Publisher's Summary

In a world of sound bites, deliberate misinformation, and a political scene that is colored by the blue-versus-red partisan divide. How does the average educated American find a reliable source that's free of political spin? 

What You Should Know About Politics...But Don't breaks it all down, issue by issue, explaining who stands for what, and why - whether it's the economy, income inequality, Obamacare, foreign policy, education, immigration, or climate change. 

If you're a Democrat, a Republican, or somewhere in between, it's the perfect audiobook to brush up on a single topic or listen through to get a deeper understanding of the often mucky world of American politics.  

This is an essential volume for understanding the background to the 2016 presidential election. But it is also an audiobook that transcends the season. It's truly for anyone who wants to know more about the issues, which are perennial issues that will continue to affect our everyday lives.

Let me introduce you to the world around you.

A great listen and mental exercise with over 20, one hour long chapters, it covered a plethora of topics from school vouchers, farm subsidies to, national security and foreign war. 10/10 would recommend to any one trying to grasp the basics of our government and how to begin to understanding the most simplistic interpretation of everyday news.

Instructional, not a great audiobook.

The narrator was boring to listen to and it may not be her fault because, the book, while informative (in the most high-level sense) is probably better suited for reference material than a straight-through read.

less fact based and more opinion based

like the title says it's a little bias, but still good information. I recommend the read.

Use of R word

Good book overall, however, I was disappointed she used the R word. Very informative otherwise.

Comprehensive guide to every aspect of the US political scenario

This book is very educational yet concise. Each chapter covers one aspect of the US government and economy and current debates. Great for someone who wants a wide overview of the US
