ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: How Do You Kill 11 Million People?: Why the Truth Matters More Than You Think
Author: Andy Andrews
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: March 17, 2020
Genre: Motivational/Inspirational Political Science
Become an informed, passionate citizen who demands honesty and integrity from our leaders or suffer the consequences of our own ignorance and apathy.
In this updated and expanded New York Times bestselling nonpartisan book, Andy Andrews urges you to believe that seeking and discerning the truth really, really matters and that believing lies is the most dangerous thing you can do. You’ll be challenged to become a more “careful student” of the past, seeking accurate, factual accounts of events and decisions that illuminate choices you 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. He includes several key documents written by our Founding Fathers as examples of America’s core principles that present and future leadership should live up to and embrace.
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.
I have very mixed feelings about this book. I loved where Mr. Andrews was taking it in the beginning. I thought he had some amazing arguments and I felt like he backed it up with good evidence. However once we got out of part 1, it all kinda went downhill from there. Instead of inputting his own arguments and reasoning for why the truth matters and why we need to defend our freedom as American citizens, he just including a bunch of American documents, that I think was perfect evidence to build his argument around but rather we just read documents and then the book ended.
The Conservative in me wanted to rate this book higher, but the debater in me just couldn’t handle the second part of this book. I am the kind of person that backs my arguments up with evidence and Mr. Andrews had the evidence but not the arguments for that second half. The WW2 history and facts was probably my favorite part about this book besides that basic arguments on how to utilize and protect our freedom.
Overall, this book is a great book to read, but the second half is just a little bit of a let down.
