It all comes down to the truth.

Much like the character in one of his best-selling books, Andy Andrews is first and foremost a Noticer. Sometimes, all one needs is a little perspective and Andy has been providing that perspective to some of the world's most influential companies and organizations for the last 20 years. His ability to transform an individual by their own understanding and desire has made him loved by millions.

Now, Andy Andrews brings his lessons and perspective into the important arena of government, citizenship, and what it means to completely uphold the truth.

If the truth is what sets us free, what does it mean to live in a society where truth is absent? How do truth and lies in the past shape our destiny today? Through the lens of the Holocaust, best-selling author Andy Andrews examines the critical need for truth in our relationships, our communities, and our government.

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.

The future of our country rests on the ability to separate the truth from lies, and Andrews compels each of us to examine our leaders' claims with a critical eye. His question-- how do you kill eleven million people?--is provocative, but his warning is clear: "Only a clear understanding of the answer to this question and the awareness of an involved populace can prevent history from continuing to repeat itself as it already has, time and again."

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.
