Publisher's Summary

From Steve Sheinkin, the award-winning author of The Port Chicago 50 and Bomb , comes a tense, exciting exploration of what the Times deemed "the greatest story of the century": how Daniel Ellsberg transformed from obscure government analyst into "the most dangerous man in America" and risked everything to expose the government's deceit.

On June 13, 1971, the front page of the New York Times announced the existence of a 7,000-page collection of documents containing a secret history of the Vietnam War. Known as The Pentagon Papers, these documents had been commissioned by Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. Chronicling every action the government had taken in the Vietnam War, they revealed a pattern of deception spanning over 20 years and four presidencies and forever changed the relationship between American citizens and the politicians claiming to represent their interests.

A provocative audiobook that interrogates the meanings of patriotism, freedom, and integrity, Most Dangerous further establishes Steve Sheinkin as a leader in children's nonfiction.

    Story
    "'' Most Dangerous " the best book ever to explain the insider view of the Vietnam War."

    I loved this book because, being in my early teens I did not understand how anyone could WIN the Vietnam war. With all the causalities being reported. This book gave me an insight into this war , and effected my feeling greatly. I love Ray Porter"s narration. He is a perfect narrator for Most Dangerous . I listened to it straight through.

    Covert spy & crime thrillers with lone heroes. Lots of action, start to end. Bad endings = bad book. Love Jack Reacher & Nathan McBride!!

    "Not My Style"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Not bad, but hard to know what is true and what is now. Not a big history buff.
