G. Gordon Liddy's wit, wisdom, and no-holds-barred approach brought legions of devoted listeners to his daily radio program, and made his autobiography, Will, a monumental best seller.
Now he brings the same inimitable style to When I Was a Kid, This Was a Free Country. Listeners will be alternately infuriated and amused - but always enthralled - as "The G-Man" reveals what has been wrought by liberal politicians, government bureaucrats, "enviro-radicals", "fulminating feminists", "devotees of diversity", and countless others.
Americans have surrendered their precious freedoms to these "politically correct nitwits". When I Was a Kid, This Was a Free Country is a fascinating story, told as only G. Gordon Liddy can tell it.
Liddy's nostalgia filled journey through his own lifetime to an America that is no more is an interesting way to pass some time. Those looking for deep insight, greater expansion of Watergate history or other weightier topics will not be pleased. However, it is an enjoyable if somewhat light, look back aft a time that has passed us by.
Perhaps the highlight of the book is the narrator's uncanny ability to make you think that it is Liddy himself reading the story. He sounds enough like him that it only adds to the book's enjoyment.
