Beinart's title makes some bold claims, but his book is hardly a litany of the Angry Left. The accessible and informative text is ably brought along by narrator David Slavin. This is a case in which the reader's tone and style match the text well. No matter what your political persuasion, Beinart's book deserves a listen because the research is good, the arguments are cogent, and the text is snappy and well put-together. Production is also good, with high audibility in a noisy car. And the CDs are divided into logical chapters, rather than split every 3 minutes, as is usually the case. That convenience gives this audiobook extra merit points. T.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
