5 Star Fantastic!
If you are interested in the history of the American government, read this book. It is a non-bias account on government policies and programs throughout the years and it is packed with useful information. Easy listen, great book. In my top 5.

A master class -- as good as it gets
I have read scores of books in this area. This one is at the very top. If you are interested in what government did and didn't do in citizens' lives in the times covered here, how it paid (or didn't pay) for that, and what the legal-governmental (and behind that, philosophical) frameworks for all of it were, look no further. The explanations are lucid and well-chosen. This book brings heaps of insight. And that helps us find benchmarks for our decisions today. One great disabling problem the American public has, in my opinion, is a lack of depth in precisely the things this book explains. And we are all paying for that, daily and dearly.
