Format: Paperback
An entertaining book that will cause you to re-examine how and why you decided to become a liberal or conservative. Cohen provides a serious current-day philosophical debate in a most creative and delightful way that everyone will enjoy. It is filled with footnoted facts, yet almost every page will make you laugh out loud. Highly recommend for readers of all ages and persuasions, but especially to parents and teachers/professors who dare to challenge the younger generation to think for themselves. Bravo! Five STARS!!

Format: Paperback
Cohen's disarming style is perfect for starting a political dialogue where people of opposing views might actually listen to one another. As a liberal, this book gave me a lot to think about. I didn't feel screamed at or lectured to; I felt respected but certainly challenged. The book is very substantive and passionately argued but nonetheless is still quite a fun read. This should be required reading in political science courses. It's a great basis for discussing the major issues.

David Cohen's "Left-Hearted, Right-Minded" reminds me why I used to be a democrat. Today, I believe, the Democratic Party has lost its moral bearings and abandoned the classic ideals for which it once stood. Individual liberty, reason, tolerance etc. have been hijacked and thoroughly twisted and redefined to advance a worldview (socialism, utopianism, multiculturalism, Marxism etc.) that is markedly different than the one our Founding Fathers intended for our Republic. Thanks to insightful writers like David Cohen, the conservative message of limited government, free-enterprise, rule of law, U.S. Exceptionalism etc. is making great inroads into the American mind and paving the way for the death of radical liberalism. David employs humor and wit in his commentaries and shows how we can begin to heal our nation and put it back on the road to recovery. Chapter Five alone (Liberal Dave vs Conservadave: Soon to be a Major Motion Picture) is worth the price of the book!

This book was truly a fantastic read. It's not terribly long, and surprisingly engaging. Cohen, a former liberal, covers all the major issues -- immigration, healthcare, education, environmentalism, and the war on terror -- with poise and unbiased words. He examines the desires of liberals (which are actually very close to those of conservatives in many ways) and provides a logical and supported argument as to why liberal methods of reaching those goals aren't quite as great as they seem and why conservative policies seem to be the way to go to reach those goals in the least-consequential and least-painful method.

Social issues are not very evident in the book -- abortion, religion, gay marriage, etc -- and I think that's a good think. Too many people vote with their hearts and not their heads and unfortunately lump different stereotypes on liberals and conservatives alike that are likely not true for the majority of the people.

Everyone should read this book!
