    The son of proudly Communist parents, David Horowitz became a major figure in the 1960s New Left. He is by no means the only intellectual and activist to have moved from the Left to the Right in recent decades, but few have done so while maintaining such a high profile and outspoken style. His book therefore becomes not only an important and fascinating memoir of the 1960s but also a devastating analysis of the legacy of that time.

    Tom says: "Remarkable story, Wonderful narrator."
    "Remarkable story, Wonderful narrator."
    Overall

    This riveting tale offers a mostly honest and moving second look at both the old left and the new left. I was a student at Berkeley in the 60's, and now I am approaching my own 60's. Horowitz captures our acute longing to perfect society and our abject failure to do so. On the negative side, Horowitz' personal attacks on some of his adversaries raises questions of balance, but overall a fair overview. The narrator-Marosz-did a spectacular job. One of the best I've heard. I immediately purchased another book based on his narration.

    The world is on the brink of disaster. Iran has just conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah — known as the Twelfth Imam — has arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second Holocaust and the annihilation of Israel.

    Susan says: "Rosenberg does it again - couldn't put it down!"
    "Not a spy thriller. This is an Islamophobic rant."

    Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Christopher Lane?

    If you loved the Left Behind series, this is for you. Otherwise look elsewhere.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joel C. Rosenberg again?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    If your world spins "Christians good, Moslems bad" this is up your alley. But it is a dark alley indeed.
