    The Wave is based on a true incident that occurred in a high school history class in Palo Alto, California, in 1969.

    The powerful forces of group pressure that pervaded many historic movements such as Nazism are recreated in the classroom when history teacher Burt Ross introduces a "new" system to his students. And before long "The Wave", with its rules of "strength through discipline, community, and action," sweeps from the classroom through the entire school. And as most of the students join the movement, Laurie Saunders and David Collins recognize the frightening momentum of "The Wave" and realize they must stop it before it's too late.

    A Poor Rendition of a Good Book

    The book itself is quite good. Strasser tells an engaging story despite the book's short length and intended audience. The fact that I remembered this book 15 years after I first read it in school speaks to how well it delivers it's lessons in a memorable and digestible way to middle and high schoolers.

    Unfortunately, the audio side of this audiobook left a lot to be desired. First off, it was quite obvious to me that there were sections that had to be rerecorded and spliced in later. No fewer than five times did the audio quality drop off significantly and return to normal a sentence or two later. I know this isn't exactly a best-selling book with a massive budget for an audiobook, but I've listened to podcasts and self-produced audiobooks with more consistency.

    Lastly, I am unsure if it was a stylistic choice, an idiosyncracy of Michael Crouch's narration, or another mark against the editors but the pauses between sentences were distractingly long. A combination of the long pauses and the audible breaths taken during them made this a very hard book to get into. I got halfway though before I could successfully tune them out and really enjoy the book.

    The knowledge that this occurred just a generation after WWII is sobering. It is a reminder to question everything and take captive our ideas.
