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.

    "Balanced and insightful..."

    ...like a cold slap in the face. Prager's reasoning is deep and rational. Everyone should listen.

    "Nah"



    good points, but lots of open ended topics with no answers. It's not bad but I believe there is better.

    "Must read to stop being brain washed!"

    The Left side in politics (usually Liberal/Democratic) has a very dangerous ideology, but it feels good, yet, it has terrible consequences. I was going in that direction; being brain washed by media, politicians, free thinkers until Mr. Dennis Prager rescued me, Literally!
    By the way, the Left ideology is not just in America and Europe, it is all over the world even in the Middle East and Africa. People look at it as the ultimate. I may not agree with the author in every thing, but overall, it makes perfect sense.
    Can't thank you enough, Mr. Prager.
    I found this book in public Library and got it on audible, it is so true and full of real facts.
    Always remember, when you cannot argue intellectually, you start calling people names like bigot, racist, homophobic, islamiphobic, sexist, close-minded,...etc the list never ends!

    "Amarica needs this book"

    Lots of good insight into what made and can make America good again. All can be American. We don't need to change America we need to help people see how good it is and embrace the good. We need to save America. This book tells that story and makes me want to spread the news.

    "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.
