de Tocqueville in an effort to make us all understand what we have and what could happen to what we have if we don't pay attention. A very enlightening read for all, one which I plan to pass along to my family and friends. A better reading gift could not be given.
Extreme position presented in a boring manner with no support for the ideas presented. Simple ideas made to sound complicated with no new insight.
