Personal insights & observations of US political and social issues over a writers lifetime. Thought provoking, inspirational and in some cases visionary.
Loved it. Really enjoyed the commentary. She definitely puts in words the thoughts of a conservative intellectual. I never realized I should label myself as such.
Despite being a former military officer with a strong sense of flag-waving patriotism, this book struck me as an interminable rewrite, or at the least re-positioning, of history. Not unexpected based on having read the author's columns for many years but compacted in this format one risks overdosing on Reagan, religion and Republican self-aggrandizement. This one's going back for a refund.
It is clear why she became successful as a speech writer. An enjoyable insight into a different world.
If you've heard Peggy noonan's narration of her book what I saw at the revolution you'll be disappointed by how poorly the narrators of this book capture her cadence and tone. Such overacting.
The WORST part is that the narrators are constantly mispronouncing words! Famous people and places- their names butchered! Embarrassing. Did anyone check this before it was released?!
I can't even finish the audiobook and I'm already more than halfway through.
This collection of stories is both pertinent to our day and an at times happy, sometimes jarring reflection on the past.
