However, for all of the wonderful things associated with this book, it isn’t without flaws. When I stopped being a libertarian, one of the reasons was because I realized that a lot of libertarian sources I listen to are biased (Ron Paul Liberty Report, Julie Borowski, various libertarian websites, CATO, Reason, etc.) and Shapiro is no different. There are many claims in this book that are exaggerated (e.g the claim that liberals are not patriotic). There are many liberals and lefties I know that are very patriotic and love this country. The section on “anti-semitic bullies” was a section that I disagreed with wholeheartedly.
All in all, this is an excellent book that I still cannot recommend enough- 9.3/10
Tired of being called a racist because you want voter ID laws, read the book. Tired of being called a racist because you did not like Obama's policies, read the book. If you are tired of being bullied into being quite and not voicing your beliefs, give this book a read.
With this review in mind, I would like to point out that chapter 2 "Anti-patriotic bullies" and chapter 3 "race bullies" are absolutely amazing. It is only in the latter half of the book that it really starts going down hill.
The book is a great (recent)history lesson about the left and how their fear tactics grip different areas of American culture. With great examples and well-placed points exposing the left's idiocy, the only real downsides of the novel fail to account for are giving numerous examples of how the average American can 'punch back', which I think would have really made the book even that much better.

I was hoping for something with a little more depth, but if you are looking for facts and hidden narratives, with a slightly childish to and fro between the left and right, then it might suit you.
