Would you try another book from P. J. O'Rourke and/or Christopher Lane?
No. I don't think Christopher Lane has the right tone to deliver what O'Rourke writes.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
O'Rourke has very witty comments about the political system. The chapter about freedom was a bit too long.
How could the performance have been better?
It could have been miles better.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Don't Vote - It Just Encourages the Bastards?
I wouldn't cut it, just make sure that he narration has the same tone as the book.

This book is very amusing, but filled with interesting information. I finished this in two days so it's very easy to get through and not boring at any level. Probably not the best O'Rourke book, but it's still worth having. I will say that O'Rourke is getting both bitter & better in age. Try it, you'll like it.

PJ is probably one of the funniest American writers ever. I like to hear him wax on and off about his early life and about his wacked out libertarian views on everything from sex, drugs and cars. But here to takes on the Obama administration and demonizes it too heavilly.
He's funny, but angry and his bitterness at democrats having won the election is too much for the more free thinking listeners. Gone are the days of his rebel tales and fun stories, and now here comes this conservative, not even a libertarian one at that. Don't bother getting this, get the one about cars and get age and guile.
