Format: Hardcover
When people think conservative talk radio, they immediately think of Rush Limbaugh. The next thought that springs to mind is racist, evil, cold-hearted republicans. Well all of that is about to change with this book.
What Boortz conveys in this book is a simple, common sense approach to the differences between liberals and conservatives. Boortz spells out how the public has been mislead for so long and how the media aids in this game.
You'll see a clear picture of why we do not live in a democracy. You'll understand why social programs have perpetuated themselves for so long. You'll even understand how and why taxes are collected.
In the 166 pages of this book you will begin to understand what separates the liberal left from the conservative right. You can't lose by spending the [money] and by the way Neal is a Libertarian not a Republican, which makes the book all the better to read!

Format: Hardcover
This book should be required reading for every American- It serves so many wonderful purposes: Learn what makes Liberals tick and how to diffuse such nastly little bombs! Learn the truth behind America's most popular Liberal myths! It doesn't quite slice-and-dice, but it does give the reader a good introduction into Liberal and Conservative thought.
Boortz starts with the most concise, clear explanation of the difference between liberals and conservatives I have yet to find anywhere. Though unfortunately short, it does manage to give you an excellent insight into the mindset of each group.
From there he proceeds to debunk classical liberal myths left-and-right, and offer up to the reader several suggestions on how to diffuse Liberal arguments without the slightest effort. Probably the best part of the book is a chapter in which he dictates his ideal college commencement speech to the reader. If only all graduates could listen to this thing, it's a perfect summary of Boortz's political thought, and better, a perfect lesson on why not to become a Liberal.
He tosses in a lot of humor and factual examples to accentuate and enforce his point, it's quite an easy and enjoyable read actually. And it's message is very powerful- if every Liberal were to read this book, i firmly believe their species would die out. It's a book they'll never read though, I'm afraid.. no pictures. One of the most efficient books I've ever read, in terms of strength of argument to shortness of length. You could read it in a couple of hours, but enjoy it's lessons for a lifetime. Bravo, Neal, bravo.

Format: Paperback
This book is for those who love entertainment. Boortz vents his frustration with liberals in the book like he does on his radio shows. For those who listen to Boortz on talk radio, the book is a compilation of his views which he has expressed on his talk show. His commencement speech is the best. The only criticism I have is he seems to be fine with conservatives and Republicans. As a Libertarian, he needs to express his criticism with Republicans as well since both mainstream parties are corrupt.

Everyone should read this book even if you are liberal, conservative or other. This book will make you mad for sure - but in a good way. It will challenge what you think are your set of beliefs about how this country should be run. If you do not read this book, you are making a BIG mistake.

Format: Hardcover
I once considered myself a liberal, until I realized what it was all about. Boortz's book is right on the money and true to life examples illustrate the idiocy of liberal logic (or illogic). As a former slacker, I once waited for the government to carry me, thought I would "fall into success" or win "life's lottery". I was once a bystander in the political process, content to let government run itself. The "Terrible Turth" was a real eye opener. It's the perfect kick in the rear for anyone who's afraid of being involved in politics or content to let liberals overrun our freedoms. Boortz's book puts everything into perspective. It's informative, funny, and downright inspiring. It's not the wealthy "I'm-better-than-you are" Republicans bashing Democrats or the partisan finger-pointing I thought it would be. It's just the truth.

Format: Hardcover
Before discovering Neal Boortz, I leaned too far to the left even to be classified as "liberal" in any sense. What makes Boortz's message stick is a level-headed objectiveness and a philosophy based upon hard facts rather than generalizations or "spin". As I am not a fan of the Rush Limbaugh style of blustery hoopla, I was struck by the fact that Boortz employs no gimmicks or chanting minions in getting his message across; instead of just attempting to elicit an emotional reaction (a common tool of both liberals AND conservatives who haven't done their homework), he has taken the time to present the reader with genuine information based upon years of extensive and non-partisan research.
As an author, Neal Boortz's style is as sardonic, engaging, and informative as his radio persona; whether you agree with him or not, it's tough not to listen. He is never dull or obtuse, and never leaves any stone unturned. And while he has written this book in a highly witty and accessible style, it is never condescending. One gets the sense that he does not underestimate the intelligence level of the general population. Pundits and sociologists could learn a lot from his approach.
The specifics which he has uncovered will astound you. ....
And if he still doesn't get through to you, don't put it down without at least reading the allegory in the last chapter; it gives the whole work a better finish than a fine wine.
