Editorial Reviews

Review

"Andrews reads his 28-minute essay in clear and concise tones. Focusing on truth and honesty, Andrews asks first how the world could stand by while the Nazis killed Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, and more before and during WWII. In word and performance he stresses the importance of standing up for truth and honesty in interpersonal relations, in government, in politics, and in business. Andrews’s discussion of truth and honesty is followed by an 18-minute interview about “The Path” and the philosophy of morality and leadership. Proclaiming himself neither Democrat nor Republican, Andrews puts forth provocative questions that challenge listeners to consider the importance of the truth in the administration of government and business and, indeed, their involvement in the future of this nation."

From the Inside Flap

"Several years ago I asked myself three questions: Where do we begin to find common ground in regard to what we want (or don't want) for the future of America? Is it possible to write something that doesn't use the words Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, yet conveys a message with which everyone could agree? Can it be written in a concise fashion allowing anyone to read it, clearly understand the message, and be empowered in less than fifteen minutes?
Here, then, is my answer to those questions."
- Andy Andrews

I have read well over 1000 books over the past 10 years. And out of all those books, there are probably about 20 to 30 of them that I could honestly say were paradigm-shifting, life-altering in their implications and/or profound in their application. This book is now in my Top 20.

Let's begin with 2 facts:
1. The book is short. It will probably take you an hour to read from cover to cover. The "meat" of the book only takes up the first 47 pages. The remainder is a candid interview with the author, a reading guide, and a bibliography. Believe when I say that the "shortness" of the book doesn't diminish it's value in the slightest. Those 47 pages are Gold, not just because of what the author wrote (You, me and everyone else could stay up all night, every night for a week and not think of half the stuff this guy comes up with), but for the questions, ideas, and impications he leaves the reader with that he didn't have to write down.
2. Andy Andrews is known best for his "Fiction with a Moral" approach. This is not one of those books. It isn't warm and fuzzy. It won't make you feel giddy when you finish it. It's Nonfiction, non-religious, non-partisan and borderline unclassifiable. The only way I know how to put it is by analogy: Two speakers of antiquity, Cicero and Demosthenes. It was said of Cicero that when he would finish speaking, everyone would agree that he had given a well-worded, finely-crafted speech. It was said of Demosthenes that when he would finish speaking, the people stood and said "Let Us March!". This book is more Demosthenes than Cicero. Just like every other book this author has written, it is neither a call to emotion nor intention. It's a call to Action. It's a call to Honesty, first and foremost with ourselves.

You've heard the joke: "How do you know a politician is lying? If his lips are moving." Politicians lie. It's become an accepted axiom in American politics. But the consequences of a populace that simply accepts lies as part of the political process can be devastating.

It's no coincidence that Andy Andrews' new book releases on the same day as the Iowa caucuses kick off the election season. Andrews doesn't focus on Republican or Democrat, left or right. Instead, he seeks the one piece of common ground everyone should be able to agree on. Whatever your political leanings, do us all a favor and pick up a copy of "How Do You Kill 11 Million people?"

We've been lied to for so long that lying has become an accepted part of our culture. What if everyone told the truth? In a book you can read in one sitting Andy Andrews has punched us in the stomach with a truth so profound you can't forget it. This book can change the way you think about politics and politicians and the direction of our nation. And it can even change the way you see yourself. Please read it.

Every American citizen, or citizen of a democratic country for that matter, should read this book. It truly is a wake up call and turns the ignition in the minds of any thinking person. Mr. Andrews artfully delivers this all with no hint of bias, no preaching, and no finger pointing other than to us, the readers and citizens who elect and live by our own government.

This book is powerful in its brevity! It is common sense applied to historical facts and current events. Yet is gives helpful insight into human nature. I found myself dropping my guard to read the thoughts and concerns of a fellow American. I did not have to take a side to see his side. The truth does matter more than we think and this book causes me to think.

Andy Andrews is best known for motivational and what some call fuzzy fictional stories that inspire. So how does a successful New York Time bestseller leave his comfort zone and write a book with a title like, How Do You Kill 11 Million People?
For those who have visited the author's, History Summer Camp Series, perhaps that question is not so hard to answer. Andrews is an admitted late blooming history wonk. But his interest goes far beyond that of a collector of facts. He is more concerned with how often we fail to make logical connections between the past and present.

Be forewarned; this book is short, blunt, and sobering. In typical eBook spoiled brat fashion, a couple of Amazon reviewers give the book two stars because it costs too much for such a short work. If you share the attitude that the value of the words of a book is solely determined by its length and format I would suggest you not waste your time reading any further.
Did I mention this book is blunt? The first 20 pages introduce us to some staggering numbers that chronicle what populations allowed to be done to themselves in the last century.

The sobering part of Andrew's premise is that in many ways the Holocaust victims of Nazi Germany "allowed" themselves to be killed. He asks the question this way. What follows is the author's brief yet detailed account of how Hitler and Eichmann managed to carry out their "Final Solution" as the citizens of Germany and for a good while the rest of the world, looked the other way. The bottom line answer is simple yet difficult to swallow.
Though Andrews never names a political party and repeatedly disavows any particular agenda, I have no doubt various and even opposing ideologies will attach themselves to his words. Such will be a disservice to the truths presented here. Liars and a willingness to be lied to are not the sole territory of one party. This book and history shows there is plenty of that to go around and be shared by all.
