Would you consider the audio edition of The Road to Unfreedom to be better than the print version?
The Road to Unfreedom is a dense text, delving with deliberate action into history, philosophy, and politics. Listening can be mentally less taxing than reading.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
The book gives a comprehensive understanding of political narratives, and which ones are enticing but hollow and which ones aren't sexy but enrich nations and their citizens. It made me reconsider many of my political beliefs.
Which scene was your favorite?
The division of Identity Politics vs. Prosperity Politics made me rethink how I vote.
If you could give The Road to Unfreedom a new subtitle, what would it be?
The War Between Politicians Who Talk About Cultural Identity, Vs. Politicians Who Say What Can Be Done For Those They Represent
Any additional comments?
A must-read for those who wish to be informed about modern politics.

Being a big fan of Timothy Snyder’s book Bloodlands and someone who enjoys studying Russia, I really looked forward to listening to The Road to Unfreedom. I could hardly get through his many premises in the introduction including his belief that President Trump colluded with the Russians. I tried to listen to the first chapter to hear another point of view, but simply couldn’t stomach his many conjectures that he asserted as fact, rather than theory. Depending on ones political bent, this is a love it or hate it book. I’m afraid I fall into the latter category. Two thumbs down.
