Liberty and Tyranny is Mark R. Levin's clarion call to conservative America, a new manifesto for the conservative movement for the 21st century.
In the face of the modern liberal assault on Constitution-based values, an attack that has steadily snowballed since President Roosevelt's New Deal of the 1930s and resulted in a federal government that is a massive, unaccountable conglomerate, the time for re-enforcing the intellectual and practical case for conservatism is now. Conservative beliefs in individual freedoms do, in the end, stand for liberty for all Americans, while liberal dictates lead to the breakdown of civilized society - in short, tyranny.
Looking back to look to the future, Levin writes, "Conservatism is the antidote to tyranny precisely because its principles are our founding principles." And in a series of powerful essays, Levin lays out how conservatives can counter the liberal corrosion that has filtered into every timely issue affecting our daily lives, from the economy to health care, global warming, immigration, and more -- and illustrates how change, as seen through the conservative lens, is always prudent, and always an enhancement to individual freedom.
As provocative, well-reasoned, robust, and informed as his on-air commentary, Levin's narrative will galvanize listeners to begin a new era in conservative thinking and action.

Most assuredly. This book reads fast, very fast. I am interested in digesting the material at a slower pace, so as to catch more of the details. This book should, but will never be, required reading.
The epilogue was masterfully written and ties together the entirety of the earlier chapters.
Adam Grupper doesn't act per se, but the slight inflection changes bring a feeling of hearing old world speech.
This book didn't make me laugh or cry, but it did remove quite a few blinders of which I had previously not even been aware.
Regardless of a left or right party affiliation, this book is an inspirational must read. To scoff at it is to purposefully choose to keep the blinders on.
No, this is one you need to underline and re read.
The information that it contained
Good presentation given.
Not really. This is more of an informational book, not really a story.
Good information to have facing the future of what is coming about in America and the world
Yes, need to pass the word on the utopian agenda that the liberals are seeking and which would destroy our republic.
Contrast of current issues versus founding principles and potential results of that divergence.
I reccomend this book to everyone. No boubdaries.
Mark tells the truth like it or not. He is a true patriot
Yes. Perfect book with common sense, and stats. Makes one feel like it is so obvious what is being done and validates to me why most voters are ignorant and the politicians know it and do not care. Wish everyone could read this and understand their consequences when they vote. People have a right to make stupid decisions as long as they are informed. As Churchill is quoted as saying
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
This was my first audio book and it didn't disappoint. Mark is both a Conservative Historian and a Visionary. In this book he takes through examples of Historical fact to see into our future. All people who love this country and the American Way of life need to understand this book. Armed with the knowledge here you can not only defend conservatism but further the conservative cause as the only sure fire way to save this country and return to a land of prosperity.
Of course I would prefer the entire book to be read in Mark's voice, but Adam Grupper did an admirable job.
He shows us what has happened, happening and will happen... Opening One's Eyes... if they weren't already open
Wish Mark did the reading... Grupper is great, but hearing Mark spout Mark's words would be so much better!
Information not readily found in standard media
Constant unrelenting attack on our country's foundation, the constitution. Continual perversion of constitutional intent.
Lavine is a true patriot worried for his country like many of us are. His words memorialize what most conservatives understand is happening in this country but his collection of factual/historical information steels your resolve to try to make things right once more. A daunting task but one that must be undertaken. Nice job Mr. L
excellent work and wow a lot of information to absorb.
great book, must listen and read!
for me the audio edition is the way to go. It help me from getting caught up in the old english and I can get the whole story with all the details that I would not gotten reading it alone.
you can clearly see where government has taken power that belonged to the States and the people, and how they have fooled the people to return to tyrany of the Federal government.
yes, both have been or a high quality, I can't determin wich is better.
