Right from the Heart: The ABC's of Reality in America

Overview

Many believe that conservatives are ruled by facts and logic and liberals by emotions.

Valentine provides a thoughtful, conservative viewpoint on a wide range of today's hottest issues from A to Z, including: guns, global warming, AIDS, abortion, drugs, education, political correctness, entrepreneurs, the wisdom of Ronald Reagan, and a host of others.

Overview

Many believe that conservatives are ruled by facts and logic and liberals by emotions. There's no better example of that than popular radio talk-show host Phil Valentine's Right from the Heart: The ABC's of Reality in America. Valentine provides a thoughtful, conservative viewpoint on a wide range of today's hottest issues from A to Z, including: guns, global warming, AIDS, abortion, drugs, education, political correctness, entrepreneurs, the wisdom of Ronald Reagan, and a host of others. But the knowledge he imparts is more than just information -- it's ammunition that can be used to pierce the smokescreen and debunk the arguments of the Left. Many disagreements between liberals and conservatives degenerate into name-calling and unsubstantiated claims. Right from the Heart distills those raw emotions and distracting controversies into a cohesive argument for conservative principles and values that covers the full array of today's fiscal and social issues in a manner that is comprehensive without being overwhelming. This book will inform you, make you laugh, and possibly enrage you. But if it makes you think, then the author has done his job.

    Sean Hannity was right!

    I just read Phil Valentine's book, 'Right From The Heart,' and I must agree with Sean Hannity. It's one of the most important pieces of conservative work in recent memory. No. It's THE most important piece of conservative work in recent memory. Valentine goes through the alphabet covering everything from AIDS to Zero Tolerance and nails it on every subject. It's extremely well written and easy to read with no chapter over 10 pages. He doesn't bog you down with policy wonk talk. Every subject you can imagine is covered with plain talk, humor and loads of facts to debunk any liberal argument on any subject. Those of you who are conservative MUST read this and get it into as many hands as possible. If everybody read this book there'd be no more debate. Slam dunk. End of discussion. If liberals have the guts to read this book they'll never be the same again. Valentine is not only a rising star in the talk radio world, he's a rising superstar in the literary world. I can't wait for his next book!
