Goldberg's relentless search for truth
Although non-fiction, there are innumerable 'stories', all with great insight.
No, but I can't wait for his next book.
At the very end of the book, his personal account of the struggle to write the book after his brother died, is moving and inspiring.
The author displays a breadth of knowledge, combined with intense research, that makes his analyses quite convincing. Although I was familiar with nearly all his topics, I learned a lot I did not know and was reminded of a lot I had forgotten. Leftist ideologues will hate this book, though I doubt they will get through the first chapters. But this is not simply a book written by a conservative selling his viewpoint. Instead, Jonah Goldberg proceeds from one over-simplifying, or distorting, cliche to another, dissecting them with keen insight and wit. I was relieved that this was not another conservative gospel. I listened to this book at the height of the 2012 presidential elections, and I began to wince every time I heard the candidates refer to the "middle class." You will know what I mean if you listen to or read this bood. Of the 200 books I have listened to from Audible.com, this is unsurpassed.
