Whether its a teenager whose eyes you want to open, a disillusioned independent wondering if he can afford to dabble in Democrats, or somebody who has ignored politics but thinks we are on the wrong path, this book works as a perfect way to cut to the chase. It will even entertain those already on board with reminders of how conservatism isn't just a political ideology, it's a way of living your life. It reminds us of all the virtues and morals and ethics that combined inform, or ought to inform, all of our decisions.
I bet you can think of three or four people who could benefit from a book like this. It has a light touch, is not overly judgmental and could actually attract people to conservatism.
A great book !!!
1) they're generally misinformed and/or disinterested
2) it's written for they're social network world lifestyle; quick easy "pieces", easily digested
3) they are the future after all and it's a shame we might lose them to apathy.
This book does a nice job of explaining that conservatism and liberalism are life philosophies, different from and NOT always tied to Republicans and Democrats. This distinction is important, especially for the fore-mentioned age group.
I rate this and 8.5+/10. Lots of good information, sound concise observations and arguments and about 15% is actually brilliant.
If you're already a conservative and are having a little trouble answering your child's questions, spend the $10, tell them to read this and then sit down and have a talk with an "informed" person and help them.
If you're a liberal and believe the media portrayal of the big bad white rich religious conservative, spend the $10, and though you may not agree when you get to the end, at least you'll have a little better mainstream "everyman" perspective.
Jon takes the subject of conservatism and dilutes it down to everyday subjects..honor, racism, tough love, charity, unions, and lazy versus helpless to name just a few. He has no party affiliation...no angry diatribes...just common sense.
One of his favorite quotes is one by Eleanor Roosevelt...and now my favorite too....
"Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; and small minds discuss people". Jon discusses ideas.....he gives the reader a lot to think over especially if they are liberal and he still finds a lot of common ground. We really are not all that different .

I keep looking for a book to recommend to more liberal friends. One that lays out conservatism without bashing other view points. Read morePublished on March 4, 2013 by D. Kitchel
I enjoyed this book for many reasons, the most important being that Jon was able to put the conservative view point on most topics into an entertaining, yet educational format. Read morePublished on March 17, 2011 by BugnLoomom
Concise and to the point. Possibly the most important part of it is the analogies that put conservative philosophy into clear everyday perspective. Read morePublished on February 9, 2011 by Montana
My gut feeling tells me there are lots of folks across America that think they're liberals because of a strong opinion on a particular issue championed by liberals... Read morePublished on February 3, 2011 by Montana Sam
