    Incredible and Eye Opening

    Okay, I am a republican, so yes, I am bias towards this book. The In depth transformation from a liberal to a moderate (some would say hard core) is a interesting and very, very funny book.

    Explains both sides

    As a life-long conservative, I've often accepted my beliefs without question. However, this thoughtful and fascinating book helps explain the merits of both liberalism and conservatism, while pointing out where each has gone awry. Stein, who is pro-choice, explains both sides of that issue with incredible tact, and I believe it will help foster understanding on both sides. I personally learned much about liberalism and consider myself more politically informed than before reading it.

    Courageous Straight Talk

    Mr. Stein could not have aided his career by publishing such a scathing rebuke of the liberal establishment. This fact makes what is already an illuminating book all the more impressive. His anecdotes are timely and his political analysis is evenhanded, although I doubt liberal readers will think so. Nevertheless, they would learn something by reading this book.

    What a fantastic book...Happened to catch Mr.Stein being interviewed on Booknotes with Brian Lamb...Thought I would pick up the book..After reading it, I bought 3 more copies and mailed it to my liberal friends..Even from them, the response has been outstanding...They had to face the fact that they are indeed politically correct people without having given it much thought..They are now much more open to the conservative viewpoint, unlike most liberals..Thank you Mr. Stein ....

    Badge of Courage

    Former liberal journalist Harry Stein's journey from being a 70's liberal to a 90's conservative is, in reality, a study of what could be better described as a journey to the center. When Stein's book was released in June 2000, he was interviewed by Brian Lamb on C-Span's Booknotes. The interview was aired again on August 20, 2000. Stein is a fascinating person whose liberating transformation was stimulated by heavy doses of family and common sense. His book should be required reading for liberals and conservatives whose minds have not been slammed shut from radical infections. As expected, the shallow-minded liberal press and condescending book reviewers took 'offended aim' at Stein's book and spewed their all-too-familiar liberal venom at his truths. Therefore, Stein's book can easily be viewed by independent thinkers as a badge of courage and the silly, terrorist, reviews as medals of honor.

    It's About Time - Welcome!

    This is a funny and comical depiction of the natural tendency of all responsible men to give up the 'any goes' liberal mantra for the very intuitive, natural way that things really are. Liberals are tolerant of every diversity, except diversity of thought. I welcome you to the perceived Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy (although we don't have any meetings). An excellent book.
