I'm not exaggerating when I say there were a couple of times I teared up while reading this. I wasn't expecting his perspective (I guess because of his age and my experience with people in that generation and their politics) and a lot of what he talked about was what I have been thinking about lately. I say this a lot when I finish reading certain books, but I think we would benefit tremendously as a country if everyone took the time to read this or at least discussed some of the principles in this book.… (mais)

Fall 2020 (October);

I always appreciate Audible Original for throwing things into my path that I don't think I would have ever considered picking up, such as this. I felt deeply educated about another name I knew, but not so well, and now know so very much more about through the years. It was a good, clean, straight-forward telling, though personally done, obviously with some bias and emotion in places. I really ended up liking it far more than I thought I would.
