Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Popular radio host Michael Savage returns to print with another attack on the forces of liberalism that he believes are tearing America apart. Using the same brash, abrasive style in his writing that has become a trademark of his radio show, he writes that "the Left operates specifically to undermine God, country, family, and the military" and that liberalism is "either treason or insanity" or "a mental disorder." He also takes on illegal immigration, the state of health care in the U.S., the "Hollywood Idiots," and the decline of schools and morality in general, all of which he blames on Liberals. Savage also drops bombshells such as: "Federal courts and judges in America today are to be more feared than al-Qaida," and Ruth Bader Ginsberg's appointment to the Supreme Court is "akin to appointing the general counsel of the Ku Klux Klan to the bench."

Statements as bombastic as these deserve to be backed up with substance and well-thought out arguments, yet Savage offers little more than an anecdote or two before moving on to the next rant. This is not to say he doesn't make some good points or highlight blatant abuses by government, questionable suits brought by the ACLU, or morally bankrupt product coming out of Hollywood, but one can't help noticing that several shades of gray have been left out of his black-and-white arguments. Due to this lack of hard facts and background, Savage's book is not particularly convincing. Still, Savage does consistently challenge readers with controversial opinions and conclusions, so it would be a shame for potential readers to dismiss his book simply on ideological grounds alone. And if he really sets your blood boiling, you can always call him up on his show and take him to task. --Shawn Carkonen

From Publishers Weekly

According to the conservative shock jock, host of the syndicated radio show Savage Nation (and author of the bestselling book of the same title), America's greatest threat comes not from terrorists or foreign nations, but from liberals. In the outrageous, controversial style that made him a hit on syndicated radio-and cost him his short-lived TV show on MSNBC-this wide-ranging screed covers Savage's strident views on everything from the courts to the military, the media, universal health care, religion, public education and what Savage sees as the decline of American morality. In sweeping, purposely dramatic prose, he accuses "mad dog" leftists of a conspiracy "to undermine God, country, family, and the military." Select examples are given of what he sees as democracy run amok, such as one teacher who reportedly gave extra credit to her class for writing antiwar letters to the White House and refused extra credit to a student who wrote a letter supporting the war. Heavy on bluster and light on facts, however, Savage's attempts to stretch such anecdotes into a portrait of national decay appear specious at best, as do many other colorful claims, such as that the Democratic Party views "the Judeo-Christian faith as public enemy number one." On the radio, Savage's tough talk is designed to jolt listeners. Fixed in print, his words are even more startling, resonating with hate and intolerance. As for his now infamous firing from MSNBC for telling a gay caller to "get AIDS and die," Savage offers a weak defense, suggesting that he was the victim of a conspiracy.

Michael Savage tells it like it is.

Everybody should read this book and if they did we would get our Country back from the liberals that are trying to steal it from us.
William C. Boggs
Dr. Weiner/Savage does the usual butter-me-up, like on page 104.

Having actually read The Enemy Within from cover to cover, Michael Savage blew me away with his incredible insight, his sharp wit, his personal stories, and his command of the facts. Without question, this is a more powerful dose of the Savage Truth than his previous New York Times No. 1 best seller, The Savage Nation.
Why? Savage has really done his homework, digging up the dirt on the Hollywood Idiots who are waging a war on our war against terrorism; he exposes the educational Czarina's who shove condoms on cucumbers down the throats of children-just wait until you see what public schools are teaching the kids in sex ed starting in kindergarden; and, for those who survive high school, Savage takes you on a wild ride through the college campus scene where hookers are guest speakers at Ivy League schools, where U.C. Berkley now offers a minor in "transgender-gay-bi-leso" studies, and where classes in porn with trips to strip clubs have replaced Plato.
And that's just for starters.
He'll get you hollowing mad at The Dogs of Hate-those "mean-faced, clipped haired" libs who live to censor the faith and freedoms of those who happen to embrace religion. And you'll find his research into the way the Centers for Disease Control is abusing our tax dollars nothing short of alarming. Then again, some sheeple have trouble coping with the facts. Which is probably why Savage wisely documented every last powerful jab of truth.
Savage is a master storyteller who never fails to entertain even while unleashing a verbal-tongue of the Red Diaper Doper Babies, PETA, the ACLU and other hard-left, facist-leaning psychopaths who are attempting to hijack America with their weapons of mass deconstruction.

I have loved Michael's first book THE SAVAGE NATION and this book is the new testament to the libs' audacity to encroach upon our freedoms.
Savage often takes phone calls from people who lived in the former Soviet Union and I am on of those people.
Recently, a woman called from San Francisco. She got her degree in Communist Philosophy from a Moscow university and even she could not believe the extent of liberal propaganda in the academic establishments here.
Read this book if you still care for America and want to know how to defend it against its enemies. If thou knowest thine enemies, so to speak, you are better prepared to face them when they come knockin'.

I got chills reading this book. Ive read many books, on similar issues, but this one really touched a nerve. Michael Savage is not another blowhard for the Republican Party, he holds both parties accountable. When I picked up this book, I couldn't set it down. Not many like this one, I promise you that. READ IT & SEE

Format: Hardcover
The other recommended book to read along with this one is Laura Ingraham's "Shut Up And Sing". Both clarify the insidious undertow that exists in our country today. Both books attempt to wake people up to the reality around them. Michael hits on all my hot buttons. He confirms what I have seen with my own experience in the education system, the prurient lifestyles, etc., etc. We�ve both been on this planet for about the same time�him a little longer, but we both draw on our memories of the positive things of the past that have been totally trampled by the current judicial system and the ACLU et al�s total lack of moral compass. We both see the unrelenting attack on our senses with things that are literally forced down our throat. The single star �reviewers� who did not read the book are really the preachers of hate. Open your eyes, sheeple!

The perfect blend of great humor with strong opinion makes Michael Savage so unique and liked. Just like with The Savage Nation, with The Enemy Within he has done it again. I find his books the only political books that reads like a novel. Indeed, once you pick up your copy you become addicted to his saying-it-as-it-is style. Michael doesn't care to be politically correct, he doesn't care to side with any particular party, he simply blasts at anyone who tries influencing our culture and moral with their venom.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Michael Savage has hit another home run with this provocative book of his no-nonsense expression of conservative ideas. Dr. Savage does not apologize for his concrete conservative stance on the important issues facing our nation today. If only the vast expanse of our liberal college campuses would begin to expose our next generation to some of this truth serum...

Format: Hardcover
America is being desecrated, infested, demoralized, and dehumanized by the likes of perverted liberals who are theologians, politicians, union leaders, racists, sexually-confused "its", members of the media, and other wolves in sheeps clothing. Dr. Savage, in his comical, yet, blunt way, unzips the disguises of these wolves and exposes their lies, agendas, and foolishness. A must read for everyone, except children. Because of some of the issues addressed, it is too mature for children to read. Take what you read, and then teach your children the principles of morality he defends and teach them to spot a lie from a liberal. I got it and devoured it during the commercial breaks between his programs.
