Even though this was written during the Bush administration, it's amazing how accurate and how relevant the information is for the upcoming 2016 elections. I can only hope that people read this book and inform themselves as to Hillary Clinton's background and history before they decide to vote this year.
This was very eye-opening for me. Explained the root philosophies of Fascism and tied together threads of Fascism, since the late 1800's. The chapter on Hillary Clinton really helped me understand her mindset & where she's trying to go.
Johnny Heller provides solid performance as always.
The title makes it seem like Goldberg is claiming that today's liberals are fascist. In actuality the book's primary goal is not to attack liberalism with the claim of fascism but to defend conservatism from it. There is a lot of rarely discussed history in it. I suggest reading the afterword before finishing the book because it helps put the author's ideas in context.
Loved it. Jonah Goldberg uses his usual wit and great writing style to create an encyclopedia of the broad array of fascist applications over time and across the globe. He does an excellent job of linking the modern-day liberalism to it's roots in early progressivism and ideological origin in Europe's various fascist movements.
This book really is a must-read.
This book help put together a picture that I'd previously couldn't regarding the Left. As a Black man trying to understand Left and Right policies, it's great to have a book that delves into the dirty, and often hidden, past of the Liberal Party.
This may be the most important book written in the last 25 years. The Left in America controls our language. Goldberg provides much needed ammunition for conservatives to counter this reality.

Absolutely brilliant, replete with excellent history and not only a recitation of facts but a tying together of facts, events, themes, philosophies, movements, regimes, and personalities in modern American and Western politics. You'll have to read it at least twice to fully comprehend all of what's here, but it won't be a chore either the first or second time through.
Yes,I would recommend this book to a friend.Why? Because it defines what a leftist is and it shows how leftist dogmas don't work .
Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph by Dennis Prager.
In the words of Albert Arnold Gore, An inconvenient truth!
It must have taken Goldberg at least a year to write this book.I commend him for it.Everyone on both sides of the political spectrum should read it .
This should be required reading for anyone on the left or anyone learning political philosophy.
