Publisher's Summary

There's little truly "progressive" about Progressivism. True progress happens when humans are free, yet the Progressive agenda substantially diminishes freedom while promising the unachievable. Excuse Me, Professor provides a handy reference for anyone actively engaged in advancing liberty, with essential essays debunking more than 50 Progressive clichés.

Does the free market truly ignore the poor? Are humans really destroying the Earth? Is the government truly the first best source to relieve distress?

Compiled and edited by Lawrence W. Reed in collaboration with the Foundation for Economic Education and Young America's Foundation, this anthology is an indispensable addition to every freedom lover's arsenal of intellectual ammunition.

    "Fantastic content - bad narration"

    This is totally worth your while despite the stilted and rushed narration. Clear, logical explanations of why freedom works and leftism leads inevitably to disaster; presented n concise, individual topics.

    "Great book"

    Well thought out and well researched. Full of great information. I don't agree with them 100% but no one can argue that they don't know what they are talking about.

    "Very Educational"

    I've gained a much greater understanding of the free market and Progressive policies. I'd recommend this book to anyone looking to learn why Capitalism is the possibility the best form of economy.

    "Everyone should read this"

    This book, is amazing. It dismantles all most all of the Socialist propaganda that people spout. Should be required reading for high school.

    Story
    "Uber wealthy think tank denizens..."
    What disappointed you about Excuse Me, Professor?

    explain their criminality to The Stupids. This "book" would be comedy gold if it weren't apparent that they are dead serious.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lawrence W. Reed and Ron Robinson again?

    No. I have an IQ well over both of theirs added together.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I did get a kick out of listening to this robot. You can always tell that someone is married to an uber rich shyster when they simply cannot pronounce "rather." Rather, they must always say "ruther."


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

    None. It was enough to make me re-consider "progressivism."
