Publisher's Summary

In this visionary book, Dennis Prager, one of America's most original thinkers, contends that humanity confronts a monumental choice. The whole world must decide between American values and its two oppositional alternatives: Islamism and European-style democratic socialism.

Prager - a bestselling author, columnist, and nationally syndicated radio talk show host who is read and heard by millions of people in America and abroad - makes the case for the American value system as the most viable program ever devised to produce a good society. Those values are explained here more clearly and persuasively than ever before.

Still the Best Hope deals with three huge themes: The first is perhaps the most persuasive explanation for why Leftism has been and will always be a moral failure, despite its acknowledged appeal to many people of goodwill. The second explains why fundamentalist Islam, despite its historic and growing appeal, cannot make a good society. But Prager holds out hope for an open and tolerant Islam and explains why it will emerge from faithful American Muslims. The third is a singularly persuasive defense and explanation of what Prager calls the "American Trinity": liberty, values rooted in the Creator, and the melting-pot ideal. These values are inscribed on every American coin as "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and "E Pluribus Unum," and they are the reasons for America's greatness. Without them, America will cease to be an exceptional nation, and therefore cease to be America.

Prager shows why these values can and must be adopted by every nation and culture in the world, why Americans must relearn and recommit to these values, and why America must vigorously export them. For if the world does not adopt American values, the result will be chaos and barbarism on an unprecedented scale.

    "Wow"

    The raw message is on point. Definitely will have to listen to the book at least one more time. Denny's Prager should be use as an example for the true American moral system.

    "Mandatory reading whether you're conservative or liberal"

    Dennis is so articulate, so thoughtful and so clear. I recently moved from Seattle to Prescott Arizona and wanted to get some idea of what my new conservative friends believe. They introduced me to the authors radio show and web site which were helpful but I wanted to dig deeper. So glad I bought this book. Whether you agree or not with his propositions it's a great read and a nice primer for anyone wondering what conservatives are all about.

    "Squarely frames Conservative/ American values"

    I truly enjoyed Dennis' insight and learned a lot. He has a very fundamental and pragmatic approach to laying out his explanations of the culture of both the left and the right. My only complaint is that sometimes it was difficult to keep up with everything in an audio format vs printed text.

    "Great"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Still the Best Hope to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the book version.


    Have you listened to any of Erik Bergman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The reader did a great job, i wanted to continue listening.


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

    No, good luck with that.

    "Anyone who cares about the future should at least read this"

    Anyone who cares about the future should at least read this. I do not agree with all of the opinions but it has made me reconsider how balanced a world view I had previously.

    I hope for a peaceful future by western standards and the arguments are fairly compelling. I would like to see Dennis Prager discuss some of this with Sam Harris.
