About the Author

After 9/11, author Richard Bernstein re-examined everything he was taught to believe about American politics and the mainstream media. His research revealed disturbing discoveries, prompting this lifelong Democrat to become a Republican — and write a book about what he learned.

Richard Bernstein has been interviewed about Duped America by many national media outlets, including the Fox Business Television Network, the Dennis Miller show and many other nationally syndicated radio shows. His numerous op-eds have appeared in national publications and websites such as the Washington Times, FoxNews, Human Events, The Hill and Townhall.

Mr. Bernstein holds a bachelor's degree in economics and a law degree from the University of Maryland School of Law.

I pride myself on having a long memory. This has been useful when talking with people who want to go along with whatever political narrative they've been told, regardless of whether or not it directly contradicts what was said just a few short months ago. However, it's just me and my memory against whoever I am talking to, and so it is hard to find the facts/reportage that corroborates what my memory tells me.

This book is an excellent resource, organized by subject, of all the important issues.

The Bernsteins have put in an incredible amount of research, and found literally thousands of smoking guns showing exactly who said what when, and why that makes them a hypocrite now. Not an easy task -- you'd have to be almost prescient to do this as the articles come out, and just a few months later, the articles are buried in the stacks of some library, and you'd have to know that the article exists before you can search for it. That is exactly what our congresscretins are counting on. Vain hope.

If you're conservative, you should buy this book to open the eyes of the people you have discussions with. If you count yourself a liberal, I, for one, would like to see some answers to the questions and issues posed. Bernstein is fair -- he holds conservatives accountable where he finds them in need of such, and he does not use oddball or questionable sources (e.g. Fox News is not useful in this regard due to the way liberals view it...). I have no problems with accountability -- there's too little of that in the DC swamp.

You will not be able to read this book without becoming angry. That's a very good thing. Too many times we as an entire nation have been played for fools, and this documents it.

On the political spectrum I consider myself an independent, right of center voter, like most Americans. I am not an ideologue. I look at every issue independently and make my decision. This book not only addresses the issues, but places them in context and reinforces the conclusions with thorough research. I'm in my second career as a teacher and I tell my students how important it is to back up what you say and write with credible research, as this book does. There are some things this administration does that I agree with, but many, many things it does I do not agree with. Mr. Bernstein has researched the "big ticket items" and lays out his arguments in a clear concise manner. You may agree or disagree, but if you want to have a working knowledge of the major issues of our times I strongly recommend this book.

This book is a gem!
If you only have the time and resources for one book - this is the one to read.
I read a lot and I haven't seen any book that covers as many important topics with such factual insight.
Whether you follow politics or not this book is a must read for every American.
The book is well sourced which is definitely an asset.
Written by a former Democrat, he exposes the lies, deceipt and harmful policies of the Democrat Party and how the mainstream media is more than willing to aid them.
In chapter after chapter, the book explains the issues and sets the record straight once and for all.
I found his writing style easy to read and understand.

So far all the reviews are 1 or 5 stars; par for the course for political books.

I give it four stars: it's better than most in this genre. The writing is clear, fluid, and well paced. The book covers many topics in concise fashion. Where its real value lies is in the scrupulous use of footnotes. Every quote and allegation is carefully cited. So while you might disagree with the author's conclusions, he makes good arguments about how he arrived at them.

My only complaint about content is that the book takes very little time to start getting repetitive. As one example, Chapter 15 ("An Energy Policy--for Less Energy") begins with a discussion on the shortcomings of wind and solar as serious alternatives to fossil fuels. The chapter goes on to discuss fossil fuel policies. Fine. But then Chapter 16 ("The Answer, my Friends, Ain't Blowin' in the Wind") returns to wind and solar, repeating the beginning of the previous chapter. The logical thing to do would have been to combine these short chapters into one. Most of the 31 chapters could have been combined with others to make more comprehensive, less repetitive discussions; e.g., the first five chapters could have been a single chapter on national security and the war on terror.

I have a few small editorial complaints. First, the page presentation is mostly one-sentence paragraphs, much like a newspaper article. And rather than being set off with indentations, paragraphs are separated by vertical space. Maybe this is some new printing style, but I'm not too keen on it. My second gripe is how carbon dioxide is abbreviated CO², instead of subscripting the 2. While CO2 might be acceptable in a pinch, never would it be CO².
