I like my pragmatists logical and my centrists firmly planted in the center, but you won't find that here. I've been listening to Ronn since he came to SF decades ago when I was a kid. I used to love listening to him, but he's changed since his failed attempt to break into the LA radio scene. He's openly moved from being a liberal to a 'centrist' - a term which is apparently simply a euphemism for 'conservative apologist'. And his particular brand of 'reason' comprises a pseudo-pragmatic approach to politics that often ignores important facts in an attempt to simplify difficult issues. I find this naive blindness to political realities and his overemotional approach to problem analysis unpalatable, especially given how good Ronn used to be and how experienced a veteran talk show host like him ought to be. The book is pretty much just more of the same, if not more vacuous. If you are unsure that you will like the book, tune into his radio show on the air or on the Internet. Listen for a while to one of his political segments, and you won't even need to buy the book whether or not you like his show. It's basically a live version of the book.
Owens gives a very thought-provoking, engrossing, inately readable dissertation on why the left and right advocates, talking heads, etc. simply have it wrong on the American people's mindset. Owens, like his talk-show monologues, keeps to his moderate opinions that are neither wildly right or left, conservative or ultra liberal. He's hit the mark with this much-needed book!
