Meet the essential Bernie Sanders, an authentic and uncompromising champion of the people.
Independent United States Senator Bernie Sanders, who has a 35-year career in public service, first as Burlington, Vermont's mayor, then as Vermont's sole representative to Congress, and currently as a United States senator, is now campaigning to become president of the United States. His goal is to build a movement to take back our country from the rich and powerful, and return it to its rightful owners - we, the American people.
Sanders' common-sense, populist message is resonating with Democrats, Republicans, independents, as well as ordinary working-and middle-class Americans from all walks of life, including millennials, seniors, veterans, immigrants, environmentalists, union workers, and more.
In this short, accessible audiobook, author Jonathan Tasini draws heavily from Sanders' ample public record of speeches, statements, and interviews, and couples his working-class spirit with specific legislation he has championed on a number of core proposals that comprise a broader people's agenda for America, including:
A national, single-payer health care system
Free public higher education
Taking on wealth and income inequality
Preserving Social Security
Caring for our veterans
Ensuring civil rights for all
Combatting climate change
Reforming Wall Street
And much more
The Essential Bernie Sanders and His Vision for America is a must-listen for anyone who shares a vision for a forward-looking, sustainable, and more just United States of America and is eager to change the course of history.

I FEEL THE BERN AND IT WILL NEVER EVER DIE!
BERNIE HAS MY VIEWS. I FOLLOW POLITICS EVERY YEAR ALL YEAR. ELECTION OR NOT. WHEN I HEARD HE WAS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT I WAS ELATED!!!
IT GIVES YOU A BASICS ON BERIECRATICS.
NO BUT I KNOW BERNIE'S POLITICS VERY WELL. I READ IT IN SEVERAL SEGMENTS.
I AM MOURNING THE FIXED PRIMARY THIS YEAR. BERNIE MAY HAVE WON IF THERE HAD BEEN MORE DEBATES ON DAYS WHEN PEOPLE WATCH MORE TV. THE PRESS AVOIDED COVERING HIM UNTIL THEY HAD NO CHOICE, AND THE DNC HAD NOT INTERFERED WITH THE ELECTION. I LEFT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AFTER OVER 40 YEARS LAST APRIL AFTER VOTING FOR BERNIE IN THE CONNECTICUT PRIMARY.
