Sintesi dell'editore

Here to rescue the reputations of our Founding Fathers from the plague of modern political correctness is The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers. Author and professor Brion McClanahan shows how patriots like Franklin, Madison, and Hamilton laid the foundations of American civil liberty and had a better understanding of the problems facing us today than our current Congress.

Timed to launch before the Fourth of July, this brand new "P.I." Guide will vindicate our Founding Fathers and hold them up for what they truly are: the pillars of American society.

Highly Recommended

It was refreshing to hear about the Founding Fathers through a lens that is traditional as opposed to the 'pc' versions of modern academia.

Straightforward and to-the-point with highlights that illuminate the main attributes of each of the men.

I had planned on a review of the main characters. It was a bonus to have the forgotten/unknown characters also reviewed.

I have listened two books by Joseph Ellis. They left me with little appreciation for the gifts that Americans should enjoy as a result of the sacrifices of that generation. Quite the opposite with the treatment that McClanahan provides.

Highly recommended.

Politically Incorrect/founding fathers.

Would you listen to The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers again? Why?

Yes I would listen to it again. If for no other reason just to "rehash" all the information contained.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the mix of professional/personal lives in it and I also enjoyed the vast number of historical facts I didn't learn in school.

What about Tom Weiner’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed his voice and inflections, very easy to listen to.

Astonishing clear facts about lesser known founder

If you could sum up The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers in three words, what would they be?

I would suggest the author does a great job or translating history into an 18th century timeframe. He does a good job warning readers to not apply 21st century values to the founders. A good fight back against the idea of colonialism books that almost alway disparage American history as racist and all bad.

Should be required reading for all citizens!

Very interesting research on our founding fathers—although I read a lot on this subject, I still learned a great deal! Relatively short and to the point. Very well written. I feel as if I knew the founding fathers better! Narrator’s voice is extremely deep but otherwise narration is fine.

Refreshing perspective

Well done and well presented. I could have done without some of the backhanded sarcasm that closes several of the sections but, notwithstanding such editorial commentary, this is a fine selection for those interested in some of US history's lesser known names of greater influence than one might have imagined. It is always important to view their actions and writings in the context of what was "normal" in their day and time. This work does a fine job of bring that contextual focus to the narration. Enjoyable and recommended.

Eye opening

This should be required reading in every middle/high school in America. We have come so far from where we started!

Every right thanking American should read this book

Dispatch will make you realize how far the Democratic Party has taken America or the USA to the brink of destruction not the party of my grandfathers but the democratic party today condemn everything about America that made it great I want to destroy it open borders no prisons taxation without representation is ridiculous and it will show you our founding fathers thought the same way over 200 and some years ago read it it is good

Dogmatic dribble

It feels like it was based off a history book from the 1920’s. He basically underlines that white rich men founded the US on “Christian” values and beats his chest on to the right wing drum. I learned nothing from this book. The narration is not bad but how he reads the alpha male content makes it feel even more one sided than it is written. Waste of time because either you know and believe the partisan way it is presented or you will will be shaking your head as we know there are two sides to every story and this doesn’t portray that.

Truth to the American Progression

We are taught in grade school how the founding fathers of this great nation were all in congruent agreement towards a new republic and are represented as demigods. This book tells the real story of these great men, their misgivings towards a new nation and shortcomings as individuals. Great read! Should be in every college level American history class.
