Amazon.com Review

Michael Savage is the host of The Savage Nation, a radio program that airs on over 300 stations nationwide. A self-described victim of "truth-in-mouth syndrome," he claims to be "the only man in the country saying it the way it really is." His stated purpose for writing the book is to save a "homosexualized, feminized America" from a liberal assault that is "unraveling the very fabric of this great nation." Declaring that "a minority of feminist zealots rule the culture," he blames Democrats and liberals for everything from a general decline in morals in the United States to bringing the Taliban to power in Afghanistan. Although one chapter is entitled "Crimes of the Democrats" (with special attention paid to Al Gore), Savage is no Republican stooge--this "bipartisan basher" reserves plenty of venom for the GOP as well, particularly regarding immigration, one of his favorite subjects. Savage calls for a severe tightening of U.S. borders and vigilant racial profiling in order to combat terrorism and the spread of infectious diseases. He also rails against liberal media bias, big government, the lack of prayer in schools, rampant pornography, the UN, the ACLU, and a host of social ills that he believes were caused almost exclusively by hippies in the 1960s and the Clinton administration in the 1990s.

Like many talk-show personalities, Savage is confrontational, angry, entertaining, and prone to exaggeration, sometimes all at once. He can also be funny and sarcastic. But while he does offer some interesting observations and enough food for thought to make this slim volume worth a read, his book is essentially one long rant with precious little useful information to back up his often bombastic claims. His angry-man shtick may make for stimulating drive-time listening (and high ratings), but it doesn't make for a particularly convincing book. --Shawn Carkonen --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Mr. Savage, I found out early in the reading of his book is very well educated, which gives his points more credence than I otherwise would note. I have also, since reading, listened to his radio show. As for the analysis:
His Ideas:
Savage is highly controversial and provides the tone in a very provocative manner. I enjoyed his lucid and amusing commentary although he is more prone to attacking than laying definitive substance to illustrate his points. He has a tendency to attack individuals in addition to their ideas, which in my mind, gives him less credibility. However, the amusing character of the sections and the short, easily read sections, allow for a very entertaining read.
Unlike other conservative authors like Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, and Michelle Malkin, Mr. Savage does not use citing and a highly fact based presentation but relies on his own words. This is a novel approach in this genre, relative to other recent books, and provides a more entertaining read but i belive this would turn away the more moderate reader or one who is not familiar with Savage's ideas. He discusses EVERYTHING. This is a high point, he leaves nothing out. However, there are times when I would hope that he develop his points more throughly because I like to not only know his ideas but be able to use the noted facts for my own arguments on similar issues.
Who Should Read this Book:
What kind of reader are you? If you are the reader who wants that entertaining read, and wants to know the basis of Savage's understanding of the issues our society faces, then please read this book. On the other hand, if you want the more academic, well documented research that would be used to sway one who is a fence sitter on any of these issues, then it is unlikely that Mr.

...If you are looking for a bombastic, colorful commentary on politics and the society at large this is a gem.
Savage is doomed to be assaulted by the left for his views on immigration, though it is exactly his view of America that immigrants are enticed by. Understanding these plain-spoken truths requires the reader to abandon years of PC brainwashing, and political partisanship. Regardless of your political orientation, this book is an excellent reminder of what has been lost in America to politics in the last 30 years, and a common-sense roadmap for rebuilding national unity and culture.

I listen to the Savage Nation every day and love every minute of it. While I don't agree with much of what Mr. Savage says, I respect his edge and the thorough nature of his opinions. He can explain why he wants to racially profile to the break of dawn - it's not just blind obedience to some right-wing objective. He's not racist, he's real.

Great book slamming the illiberal left wing propaganda machine. Exposes the hypocracy and illuminates the modus operandi of the Democrats, ACLU and other radical left-wing front groups. Trashes the "Republicrats" and "Democans" for failing to secure our borders resulting in a flood of undocumented aliens, some who want to kill us, and others who just want free education, welfare, food stamps, SSI and medicare. Very easy reading book with interesting stories and antidotes. Hard book to put down. That other negative review is completely wrong!

Michael Savage is one of the few voices of reason in the media today. He is the near perfect antidote for the far too liberal media controlled by America haters with their ACLU agendas. You will obviously disagree with the contents of this book if you are caught up in the political correctness run rampant in this country, if you are anti-family, if you are anti-Judeo/Christian, if you have lost your sense of morality which dominated this country 20-40 years ago, if you are cheering for the terrorists and their beliefs who are threatening America. Disturbing trends are analyzed in this book that CNN/ABC/NBC/CBS will never address as honestly and accurately. Michael Savage is one of the few persons in the media who have the personality, intellect, and passion to get the message out to so many of us (who are actually in the great majority of this country) who cannot hear it anywhere else.

Liberals like to insist that wealth be shared so that those on the bottom don't revolt. You'd think that the same reasoning would apply to communication networks. Liberals control the news media, the entertainment industry, academia and all sources of "respectable" public opinion, and this control trumps the occasional conservative political victories and endures through them, rendering them unavailing. If liberals don't quite control Big Business, they've still hijacked it and give it directions.
Yet liberals aren't as eager to share control of communication networks as they are to have others share wealth. Talk radio might be the only thing that liberals DON'T control so they have to try to destroy or belittle what they cannot replicate. You wouldn't expect the only format in which silenced people can express themselves to always be pretty, and conservative talk radio isn't, so liberals like to mock the ugly ducklings that they themselves created.
Michael Weiner (aka "Michael Savage") is one of the ugly ducklings. Anyone familiar with his talk show knows that Savage is a primal scream against liberal dominion elsewhere, and this book, "The Savage Nation" is named after it. You really have to admire this man's courage. It must take a lot of guts for the most conservative talk show radio host in the country to live and work in the most leftist metropolis in the country, the San Francisco Bay Area. When one thinks about how frequently compassionate liberal demonstrators erupt into organized violence, with the Orwellian motive of combatting "hate", and go unpunished for same, it is a wonder that Savage is still alive. Truly.
Virtually everything he says is true. You've got to cheer an angry man who says, "Women are afraid of angry men.
