#1 New York Times bestseller, this is
a visionary analysis of the degradation of our public sphere and its

Peace Prize winner, bestselling author, activist, and political icon, Al Gore
has become one of the most respected and influential public intellectuals in

Gore has written a farsighted and powerful manifesto for clear thinking. Download and start listening now!
