"Dr. Paul cured my apathy," says a popular campaign sign. THE REVOLUTION may cure yours as well.
"The U.S. is cartwheeling into a self-destructive catastrophic calamity, and despite what everyone else says about how to solve it, Paul believes he knows the real truth that can save us. The one-time presidential hopeful's goal, to drastically reduce government and thus give us the true sense of freedom that the Constitution's framers meant, is oversimplified in a country of more than 300 million residents. Certainly, his critique of current politics is sound and well felt, but the plans of this Republican pol, who praises Robert Taft in every other sentence, are anything but revolutionary. Bob Craig provides a deliberate and elderly tone that can be emphatic without being overbearing, which matches well with the text and Paul himself. However, the production contains a surprising amount of background noise that reveals sloppy work on the sound editor's behalf. A Grand Central hardcover."
