LANDMARK: THE INSIDE STORY OF AMERICA'S NEW HEALTHCARE LAW AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR US ALL by the staff of the Washington Post (unabridged) was produced by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see below for features list). If you are at all interested or concerned about health in the USA, you need to hear this book. In this indispensable book, the staff of the Washington Post tells the story of health-care reform and explains what it means for the American people. Sections trace the tortured evolution of the legislation, showing how the Senate killed the public option, how the January 2010 victory of Republican senator Scott Brown left the Democrats scrambling, and how Democratic leaders ultimately negotiated among entrenched political factions—including disillusioned Democrats—to reach a compromise. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the same 5-star recording that is available through other retailers for higher prices. It is unabridged and professionally recorded at Blackstone Audio by veteran narrator Pam Ward. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “The Washington Post won four Pulitzer Prizes on Monday for reporting on subjects ranging from war to modern dance, and the New York Times won three awards, including one shared with ProPublica, a new nonprofit organization created to pursue investigative journalism.” – Washington Post • EXPERIENCE.
