pyrajane’s review #38: Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power by Rachel Maddow
Rachel Maddow makes me feel smarter because I like the way she explains things. She also makes me feel woefully under-informed because she is crazy smart. But she makes me feel hopeful because she knows what’s going on even if I’ll never be able to keep up. I love her.
I never would have picked up a book on military history if she wasn’t the author. It’s not that I don’t care about it, but I don’t understand it and find it confusing and super depressing.
This was fascinating and scary and, yes, depressing. Read more over on my blog, including an apology for any mistakes. I had the audio version for this and wasn’t able to tag the millions of things I wanted to talk about.
