Become an informed, passionate citizen who demands honesty and integrity from our leaders or suffer the consequences of our own ignorance and apathy. In this updated and expanded New York Times bestselling nonpartisan book, Andy Andrews urges you to believe that seeking and discerning the truth really, really matters and that believing lies is the most dangerous thing you can do. You'll be challenged to become a more careful student of the past, seeking accurate, factual accounts of events and decisions that illuminate choices you 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. He includes several key documents written by our Founding Fathers as examples of America's core principles that present and future leadership should live up to and embrace. 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.
This is how it's done. This is why it's done this way. This is the result you can expect if you do it. These three pieces of information inform a conclusion about every part of each of our lives. Yet it is these three pieces of information that most often set an insidious trap-a trap that has held the imaginations of generations captive to the belief that because they are doing the best they can do, they are accomplishing the best that can be done. And while each of these three statements are true, not one of them is the truth. Dive deeper with bestselling author Andy Andrews as he shares his unique philosophy regarding foundational thinking. Through his unique and captivating storytelling, Andy helps you search for the reality that lies beyond the boundaries established in the name of best practices, industry standards, or the way things are done. For it's at the bottom of the pool that you discover a pathway to extraordinary results that most people in your position do not even know are possible. In the first year of our relationship with Andy Andrews, Fairway doubled its business volume - from $5.4 billion to $11.2 billion. The second year with Andy, we cracked $17 billion, and the third year we moved past $22 billion. - Steve Jacobson

What starts as a story of one person's everyday reality unfolds into the extraordinary principles available to anyone looking to create the life for which they were intended.
