If the truth is what sets us free, what does it mean to live in a society where truth is absent? How do truth and lies in the past shape our destiny today? Through the lens of the Holocaust, best-selling author Andy Andrews examines the critical need for truth in our relationships, our communities, and our government. In this compact, nonpartisan book, Andrews urges listeners to be “careful students” of the past, seeking accurate, factual accounts of events and decisions that illuminate choices we face now. By considering how the Nazi German regime was able to carry out over 11 million institutional killings between 1933 and 1945, Andrews advocates for an informed population that demands honesty and integrity from its leaders and from each other.

Quick and Powerful
Short and sweet. Okay, maybe not so sweet. How can killing 11 million people be sweet? [author:Andy Andrews|31934] doesn't sugarcoat this short novella. Actually the meat of the book is all done in the first half. At the end of this short listen you will come to realize that complacency is akin to murder. During the Holocaust it was the murder of 11 million people, 6 million were Jews. Today complacency is the murder of lifestyles, freedom, security and choices. Democracy is only as good as the voters and the leaders those voters put in power. Following and believing our politicians blindly can and did lead to the death of millions of people throughout our world at different times and in different countries. This timely book, albeit small, has a giant message to tell "The Truth Matters More Thank You Think".

This should be required reading for everyone.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, the most important thing is the truth, and the truth is being withheld from all Americans.
What other book might you compare How Do You Kill Eleven Million People? to and why?
Alike in value and different in subject is Amity Schlaes "The Forgotton Man" Both books are based on how we are manipulated by the people we elect. Both happened in approximately the same time frame and both have scary parralells with today. We must take care that we make wise decisions in whom we can trust to lead us.
Have you listened to any of Andy Andrews???s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The interview with the author was very telling. He is, in my estimation, a very honest person who truely wants the best for our country, by getting the electorate informed and engaged.
