Schweikart takes 48 claims about American history that he ascribes to liberals and gives evidence for their fallaciousness and dishonesty, with considerable conservative anger. Narrator Sean Pratt expresses that anger with a cool and scornful asperity—but not a lot of energy. His tone gets across Schweikart’s scorn and bemusement but causes his occasional humorous asides to fall flat. Pratt’s quiet, clear, and precise voice allows the listener to easily follow the author’s points. Though he keeps up a good pace, it sometimes seems too controlled for the author’s disgust. Overall, the text calls for more pep and more alterations in tone to better fit particular passages. W.M. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2011]
