This explosive new audiobook challenges many of the long-held assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans and Nazis, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on the trendy intellectuals of our times as well as historic interpreters of American life.

There's a strange realization you get when you're just a dozen minutes into this book. It's not about what you think it's about, but what it's about is truly mind-altering.

I promise you will change your view of culture, and history, forever.

This copy is easy to listen to, too. Clear, well-recorded, and convincingly performed.

Animal Farm - the history of a revolution that went wrong - is George Orwell's brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power. Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten. And something new and unexpected emerges....

This version is way too intense for me, and the sound quality is meh. I found it hard to listen to, and so I ultimately ended up listening to another version I found elsewhere.

It's a great book, but I wouldn't recommend this version.

If you ever wondered why it makes sense to be a good and positive person, this book will leave you with no doubt. You should be good and positive not only because it's righteous, but also because it leaves people no option except to like you in return.

I was already on a bit of a forced-empathy tangent when I started listening -- I'm a touch aspy -- but this book has convinced me that it should be required reading prior to entering the workforce. So many lost years, and lost opportunities!

Plainly performed, and very easy to understand.

It's like life-improvement broccoli. It's not amazingly delicious, but it's good for you, and you know it, and you know you have to eat it, but you've left it until the end of the meal.

It's time. Eat your broccoli. Listen to this book.
