Summary

Set in a world where crime and government coexist, American Made is the mind-twisting true story of CIA pilot Barry Seal that the Hollywood movie starring Tom Cruise is afraid to tell.
Barry Seal flew cocaine and weapons worth billions of dollars into and out of America in the 1980s. After he became a government informant, Pablo Escobar's Medellin Cartel offered a million for him alive and half a million dead. But his real trouble began after he threatened to expose the dirty dealings of George HW Bush.
American Made rips the roof off Bush and Clinton's complicity in cocaine trafficking in Mena, Arkansas.

WOW

If you could sum up American Made in three words, what would they be?

This book will change your worldview about politicians and the corruption at the heart of the war on drugs. I can tell by the Tom cruise trailer that the Hollywood movie is a total whitewash of Barry seal’s life. This book has the real story. It is even endorsed by Barry Seal’s son, Aaron Seal.

An engrossing listen with a different perspective

With all the lies told about the War on Drugs, it's really refreshing to find new information presented in such an entertaining way. Packed with details but never too densely to lose sight of such an exciting story, American Made definitely merits repeated listening.

The narrator really brings the characters alive, working well with the snappy dialogue and the revelations about some of our most famous political families are truly explosive.

If you're curious to learn more after watching Narcos or you want to know true story that the Tom Cruise movie is afraid to tell, this one is for you.
