This book is recommended for fans of history and political science.
Sandra Kirkland
His account of the woeful state of public education in America is particularly compelling- a chilling indictment of liberal social policy run amuck!
Neal J. Seidl
While listening to Bennett read his own book, I noted things I hadn't noticed when reading it myself.

This book is an excellent detail looking into today's educational value system. Being from a small town you might miss many of the problems in inner-cities that either go unnoticed or don't want any help and think they are doing things the right way. This is just a quality book from a quality writer.

One of the best books telling "how it is". While scary in context, it gives hope that good old fashioned values still exist in high places. I only wish Mr. Bennett could write an "update" chapter following up on the effect of the 90's. I highly recommend this book for those wishing to be more informed

Format: Paperback
This book is absolutely one of the best contemporary conservative reads. Dr. Bennett's explanation of his doings as Education secretary are wonderful and inspiring. I particularily enjoyed his look at K-12 education and the need for evolution from the current education policy standstill. The one knock I will give the book is its lack of depth on the issue od drugs. Generally, I am solidly behind Dr. Bennett on the drug issue, and I have supported him for some time. However, the complexity of the "drug war" in the '80s and early '90s led by him needs to be far better examined, explained and explored. I suppose that issue- from Bennett's perspective- could consume more than one entire book of Kissingeresque size, but I still would've like to have seen a more thorough debriefing of Bennett's experiences in this volume. All in all, I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone. I it is a *MUST READ* for contemporary conservatives.

Bill Bennett, former NEH Chairman, Secretary of Education, and Drug Czar takes on many important cultural issues. He writes with passion and great credibility, for example while Secretary of Education, Bennett not only visited but TAUGHT in over 100 schools around the country. His account of the woeful state of public education in America is particularly compelling- a chilling indictment of liberal social policy run amuck!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Though an older book, the principles William Bennett puts forth are still as true as ever. Bennett hits hard at the problems that have plagued our country for decades and he puts forth solutions to them. An excellent book and one that I would like my children and grandchildren to read one day. Ben Radin

This book should be read by every young American. A truly remarkable look at the American society, from education to abortion to drugs, Mr. Bennett's well rounded and conservative approach is a breath of fresh air.
