    This passionate, erudite, and groundbreaking book will appeal to readers of Steven Pinker and Thomas Frank. It is a fascinating read for anyone interested in how the mind works, how society works, and how they work together.

    D. Saguy says: "An absolute must read before the 2012 elections"
    "Very good book; poorly prepared reader"

    What did you like best about The Political Mind? What did you like least?

    I like Lakoff's ideas, and I think everyone can benefit from carefully considering his approach to framing. The reading was distractingly poor.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ideas are important. I taught critical thinking in college for about 20 years, and I wish I had had some of Lakoff's ideas about framing for those courses.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader should have prepared himself a little by learning how to pronounce a good many of the words he mispronounced, and by finding a smoother way to deal with attribution sprinkled through the book. I found the reading distractingly poor
