The Best of the Thom Hartmann Program features excerpts from some of Thom's classic Air America shows, including conversations with best-selling authors from across the political spectrum.

In Volume 2: Our Living History, Thom brings his deep grounding in American history to bear on current events. He explores ripped-from-the-headlines topics like the right-wing war on the middle class, the dangers of privatizing the military and healthcare, the threat of theocracy, the legacy of the American labor Movement, and what those Republican tax cuts really mean.

In this volume Thom talks to Chris Hedges (author of War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning), Kevin Phillips, and Paul Krugman. Download and start listening now!

    " Although it is not as good as Lakoff's "Don't Think of an Elephant" it is a good read. "

    " Talks about Neuro_Lingusitic Programming and the language of politics. How to communicate political ideas. Excellent book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Spencer | 2/13/2012

    " Great explanation of how politicians sell us policy that is bad for us. A bit heavy on the progressive rhetoric however. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Sanders | 2/1/2010

    " Great book on deciphering political language and how to communicate it properly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edmund | 1/15/2010

    " Very edifying... so much so that I think I'll need to re-read it in the near future. This piece does much to explain some of linguist George Lakoff's work, but from a psychological perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 12/8/2009

    " This book was really fantastic and taught some interesting communication tactics. Thom's background in psychology really aids in this book. I expect to use some of these tactics in the near future when discussing things with friends. "

    " I think this is an important book though I often found it horrifying and discouraging. Sometimes funny. Sometimes uplifting. Always informative. "
