Publisher's Summary

The vast right wing conspiracy has found its General Patton, and his name is David Kahane. Kahane's pseudonymous, satiric column for National Review Online, lampooning the Left via his Hollywood-radical persona - Stephen Colbert's liberal doppelganger - is must-listening for political aficionados of all stripes.

Now, from the inside, Kahane proudly exposes the secret and not-so-secret winning strategies (and vulnerabilities) of the Left and gives desperate conservatives a roadmap to victory, in a take-no-prisoners manual modeled after Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, C. S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters, Machiavelli's Prince, and, of course, the Chicago Way.

    Story
    "Excellent description of the political battlefield"
    What made the experience of listening to Rules for Radical Conservatives the most enjoyable?

    I really had never heard anything like this before. This man analyzed the parts of the political debate and how the left has succeeded in mastering the process. The right has simply showed up to the game and thought since they obviously had the best ideas they would win. The author shows that having the right ideas is not enough since most of the people who vote can not articulate a rational reason for their choice. Something else motivates them to vote, and the author shows us some of the tactics that need to be used.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You could listen to this book in a sitting, I listened to it on the road in my truck.

    Story
    "Disappointed"
    Would you try another book from David Kahane and/or John Allen Nelson?

    I was looking for a book that would provide insight into dealing with left wing ideologues. I was hoping to find a book that countered Saul Olinkys Rule for Radicals. This was not it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Kahane again?

    I wouldn't be likely to consider buying another book from this author.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I found no useful information coming from this book

    Story
    "Don't be Fooled, This One's a Real Sleeper"

    I'll be honest it took me about one or two hours of listening to "Kahane" beat me over the head with his sharp wit and sarcasm before I was finally able to move beyond the snarkiness and "get it".

    But once I did! This has got to be in my top five for 2012.

    Kahane leaves not a stone unturned as he rips Alinsky politics apart point by point, showing conservatives how to beat the left at their own game without losing your integrity in the process.
