Neal brings his on-air personality to the page in this book, and he doesn't mince words or worry about offending anyone. Neal gives his views on government, abortion, religion, individuality, government schools, and many other topics. The book is also sprinkled with amusing emails from listeners (or former listeners, as many claim in their emails that "I'm not going to listen to you anymore"). This book is a light, easy read - not deep political philosophy - but Neal's insight still shows throughout the book.
Whether you're a huge fan of Boortz or an occasional listener, whether you disagree with him or agree with him, whether you take him seriously or just like to laugh at his antics, this book is an easy and entertaining look into the mind of Neal Boortz and would make a good read for anyone who has any interest in current politics and has enough of a sense of humor to enjoy Boortz's style.
If there's one thing I hate more than anything else it's feeling like someone's lackey, but I can't believe how much I jive with Boortz on almost every single issue. Anyone that accuses him of being a republican or conservative lap dog hasn't read the book, as he starts off trashing the religious right wing of the republican party.
I think for a lot of people there will be plenty of food for thought, even if you disagree with what he writes. His ideas on voting and schools are thought provoking, not "hate" speech. Sure, he's going to infuriate a lot of people, but only those who are defenseless against his accusations.
Does he get everything right? No, I don't think so. Is it sometimes misleading? Sure... name one political book that isn't. Is it all good food for thought? Definately.
The chapter about what he'd do if he were president is probably the most thought provoking of the book. Too bad he left it for last, as a lot of people that can't stand personal freedoms, along with the personal responsibility they require, won't make it to the end; but it's a good summary of how he feels politics has gone wrong over the last century.
His views on the 17th and 10th amendments are extremely important to consider, and definately things that should be discussed in our schools. As it is, the whole constitution seems to be blown over in public schools, with dumb (and innacurate) summaries, as he points out with at least one specific example.
Sort of a "guide to Boortz" if you're already a fan. A wakeup call to everyone who thinks Boortz is anybody's lackey, and a real eye opener for anyone that doesn't really understand the true concept of individual liberty and freedom.
