Publisher's Summary

You've been lied to by the government. We shrug off this fact as an unfortunate reality. America is the land of the free, after all. Does it really matter whether our politicians bend the truth here and there? When the truth is traded for lies, our freedoms are diminished and don’t return. In Lies the Government Told You, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano reveals how America’s freedom, as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, has been forfeited by a government more protective of its own power than its obligations to preserve our individual liberties.

The Judge! I learned, I laughed, I cried for the loss of my freedoms.

I was a liberal. The lessons pointed out here are the same ones I found out about myself.

interesting book but....

if your a "conspiracy buff" as they call it like myself who has read most conspiracy books out there then your not really going to learn anything new from this book, but the author does add his unique experience as a judge to explain the points, this book is ready with passion by the author himself, but at times I feel as if he is yelling at me lol, that aside the performance is superb, and the material is interesting, I would recommend this book.

This is the best book I have ever purchased!

This book is a non partisan assessment of the greatest frauds of our government. This information should be covered in our schools and addressed in our society until change occurs. In short, it is an Awakening.

More Proof we have to reform our government

this was a treat to have the author read it himself. His patriotism to the nation is duly noted for helping to inform the people our misrepresenting political parties aka Republicans and Democrats are traitors. This should be taught in schools.

What you weren't told in school.

If you could sum up Lies the Government Told You in three words, what would they be?

Interesting, SHOCKING and maddening.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

How long the government's been messing with the truth and how bad it's gotten as the federal government has increased it's own power.

Have you listened to any of Andrew P Napolitano’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've not, but I don't think he's gotten any other books on Audible. I listen to him at the Mises Institute and other times when he's been a guest speaker. I find him very interesting as a serious constitutional scholar.

Any additional comments?

No matter what political party affiliation, this will drive one to drink or go off grid. It does make one a bit more of an activist against government overreach-all types-military, civil liberties, etc.

Judge Andrew Napolitano is a true American Patriot

What made the experience of listening to Lies the Government Told You the most enjoyable?

This books gives facts that will make you aware just how you and I have been tricked and mislead throughout our lives. Because we must know the truth. The lies go back to the early days of the American experiment.We all must know the truth or be led like fools or sheep down the road that is false. We Americans are not so foolish and this books makes it very clear what the truth is. If you are one of the People and care about our future and the future of your children and this nation then take this book and learn from it. What we do counts, what we know when it's the truth can only make us wiser to make better choices and decisions. The judge is a man who loves his fellow Americans and his nation, he gives us the facts without any pussy footing.It's too bad our government has to lie and there is no excuse.

What other book might you compare Lies the Government Told You to and why?

War is a Racket because it has the truth for us to see and know.

If you could give Lies the Government Told You a new subtitle, what would it be?

What Every American Should Know.

Any additional comments?

Get this book and encourage everybody you know to read it if not talk about it with everyone including young people.

One of the Most Depressing Books Ever!

The audio book title sets the hook of curiosity. As the hearer progresses from one topic to the next, thoughts like "WOW! what can be next?" spurs the intensity of desire to not stop but proceed to the next topic.

The sheer number of examples of lies perpetrated by the Government that the Judge documents is overwhelming. He covers a lot of material, and has done a masterful job organizing and concisely addressing each topic.

The Judge organized the narrative into 17 topics which greatly facilitated absorbing the range and depth of thoughts. He covers a tremendous amount of information and ideas.

The length of the performance is long, which was unavoidable given the subject matter. The Judge kept the narrative moving and interesting with voice inflections, etc.

The above headline is by no means a criticism of the book. If the trend toward big-Government continues, then the examples the Judge presents while appalling will be tame. This is a must-listen/read for everyone that seeks to be an better informed Citizen.
