"Senator Sanders's gravelly voice and dramatic presentation are surely familiar to listeners. He reads with the same sincerity and earnestness he brought to audiences throughout his extraordinary primary campaign for president of the United States. A seasoned orator, he's particularly good at changing speed and intonation to emphasize the points he wants you to understand and absorb." — Publishers Weekly
This program is read by the author and Mark Ruffalo, an award-winning actor, director, producer, and social activist.
When Bernie Sanders began his race for the presidency, it was considered by the political establishment and the media to be a “fringe” campaign, something not to be taken seriously. After all, he was just an independent senator from a small state with little name recognition. His campaign had no money, no political organization, and it was taking on the entire Democratic Party establishment.
By the time Sanders’s campaign came to a close, however, it was clear that the pundits had gotten it wrong. Bernie had run one of the most consequential campaigns in the modern history of the country. He had received more than 13 million votes in primaries and caucuses throughout the country, won twenty-two states, and more than 1.4 million people had attended his public meetings. Most important, he showed that the American people were prepared to take on the greed and irresponsibility of corporate America and the 1 percent.
In Our Revolution, Sanders shares his personal experiences from the campaign trail, recounting the details of his historic primary fight and the people who made it possible. And for the millions looking to continue the political revolution, he outlines a progressive economic, environmental, racial, and social justice agenda that will create jobs, raise wages, protect the environment, and provide health care for all—and ultimately transform our country and our world for the better. For him, the political revolution has just started. The campaign may be over, but the struggle goes on.

From the FDR of our time.
How a campaign of, by, & for the people is done.
I really enjoyed listening to Bernie Sanders' narration through most of the first part, especially since much is biographical. The second half narrated by Mark Ruffalo is at a lower volume and hard to hear on my phone, he also sounds like he needs a throat lozenge.
Still worth it for the first half of the book as Bernie does a good job of narrating himself, but the second half is narrated monotonously and mixed at lower levels than the rest of the book. I'm going to buy the paper version for the second half because I found it on unpleasant to try and listen to.
