FREEZE ! DON'T HIT THAT NO BUTTON YET ....
Charles Krauthammer is by far the most revered and most respected political columnist in Washington today. For thirty years, he has written editorials first as a Mondale democrat and today as a born again conservative. This book is a collection of Charles' writings that go back 30 some odd years.
It is interesting to witness the author's evolution from liberal to conservatism. According to the author, he didnt leave the democratic party, they left him. The chapter dealing with his brother Marcel was heart warming.
I have a challenge to all liberals who feel compelled to vote no on this review simply because the author is a conservative fox news commentator. Listen to the 5 minute sample. If there are any factual errors, then feel free to vote no. But if everything the author said is true, then spend the credit and buy this book. Even if you disagree with the authors political stance, there are many areas of this book that will grip you.
The best part of this book is the author reading this to us instead of someone else.
Professor McWhorter is FANTASTIC to listen to. I would give him 7 stars for performance but Audible only allows a maximum of 5 stars. The delivery and style are exhilarating. Just the right blend of wit adds to this wonderful listen. Don.t take my word for it, listen to the sample.
Where I fault the series is that way too much information is presented here for the introductory course. I did manage to totally enjoy this listen even though I felt at times over my head.
I totally recommend this audiobook.
Easy to listen to book. Makes you wish your son would want to go to the point.
