What if John Oliver of the Daily Show wrote the next five years or so of American history? The scenario might go like this: far right leaders of the Real American Party take over American politics and impose a purist form of Ayn Rand vision on its beleaguered citizenry, including a war on the poor (the makers vs. the moochers and takers), a new currency to replace the failed dollar (Real American Currency), programs to completely erase the federal government, hit reality shows such as The Real H ...more

I found this book very captivating, and I'm sure any other mystery book enthusiast would agree.

Good reads winner!

This book was a little outside my usual reading but I found it very engaging. Very politically heavy and thought provoking in a good sort of way. My father read a little so far and loved it. He's really into trying to fix that negative aspects of politics and this book got him sufficiently riled up! Good book for anyone into politics.
