Very informative

I had a very poor knowledge in political sciences before I listening to this book.
After listening to this book, I now have a very good overall summary of political and economical systems.
The book emphasises a bit more on United States political and economical systems, however there are also reasonably good examples of different political and economical structures across the world.
The book sets a good overall picture, so we can explore more on the topics that interest us, and connect the dots.
Now I can better understand the political views across the world, and know to whom I vote for, and why.
