Friedman examines the current involvement of the U.S. in world politics and economics and then extrapolates upon his observations over the next 10 years, making more or less Machiavellian policy recommendations for how presidents can advance U.S. interests. Bruce Turk’s narration is clear and measured, a style that is appropriate to the gravity of the topic and the sometimes complex material. However, his stately reading gives many phrases an overemphasis that can exacerbate Friedman’s tendency to sound portentous or pompous. This tendency lessens some after the introductory section, and listeners not put off will find a book that—whether they agree with it or not—will give them much to think about.
