Don't Hurt People and Don't Take Their Stuff is a rational yet passionate argument that defends the principles upon which America was founded - principles shared by citizens across the political spectrum. The Constitution grants each American the right to self-determination, to be protected from others whose actions are destructive to their lives and property. Yet as Matt Kibbe shows, the political and corporate establishment consolidates its power by infringing upon our independence - from taxes to regulations to spying - ultimately eroding the ideals, codified in law, that have made the United States unique in history. Kibbe offers a surefire plan for reclaiming our inalienable rights and regaining control of our lives, grounded in six simple rules: don't hurt people, don't take people's stuff, take responsibility, work for it, mind your own business, and fight the power.

Such a simple idea & concept to live our lives without the burden of an over bearing government. Mentioned things about Obamacare that I didn't know. I think Kibbe gives too much credit to Cruz, but credit where credit is due. Great book for understanding what libertarians believe.
9 out of 10
It's not necessary to listen to in one sitting. I just happened to be a captive audience due to a long drive over a holiday weekend.
I liked Matt Kibbe's personal story and what he links to his philosophy. He boils down Austrian economics in a simple form. If you're a libertarian with a small "L" you'll like this, if you're a constitutional conservative, you'll like this. If your an establishment member or a member of the progressive group think-you'll hate it.
Finally the book leaves up with a positive outlook for the future.
