    Surprising Results - Balanced and Factual

    This book was a quick read and really shows who gives and how and why. I was surprised at the results and that they are presented using FACTS -- which is what I really love in a non-fiction book. You won't be disappoointed, especially if you are someone who believes in giving and volunteering to make the world a better place.

    Who's really compassionate? Look no further.

    This book should be read by both conservatives and liberals, especially the latter. Brooks consolidates years of his own and others' research on the issue of whether liberals or conservatives are more compassionate. The answer did not surprise me but it will others, especially liberals who get very uncomfortable when they're on the short end of overwhelming statistical analyses that refute their claims. In spite of the author being like myself an academic and the emphasis on data analysis, it is a highly readable book. This book shows beyond much doubt that conservatives are compassionate, liberals are greedy, and the religious beliefs of the former and the secularism of the latter are the primary explanations. This is truly one of the great books of its kind of the last five years, but not surprisingly has gotten far too little attention in the press (duh). Liberals, if you read this book and aren't ashamed, you don't have a pulse.
