This was an excellent listen. I have an hour long commute, and was actually looking forward to the trip because I had more listening to do. This book started at US Pre-History, but very quickly progressed into the politics of the US, and typically stayed in a "political" theme. Almost every single US presidential administrations were briefly, and some not-so-briefly were visited.
I would recommend this book to someone who appreciates a good nonfiction book, and has a good block of time available.
My one critical point: I wished there were more "sections." The audible player (my Windows Mobile 6.1 device) only showed 7 sections, so if you loose your place, and don't book-mark, you will jump back too far if you go back to the previous section. I wish the Producer created a new section for every chapter.

This book started out really great. I felt I was learning and being reminded of some great facts from the past.
Then I got to more recent history that I lived through and found that the content was very slanted.
This causes me to doubt the things that I learned, making it impossible for me to recommend this book to others.
Also, this book ends before the recession of 2007.

I enjoyed listening to this book but it was not particularly satisfying. There are many "gaps" and the title is therefore accurate. I suppose, it is an interesting entry to this fascinating story.
