"Jonah Goldberg is the voice of the post-Reagan conservative generation."
(-JOHN PODHORETZ, editor, Commentary magazine)
"Goldberg draws on both the Great Books and popular culture to rip apart the commandments of the modern therapeutic society. Behind all the feel-good, come-together mush, Goldberg finds the age-old driving forces-power, profit, and plain old ignorance. The dissection of these feel-good assumptions is informal and light, but the conclusions are deadly serious-and chilling."
(-VICTOR DAVIS HANSON, senior fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University)
"What can one say to the self-proclaimed 'independent' who never has nor ever will vote other than Democratic; or to the wise soul suggesting, of any conflict at all, "the truth must lie somewhere in between"? Mr. Goldberg reminds us that one must stand up and demand of the muddled and supine either an absolute declaration of their principles and acknowledgment of the results of actions having flowed therefrom or a straightforward admission of their intransigence in refusing a concise reply."
(-DAVID MAMET, bestselling author of The Secret Knowledge)
"Whether you love or hate what he has to say, you've got to love the way Jonah Goldberg says it."
(-MARCO RUBIO, U.S. Senator, Florida)
"The puncturing of pretensions and disruption of lazy thinking are extra base hits in journalism. Doing so with humor and originality on every page qualifies Goldberg's work as a grand slam."
(-MITCH DANIELS, Governor of Indiana; author of Keeping the Republic)
"Straw man down! In the PC prison yard of accepted political thought, Jonah Goldberg has just shivved progressivism. Bold, brilliant, and bursting with humor, every page of The Tyranny of Clichés is right on the money. If you thought Liberal Fascism was good, wait till you read The Tyranny of Clichés --it is fantastic!"
(-BRAD THOR, bestselling author of Full Black)
"Everyone says 'think for yourself' but very few people do. In The Tyranny of Clichés, Jonah Goldberg reveals how we've become trapped by ideas we think we understand but don't. A must read."
(-VINCE VAUGHN, actor and producer)
