Using examples that resonate as powerfully on the Right as on the Left, Republic, Lost not only makes clear how the economy of influence defeats the will of the people, but offers cogent strategies to correct our course - from a constitutional convention to a Regent Presidency.
A onetime friend of Barack Obama, Lessig, a professor of law at Harvard, is as critical of the president and the Democratic Party as he is of Republicans. Both have allowed the core institution of our democracy to become little more than a shill for the most powerful moneyed interests in our Republic.
America may be divided, argues Lessig, but we must recognize that corruption is our common enemy, and we must find a way to fight against it.

A profoundly important book. A must read.
For anyone that is a lover of the American Republic, this is a must read book.
My only gripe: at times there are some weirdness in the sound production, but Lessig's reading is clear and persuasive.

Periods. Where there. Should. Not. Be. Periods.
I am going to write this review. Like the reader. Read. It. Throughout. He would start each sentence with a normal flow. And then. At the end. He. Would. Add. Pauses. This has the effect of making the sentences sound. Like. They had. Periods. Where there were. No. Periods. It would not have been so annoying. If. He only. Did. It. For. Emphasis. But instead, he did it on just about. Every. Single. Sentence.
I almost could. Not. Make it. Through. The. Book.
