Format: Paperback
Where Latter-day Responsibility stands out is in the honesty with which it addresses the question of liberty and all that liberty necessarily requires. This is the natural corollary to Boyack's first book, Latter-day Liberty and very effectively teaches how personal responsibility is essential in order to enjoy and preserve individual freedoms.

One might think a book on responsibility might leave the reader feeling guilty or that they fall short and that it might be a heavy read. To the contrary, Boyack's book is enlightening, motivating and entirely relevant to the societal environment in which we find ourselves today.

His chapter on self-defense is a great case in point. I've always thought of myself as a provider and protector in my home and family, but not really given a significant amount of thought to the protector role. Reading this chapter, however, has profoundly changed my perspective and leaves me realizing how much more of a personal responsibility I have to be prepared to defend myself and my family should the need ever arise and what a mistake it is to think that publicly provided services could ever suffice. I look forward to personally improving in this area!

In his characteristic way, Boyack employs sound logic throughout, is easy to read and shares well-researched, insightful quotes and commentary.

Perhaps my greatest takeaway was that a moral and responsible people should demand to be granted life in a free society. Implicit in his writing is a charge for all to more fully take ownership of life and to live such that we can enjoy a life of liberty and engage in those activities that will make that possible.

From what I know of the author, he doesn't write hypocritically. He genuinely strives to practice what he preaches.

This was a very good book. While I may not have agreed 100% with everything that was written, I do agree 100% that everyone should read this book. The overall message should be clearly understood by every American who loves this country. It simply is not enough to love the country while sitting in your lawn chair watching the world go by. We should be actively engaged in preserving and protecting that which we profess to love. Mr. Boyack does a great job of bringing may quotes and perspective of other great minds into a common theme to make his points clear. I have highlighted more quotes from this book that perhaps any other book, save the words of God only. Very well thought out and delivered.

If you read this book, then you must also read the companion book - Latter-day Liberty. The two books go hand-in-hand.
Judge Andrew Napolitano called the book, "Clear, Compelling, Full of Faith". I would completely agree! Connor has done an outstanding job of utilizing scripture, church authorities, Founding Fathers, and other authoritative sources in supporting his arguments. His rhetoric is well done. I think the key word here is "compelling". Every American should read this book and come to realize that to preserve personal liberty every american needs to take greater personal responsibility. It will happen in no other way!

This book makes me want to take control...of my own life. Connor Boyack inspires his readers to want to be better, kinder, more charitable, and responsible for their own lives and the lives of others through voluntary action instead of looking to others to do it for them. Due to the title of the book I'm afraid most who SHOULD read it probably won't. It will definitely remind and inspire those who already appreciate self-reliance, freedom, and doing good for others. If nothing else you can gather valuable tips on how to be more responsible and gain control of your life through entrepreneurial and philanthropic efforts. It's one of those books you'll want to read more than once.

Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book to people of all religions and political persuasions. Although it is written with a perspective of a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS or Mormon) and a self-professed libertarian, the principles in this book are applicable to all walks of life. The author, Connor Boyack, brings a much needed discussion to the table about the importance of becoming self-reliant and gives good advice on how to become so.

Boyack proposes that in order to reduce the cost of government programs and the size of government we must first put ourselves in a position where we do not rely upon government for our necessities. Even liberals who widely support government programs understand that if there is too much pressure on the program it can harm the program, and that the end goal of such programs should be to enable people to stand on their own two feet. I would add that this would even relieve the burden that private charities must bear as they try to fill needs that are not filled elsewhere.

Self-reliance is a message that can resonate with everyone. This book puts it very simply and describes steps that are easy for anyone to follow in order to obtain self-reliance in many aspects of their lives at their own pace.

This book can be an amazing and inspiring tool. If everyone were to follow the advice therein, our nation would quickly be led into a state of increased liberty and prosperity.
