In this compact, nonpartisan book, Andrews urges readers to be "careful students" of the past, seeking accurate, factual accounts of events and decisions that illuminate choices we face now. By considering how the Nazi German regime was able to carry out over eleven million institutional killings between 1933 and 1945, Andrews advocates for an informed population that demands honesty and integrity from its leaders and from each other. Andy Andrews believes that good answers come only from asking the right questions. Through the powerful, provocative question, "How do you kill eleven million people?"-the number of people killed by the Nazi German regime between 1933 and 1945-he explores a number of other questions relevant to our lives today: Does it matter that millions of ordinary citizens have checked out of participating in the decisions that shape the future of our country? Which is more dangerous: politicians with ill intent, or the too-trusting population that allows such people to lead them? How are we supposed to tell the difference between the "good guys" and the "bad guys?" How does the answer to this question affect not only our country but our families, our faith, and our values? What happens to a society in which truth is absent? Andrews issues a wake-up call: become informed, passionate citizens who demand honesty and integrity from our leaders, or suffer the consequences of our own ignorance and apathy. Furthermore, we can no longer measure a leader's worth by the yardsticks provided by the left or the right. Instead, we must use an unchanging standard: the pure, unvarnished truth.

An absolute waste of time. If you are a student of history, this book is so simplistic it's nauseating. If you are thinking of borrowing it, don't.

Simplistic and disappointing. His main suggestion appears to be that we should validate if our elected leaders are telling us the truth by checking the Internet. A complete waste of time.

In 80 short pages Andrews offers the most compelling call to political action I have ever experienced.

How do you kill 11 million people? “The answer is breathtakingly simple. And it is a method still being used by some elected leaders to achieve various goals today. How do you kill 11 million people? Lie to them.”

“Does adversity build character?...It does not. Almost all people can stand adversity of one sort or another. If you want to test a person’s character, give him power.” “… let me add one thing more. Power corrupts. Humanity’s need for those in power to be of high character increases as the importance of the position of leadership increases."

I appreciate Andrews point of view immensely when he answers the question, “Who is lying to our country right now?” by saying “Sorry, but I’m simply not going to answer this question. The purpose of this book is to get you to answer that question for yourself!”

I heard the interview on Dave Ramsey's podcast and decided to see what this book was all about. I was not impressed. It is definitely thought-provoking, but just not the impressive content I expected from Andy Andrews.
