Her book offers a rare yet hard-hitting glimpse of libertarian from the often-ignored "left" side of the spectrum. As many libertarian books are written from the "conservative" side, Mary Ruwart's book addresses it from the social and human side, showing real world examples of how the free market can solve problems much more effectively than government can. This would be a great primer for a liberal friend or family member who desperately needs a dose of liberty and freedom!
I don't agree with everything she suggests, but this book should open your eyes to solutions never proposed by the left or the right.
If you like a lot of what conservatives / the "Tea Party" / etc. talk about but never seem to implement in terms of smaller government, read this book. You'll immediately buy copies for friends and they will thank you.
I loaned the book to my 79-year-old stepdad, a stauch conservative and WW-II vet who is retired US Air Force. He gave it back, apologizing that he had underlined and highlighted many passages throughout the book -- and when I told him to please, keep that copy as a gift and I'd get myself a new one, he was so grateful that I was truly astounded (in a good way).
This book reaches anyone from teens to retired war veterans, as it describes things in layperson's terminology. It's audience is the "regular" citizen / voter rather than being aimed at politicos.
Can't recommend this highly enough for anyone who wants to learn what libertarian philosophies truly are.
I won't give the book away because I think you should read it. I dare you!
