If I were to go on about everything that is right with this book, it would be a book in itself! Larry Elder gets it. His views are not just about race, gender, and politics, but about what is RIGHT! He does not defame either the Republicans or the Democrats, he points out where the strengths and weaknesses are on both sides, which is valid and fair, and when either side has views or claims that are flat out wrong and uninformed he calls it. How anyone can argue with this man, I have no idea. He just makes sense. Elder is definitely a positive force not only for the black community, but for ALL humanity. It's a shame that more people do not share (or in some cases even try to understand) his views, because the world would be a better place. Although certain individuals claim to disagree with Larry Elder or simply ignore him, one cannot help but feel that those people are wrong or at least have flawed views and know it, as they do not dare engage in debate with Mr. Elder--even just between the two of them (i.e. Congresswoman Maxine Waters)! He covers issues from gun control to abortion to the war in Iraq with hard core facts and how to fix the problems that exist regarding these issues. I chose to write school papers on abortion and gun control; I only wish I had had this book as a source when I was in college! I am going to Larry Elder's book signing this weekend and I cannot wait to meet him. I definitely urge everyone who is an American to read this book--these are issues that affect our lives. I will definitely read 'The Ten Things You Can't Say In America' next. An eye opener.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Larry Elder is one of my role models. No, I am not black myself, but Elder's words go beyond race. He has incredbile wit and sarcasm. A fine read no matter what your politcal views are.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
