Reich offers a bold plan for defeating this politics of fear and favor. He provides clear answers to the barrage of accusations with which Radcons have been pummeling liberals. He analyzes the efficient Radcon political organization and their propoganda savvy, and lays out what liberals can learn from each.
Reich demonstrates how far the radical conservative agenda is from representing the national will, and explains how American liberalism can, and must, become once again ascendant in American politics.

"Reich's distinctive perspective provides insights targeted well beyond November's election." (Publishers Weekly)
"His experience as a government appointee gives him credibility; his experience as a TV and radio pundit gives him considerable style as narrator. Blessed with a pleasant voice, he reads expressively." (AudioFile)
Using a menagerie of powerful quotes, Robert Reich does a fine job of describing what ails the right. he gives a fine description of neoliberal globalization, though it was a little awkward to listen to from somebody who doesn't like neoliberal globalization. There's a large section dedicated to it, and what kind of jobs Americans can expect to train for in the future. Overall a good book, an easy read, and quick to get through. I recommend it to anybody who's trying to understand what's going on in the world.
Very sensible and well produced examination and evaluation of our current situation in politics. Anyone who wants to learn both sides of the picture should listen to this one.
?Reason? is a dangerous book. Liberals risk whiplash by constantly nodding their collective heads in agreement as Robert Reich exposes how the ?top 2 percent??you know, the mean-spirited neo-cons?attempt to control the world by putting down the poor and the working class. Conservatives, wishing Reich were there in person so they could grab and twist his scrawny neck, risk stroking out every time he spews forth with yet another exaggeration, half-truth or outright lie.
If you?re a lib, buy it, invite your friends over to listen, and wind up the evening holding hands and singing a rousing chorus of Kumbaya. If you?re a mean-spirited neo-con like me, you?re better off making a donation to the NRA, or using your funds to help pillage a small, Third World village.
This book frames the issues perfectly and accurately. This is the best political book I've "read" in quite some time.
