I actually found many parallels to my own life while listening to this book. I didn't find it overly preachy but it was interesting to see what makes someone of Michaels background (i.e. liberal upbringing, schools, communities) become conservative in their own life. I too grew up with a more liberal influence and found as I got older that it didn't fit with my ideals and beliefs. Michael did a wonderful job and I always recommend the unabridged version since I like to know I heard every bit. The only negative was that Michael didn't narrate himself, but the narrator did a good job and kept me engaged.
