I was looking forward to learning something until chapter 2.

The narrator is acceptable. The topics covered by the chapter listing seemed to be in order. However, I was completely lost of interest when he classified America as a democracy. How can I respect a person who is so fundamentally in error? America is a constitutional republic.
