This is a tough review to write. I decided to listen to the book as I enjoyed the TV Version of it and felt that was very well presented. I read a lot of history and have learned over the years that when it comes to the history of the world you have to take the good with the bad. This book is VERY well researched and has a lot of good information. My only problem with it is how it posts everything about the US as evil and every other country in the world as saints with no agendas of their own. The narrator does a great job and is very good throughout the book.

I've always known there was corruption
At all levels of politics but if even half this book is true, there are a number of countries that seem pretty well justified in their contempt for us.
Based on what I know of Oliver Stone, I wouldn't consider him an unbiased source so be aware of the source as you are reading this information. Also I saw some reviews by other historians that blast this book for its gross exaggerations and fabrications. I don't know their motivations though either?
This book does validate the feeling I've always had that politicians have a hand up their butt and we can't see whose in control. This book overall made me very sad and concerned for the world that will be left behind for my children. For the sake of us all, I hope we can turn this around.
