A must read for voting Americans

Don't pass this up because you're a republican or card caring Hillary or Obama hater. Worth the educational value alone, this book provides a reasonably unbiased insight to eight years of important policy and decision making regardless of which side of the fence you reside on the issues themselves.

Life changing experience?

It certainly was for me. It is so important to understand the origins of cultural and social elements of our lives. This book should be required reading for every adult human being. It is so thoroughly informative that I intend to immediately listen again and study it like a college course. get it. If you regret reading it will probably be for the right reasons. truth can sometimes be hard to accept.

slow down and take a whole hour

What did you like best about The Basics of Robert's Rules of Order? What did you like least?

The subject matter was extremely basic for such a complex subject, but the unnecessary speed in which it was presented made it overly complicated to listen to. All the author and narrator needed to do was leave a second between sentences and perhaps several seconds between subjects to allow time to process what was being delivered. I had to listen to much of it a second time which defeats the authors obvious priority which was to deliver this in as short a time as possible. There was not enough information in the short presentation to warrant spending the money unless you literally had to chair a meeting that same day and hadn't a clue where to start.

Would you be willing to try another book from Dr. Earl E. Paul? Why or why not?

No.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dr. Earl E. Paul?

Yes

Could you see The Basics of Robert's Rules of Order being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Any additional comments?

Don't buy it... and return it if you did and can.

great book. .. missing Ryan

I loved the book. It provides interesting insight into Ryan the man and politician without being an autobiography. this book is 100% about Ryans hopes and plans for the republican party and our country with just enough insight to how and why he has arrived at those conclusions. this should be a template for every politicians statements and should be read carefully by every American regardless of party affiliation

Great story...but not what I expected

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Great insight to Scott Walker the Governor and terrific explanation from his perspective of what went on in Wisconsin. I was expecting a little more insight to Walker the potential presidential candidate. That was lacking as I don't think he's going to run an anti-collective bargaining campaign and win.

What did you like best about this story?

Walker read it. I felt like I got to know him and it was nice to hear the authors proper inflection and emphasis.

What does Scott Walker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His own personality and emphasis.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes
