Description-
  • 2007 Audie® Award Winner - Judges' Award: Politics

    A fast-paced, behind-the-scenes narrative that tells the inside story of the CIA leak scandal and how the Bush administration used bad intelligence to sell—and then justify—a war that has changed America and the world.

    Written by veteran reporters Michael Isikoff and David Corn, Hubris takes the reader behind the scenes–far behind—to reveal and illuminate the controversial decisions and turf battles that were fought in the highest circles and most covert corners of the Bush administration as officials planned and then sought to defend the invasion of Iraq. Hubris connects the dots between George W. Bush’s determination to get rid of Saddam Hussein; the role of new-conservatives in pushing the case for war, the manipulations of Iraqi exiles. And the outing of a CIA officer, which led to the indictment of a top White House official and turmoil at the nation’s number-one newspaper. It’s a news-making account of conspiracy, backstabbing, journalistic malfeasance, bureaucratic ineptitude, and, perhaps most especially, arrogance.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Hubris could be subtitled: "The selling of the 2003 invasion of Iraq to the U.S. public, starring Judith Miller and Valerie Plame." The authors, both investigative journalists, have condensed political information from the media about the war into a readable capsule. Stefan Rudnicki's voice goes so deep one might think it's a recording being played at half-speed. He enunciates each word as though it were as important as all the others, and his unhurried pace allows listeners to concentrate on the audiobook's content. He doesn't attempt to imitate the famous characters, but clever pauses highlight the quotes as the text makes it clear who is speaking. This ideal combination of well-written research with a skilled narrator produces a listening experience much greater than the simple sum of its parts. J.A.H.
