"As an introduction to a way of looking at the world, "No, They Can't" is superb. In about 300 highly readable pages, Mr. Stossel whips through countless topics, explaining for each why libertarians think the government does more harm than good." --"The Washington Times"
"Excellent..."No They Can't "shed[s] light on how nonsensical government...is way beyond what our constitution allows." --Sarah Palin
"I love "No They Can't". This book sends a message that people need to read."--Senator Mike Lee
"Is there anything for a reader already on the capitalist side to learn from yet another one of these books? Yes there is." --Future of Capitalism
"One of the nation's most recognized advocates of free-markets and individualism, Stossel argues that we have to become reality-based skeptics and embrace facts rather than feel-good rhetoric and politically popular policies that simply don't work."--David Harsanyi, "Human Events"

The only stretch argument he made in the entire book was that the govt shouldn't have mandated seatbelts. I get what he is saying that either A) seatbelts were already being installed by manufacturers and didn't need government oversight, and B) that potentially drivers do dumber things like go faster/more reckless if they think they are protected by seatbelts. However, mandating seatbelts costs the govt virtually nothing and is such a no-brainer in savings lives -- maybe our hindsight is 20/20 though, as I don't know the full history of seatbelt development and how the law was enacted. I wish he would have just left those few pages out of the book.
"No, They can't" But We, the people, do... if We pay a little attention, read books like this, and think a little about the realities he exposes. GOOD READING
