THE WRECKING CREW How Conservatives Rule

by | Read by Oliver Wyman

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Thomas Frank puts solid research behind his book on corruption, cronyism, and manipulation under Republican administrations. He's glibly partisan, making clear his admiration for liberal ideals and even calling conservatives "wing nuts," but he criticizes the Clinton administration for not living up to his ideals. Narrator Oliver Wyman hits the right tone, blending mock naïveté and sarcasm with indignation for breezy listening on a heavy topic. Although the writing conveys a mocking attitude throughout, Frank takes a more serious, thoughtful tack in his conclusion, calling for long-term change that could make both parties nervous. With writing aimed at the ear and a strong reading, listening is the way to go for this hot book. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
