Many speeches I had not heard before
The majority of the speeches favor a traditional or conservative political perspective. Some of the writings didn't lend themselves to the audio format (the Articles of Confederation, in particular). I really enjoyed the later part of the book. I was struck by how long the academic trend has been anti-American. Such a deep seated philosphy will take a long time to counter.

Appropriately Titled! EVERY AMERICAN MUST!
Where does The Essential American rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
What did you like best about this story?
The fact that these documents were all assembled and packaged so concisely.
What about Vanessa Hart and Jim Meskimen ’s performance did you like?
Short, sweet, to the point assessment of what we were about to read/hear.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
They got me in the first few minutes. Hated interruptions!
Any additional comments?
Find a philantopist who would give this audible to EVERY HIGH SCHOOL/or/College Graduate! Or somehow, instead of music in elevators, trains, airplanes, airports, PLAY THIS! Too good to be true! Thank you, Ms. Cushman!
