What People are Saying About This

Mark Shields

"A must-have for everyone who seeks to understand the spirit of America and, most especially, our politics: you'll learn why an easy question is a 'softball,' a tricky one, a 'curve ball,' and why sometimes we may have to 'play hardball.' We want leaders who 'can step up to the plate,' free of 'screwball' ideas from 'out of left field.' You will learn from this book and you will treasure this book, just as I have. It is an invaluable American thesaurus."

If you still like to get lost in an actual book, where one lookup can lead you down any number of fascinating trails, this one's lurking to capture you. Warning: Don't open if you're on a tight schedule unless your self-discipline is reliable.
