Reviews appear to reflect political bias instead of quality. If you believe in small gov't', capitalism and the constitution as written you will like the book. If you believe in large gov't, socialism, PC, an the constitution as a work in progress you will dislike it. When he presents facts they are not disputible . His opinions are subject to controversy depending on your own philosophys. I'm not talking right or wrong here: just the way it is. I do wonder if the really negative views actually read the book however.

A Little Too Pithy

A good book as far as it goes. However, the entire book is 102 pages from front to back. Remove the front and back matter and the book length is around 90 pages. You want to pay $11 bucks for 90 pages, go ahead.

    Entertaining; A quick read

    Bill's latest book is a more or less review of his earlier thoughts and opinions. Although it was entertaining and easy to read, I really didn't see any new insights or though-provoking ideas. I'm sure his overall popularity is what has made this book a best seller.
