From legendary comedian D. L. Hughley comes a bitingly funny send-up of the Obama years, as "told" by the key political players on both sides of the aisle. What do the Clintons, Republicans, fellow Democrats, and Obama's own family really think of President Barack Obama? Finally, the truth is revealed in this raucously funny "oral history" parody.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Listening was time not well spent. I forgot how toxic and offensive to normal people the bickering of politicians is. To be clear this book IS FUNNY. But it's also a disgusting.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I wouldn't have changed the story. The story is about stupid people fighting and lying to each other...like what politicians always do.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

I liked Bill Clinton actor.

Was Black Man, White House worth the listening time?

If you are a junky of this type, yes.

  • Adios, America

Ann Coulter is back, more fearless than ever. In Adios, America she touches the third rail in American politics, attacking the immigration issue head-on and flying in the face of La Raza, the Democrats, a media determined to cover up immigrants' crimes, churches that get paid by the government for their "charity," and greedy Republican businessmen and campaign consultants - all of whom are profiting handsomely from mass immigration that's tearing the country apart.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book is a culmination of 40-50 years of bad policy. The results are raped young women and murdered citizens.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

It's brutal honesty. Many of the stories are horrible to hear, you may want to vomit or turn it off--I know I did, but I persevered through.

What does Ann Coulter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ann brings both the anger of having to live through her story and having to write it. You feel, (if you know anything about Ann) that there is a personal side to this story, a side which tells of story of empathizing with the book's victims. Ann as a woman and a political commentator expresses the grief, anger, and hatred of the common man for the political elite.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

NO! It is a very hard to listen to. I cried at parts and it is very moving, so smart doses is the best.

Any additional comments?

There are really dumb Tingle sound effects and blings is the ONLY think that takes away from this book and it's reading.

  • Real Dissent

Nothing makes traditional left and right kiss and make up faster than when they're faced with an articulate libertarian. Avert your eyes from this dangerous extremist, citizen! Government is composed of wise public servants who innocently pursue the common good! In Real Dissent, Tom Woods demolishes some of the toughest critics of libertarianism in his trademark way.

Where does Real Dissent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I got audiobooks for this book and it was well worth it.

What other book might you compare Real Dissent to and why?

It reminds me of other historical/philosophical books summarizing problems and positions. It goes into good detail and poses strong arguments which are not easily defeated.

What about Thomas E. Woods Jr.’s performance did you like?

Everything. His writing is good, his reading is good. He is a master of his subject.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

As Tom Woods puts it. Destroying the 3 by 5 card of allowable opinion.

Any additional comments?

Interesting from beginning to end, this book criticizes a number of issues and intelligently enacts a world view which is capable of more.
