Citizen Perot by Gerald Posner (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Provocative….a tremendously informative work about the enigmatic public figure. (Audiofile)
Based on meticulous research, hundreds of new interviews, and Perot’s own cooperation with the author, this book strips away the mythology and misinformation to unmask the real Ross Perot for the first time, studying his efforts to create a third political party and his accumulation and use of power.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie-winning narrator, Christopher Lane. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
It isn't often when a scene in a book makes you want to stand up and cheer, but the scene Gerald Posner presents...did that for me. (The New York Times Book Review)

RATING: Suitable for Adults interested in the biography of an enigmatic American legend.
The result of two years of meticulous research and hundreds of new interviews, Citizen Perot strips away the mythology to unmask the real Ross Perot for the first time.
Based in part on Perot’s own unprecedented cooperation with author Gerald Posner, this book narrates a life that is rich in detail and unique for what it has attempted and accomplished. Studying Perot from his childhood to his efforts to create a third political party, Posner delivers an exhaustive inspection that cuts through years of misinformation and distortions to lay bare Perot’s accumulation and use of power. In the process, it answers the perplexing question of what motivates Perot. It also shows whether he has the temperament and personality to be an effective president. Citizen Perot is an absorbing examination of a man who has become an American icon.
