I dont know if he is supporting his agenda, or not. I thought some of his claims were new at least to me. For example, i never thought about the government having a monopoly on education. So, for that i give it four stars.

I came upon this book by Stossel while looking for a book in a different subject area; I'm very glad I did. I can see that must of the reviews here are objective and accurate, but I don't get some of them at all (I really think the negative reviews are from people that became angry with Stossel's subjects and points made in the book). While I didn't agree with everything in this book, it was very good and I couldn't wait to pick it up and read it. In other reviews I have read of this book people say that these are Stossel's opinions; the things is in many instances in the book he gives experts and others that are well versed on the topics to make their case for what is the truth- and most of them fail miserably. And it takes a lot of guts in my opinion for Stossel to call out the media; an establishment he has built his career on, but is not afraid to expose their inaccurate and over-hyped reporting (And he even states that he was guilty of it himself and just didn't no any better). I found this book to be very objective. And time and again Stossel backs up his statements with verifiable data and evidence; kind of hard to argue or refute factual data that is available to everyone if they would take the time to search/research it like Stossel did. Some of this book will really irk you, and with some of it you will be laughing pretty hard- I did (Especially the many stories references to politicians and lawyers:).Was this review helpful?

Right or wrong, this book was worth the price.
I often disagree with Stossel's conclusions in his stories and even some in this book, but hands down this was a very entertaining read and well worth the price.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
