Contrary to another conservative stereotype, Stein manages to keep a sense of humor throughout the book, writing in a conversational, amused style. His quips and lists read more like naughty office e-mail than diatribes from an angry right-winger: No. 3 in the 12 Ways to Tell If You've Joined the Right-Wing Conspiracy: "You sit all the way through Dead Man Walking and at the end you STILL want the guy to be executed." Longtime conservatives and converts like Stein will find themselves nodding their heads in agreement. Others will simply get a good laugh. --Jodi Mailander Farrell --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
And then there's the chapter where (against his wife's better judgement) Stein numbers the sexual exploits of his youth.
Stein personalizes political ideology, and it's interesting to read how he realized he was really more conservative than liberal.
Considering who he is it, understandably, is very well written - wonderful phrasing, use of words, ideas clearly expressed.
I was gifted one of Stein's essays. He is as good as any voice out there. He gets his point across without engaging in foolishness. Rush and especially the blond do that too much. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Lawrence D. Clayton
