What made the experience of listening to Listen, Liberal the most enjoyable?
I grew up in a Republican household and consider myself to be fiscally conservative and socially moderate. I never really knew much about the evolution of the modern Democrat party, and this book really helped me see the transition. The author is very clear and concise when speaking and I found myself in many ah-ha moments.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Listen, Liberal?
Frank is not afraid to explore the mistakes of past Democratic administrations. I like he is not afraid to critique the actions of Clinton and Obama, and frame them as a variance from traditional (Historical) working class Democrat values.
Which scene was your favorite?
Overall, the first parts of the book where he talks about elitism, pedigree, and merit system of the Neo-Liberal Class.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
That I might be a 50's Democrat since I am surely not a modern Republican
Any additional comments?
I came across this author during an NPR interview on Monday (3/21) and downloaded the audio book immediately afterwards. My wife, who is on the extreme left, also enjoyed it.

An important and timely book. Explains clearly how the Democratic Party has lost its soul. Does and excellent job of chronicling the Clinton years and the Obama Presidency. Excellent work for Progressives to use going forward.
