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.

I always thought my government was here to help me. Once I realized we're going the opposite direction of freedom, liberty, and the constitution. This book has opened my eyes to the realization that governments have killed tons of its citizens by lying to them, WOW! I believe this book is a must read for all Americans you believe in freedom and liberty. Now I understand when Benjamin Franklin responded, "A republic, madam, if you can keep it"!
Another great book by Andy Andrews
Quickly becoming one of my favorite writers and one of the the most influential voices in my life. How to kill 11 million people is yet another title from Mr. Andrews that I will refer regularly to remind myself of the simple truths and lessons he imparts onto his readers.
Great read but awfully short for the price.
