Publisher's Summary

Rush Limbaugh is a way of life for over twelve million avid and devoted listeners. For three hours every day this comic conservative of the airwaves with "talent on loan from God" entertains, provokes and persuades friend sand enemies alike in a no-holds-barred show that is one of the biggest draws in radio history.

Using personal anecdotes, Limbaugh now reveals the major influences on his life and views, and blasts off on all the leading issues of our day. Nothing escapes his acerbic wit and huggable charm as he proves why he is on the cutting edge of societal evolution and the epitome of morality and virtue. Here he holds forth on such subjects as: Anita Hill, the homeless fraud, the media and many others.

Tackling the hottest topics of the times from Feminazis to Environmentalist Wackos, Rush Limbaugh is at his satirical best - the provocative conservative and the showman who is "documented to be almost always right 97.9% of the time" about The Way Things Ought To Be.

The second best political book I've ever read.

I bought this on audio tape when it first came out, those tapes eventually fell apart and I have looked forward to it's release in the digital format.

This book is the best encapsulation of conservative thought from the Pre Clinton Era, done with vigor, feeling and wit.

Excellant - Rush at his best

Rush brings to the table his wit and wisdom mixed in with a very personal touch. Every minute has you engaged, either in agreement or disagreement, such that you have to think about what might be next. Rush at his best. Enjoy !

Well said!

I love that Rush recorded this book himself. Hearing him deliver the content in his unique style was fantastic! It was interesting to hear Rush discuss situations that occurred over twenty years ago. I was able to see how some of these movements have progressed, and how the guilt and shaming tactic are still used today. I loved this book!

A little old but worth the read

God bless Rush to give the alternate view in a positive way.

Puts liberals in their place...

The only ones who would not like this audiobook are liberals and Rush-haters who cannot intellectually refute the points which he makes.

Voice of the Heartland

As a Democrat turned right by Ronald Reagan, I thank goodness for Rush. He keeps the flame alive. In this book he speaks for Middle America with singular intellect, insight, and clarity. The book is a treasure.

Rush at his best

Would you consider the audio edition of The Way Things Ought To Be to be better than the print version?

I'm ashamed to admit that I never read the book. I am a huge fan of Rush Limbaugh though.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

Everything Rush says is so completely true.

What does Rush Limbaugh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It's him reading his book. No need for someone to interpret what he meant, he knows exactly what he meant and conveys that perfectly.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Don't know, but a film about Rush sounds like a great idea.

Any additional comments?

Despite being a timeless book, I couldn't help but notice a difference between Rush then and Rush now some twenty or so years later. He's probably better now than then, but some of the youthful exuberance has worn away. The liberals have won so many battles in the past 20 yrs that it's hard to just laugh at them and move on with life.<br/><br/>One thing that Rush talks about in this book is Abortion and it was just as hot then as it is now. I think that in many ways his views on abortion have proven out. There is no reason for conservatives to abandon this subject and give up the fight.
