Down with the ruling class
Where does Extortion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
One of the most enlightening books I have listened to. It will make your blood boil. The bastards in Washington are getting wealthy beyond belief on the backs of ordinary Americans. Democrats and Republicans alike. Just like pro-wrestling, these guys put on a show on the camera and conspire behind the scene.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Extortion?
How the Harry Reid extortion machine has gotten incredibly wealthy for doing nothing other than being connected.
What about Jonny Heller’s performance did you like?
Johnny is easy to listen to and ads depth to the performance.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
We have to vote out all established politicians. This is not how the country was designed to work.
Any additional comments?
A must listen to.

The true behind the scenes account of Distinguished Gentlemen
This book gives a behind the scenes look at the games politicians play to gain money, power, and influence. I think it is a must read for anyone trying to understand what is going on in politics, and whether your being played by crafty word smiths
