Publisher's Summary

Written in 1776, this call to arms for the battle of Independence rings with true common sense as it did the day it was written. Offered here for a historical perspective, it makes for great listening and a reflection for contemporary times.

    "A Voice for Liberty"

    Thomas Paine's historic toil to assure a well-informed electorate has never been more prescient. W.B. Ward's crisp, well-paced narration champions limited government with a fresh voice to once again herald American Liberty.

    "A Great Piece of History"

    This audiobook was a great piece of history. From the comments at the end of the book, I can fully understand why some of our founding fathers didn't agree with this. It was before we won the Revolutionary War. We were on shaky ground not knowing how we were going to manage our lives or if we were going to make it. I do hope this short book made it back to King George since he was basically "told off."

    W.B. Ward gives the book the treatment the book deserves. His voice and inflections are perfect for it.

    I really recommend this book for your audiobook library!

    "Common Sense Still Applies"

    Thomas Paine wrote this pamphlet 6 months before the Declaration of Independence.It sold 150,000 copies in the first year, along with standing room only readings to the public. Amazing, until you hear what he said! Over 200 years since, it is still relevant and resonates today.To think that his words have survived to give us insight into our Country's fight for freedom is extraordinary. I so loved the historical element, and the narration by W. B. Ward. His projection and intonation throughout made me feel as if I were hearing Thomas Paine himself, of which I'm sure he would have been proud!
