Book Overview

Engaging and inspiring . . . Reading this book should make you want to vote.--Barack Obama

In a world of sound bites, deliberate misinformation, and a political scene colored by the blue versus red partisan divide, how does the average educated American find a reliable source that's free of political spin? What You Should Know About Politics . . . But Don't breaks it all down, issue by issue, explaining who stands for what, and why--whether it's the economy, income inequality, Obamacare, foreign policy, education, immigration, or climate change. If you're a Democrat, a Republican, or somewhere in between, it's the perfect book to brush up on a single topic or read through to get a deeper understanding of the often murky world of American politics.

This is an essential volume for understanding the background to the 2020 presidential election. But it is also a book that transcends the season. It's truly for anyone who wants to know more about the perennial issues that will continue to affect our everyday lives. The fourth edition includes an introduction by Martin Garbus discussing the themes and issues that have come to the fore during the present presidential cycle.

   Overall good & Informative
The book is good in general and I would recommend it to others. It seemed to me to have a slightly left slant, but not overwhelming and not in a way I would expect to be insulting to the majority of more right-wing folks. There were a few statements made that I doubt the accuracy of. Moreover, I agree with many reviews that express disappointment that the latest addition is not really up-to-date, which is the reason for my 3 - star review.

   Very informative
A must read to open one's eyes to the facts and not the polarizing hype that swirls in social media.

   Good review, not updated
My biggest disappointment is that there were no substantive changes between the 3rd and 4th editions. I would have liked to have an update on how recent events impacted the issues at hand.

   Left leaning garbage!!
I am on the 9th page and there is no doubt that this book is 100% left leaning. She continues to illustrate false actions from the Democratic side and hardly any references to the Republican side. I was concerned when I saw Barack Obama as the quote on the front cover of the magazine. I was hoping for more of a fact-based book, but that is the problem today.

   Excellent way to get back in to politics
As a political apathetic for a long time, I needed a Cliff Notes version of current issues.

   Make it mandatory.
In high schools or at least college, this should be really mandatory.

   Pretty good
It would be nice to see a more up-to-date version.
