I enjoyed this book & the performance was great. The narration made this easy to follow ... clear voice & enunciation.
DNC is on the right side of the issues IMHO & the book offers strong arguments.
But I was dismayed when the DNC pushed for HRC's candidacy as this book did also. That's when you lost the argument.
I still give 5 stars & faith the DNC will do some deep reflection.

I saw the author on an episode of Realtime and figure what the heck... I was very much impressed by his take on the current election. The fact that he starts this book off with a drink recipe says what most are thinking when it comes to this election cycle...we must all be drunk in order to deal with this! Would recommend to others
It's 6 days until the 2016 election and this book is feeling very relevant right now. I suspect by next week it will still be relevant: either as an "I told you so" or a "we're so screwed" moment. I was disappointed that Carville did not do more of the narration. I can't give 5 stars on performance although I don't have a serious objection to the speaker. It just would sound a little better in a Cajun drawl.
Another hit. Carville in his own way explains and makes sense of all the things you thought you knew or understood. Background on everything from trickle down economics to how the GOP denies climate change. Well researched and has a sense of humour. Doesn't make you feel stupid for what you don't know and afraid to ask.
Lots of facts. Talk the truth and the republicans will slowly accept it.
