Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sarah Chayes

Contemporary Culture • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Want to listen to an incredibly important, incredibly depressing, incredibly well-researched and well-narrated audiobook? Look no further. Sarah Chayes's work reveals levels of corruption present in the U.S. today that are likely to shock the listener. Chayes does a remarkable job both as investigative journalist and as narrator. Neither is surprising, given that she is a former NPR reporter. She delivers this audiobook with just the right amount of passion, incredulity, and pacing. Whether talking about the history of money--including a stunning recounting of the myth of Midas--or about present-day corruption scandals, Chayes provides a riveting and deeply disturbing look at ever-present threats to the very foundation of the United States of America. J.P.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2020 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
