This is a journey through the mind of the American Progressive, Leftist, Lefty, Lib, Liberal through a cartoon pictorial of his and her deeds, statements, proclamations and actions. This is strictly the politics and social stands of Liberals in the United States presented using their own words and deeds.
We travel through the world of American Liberals peering in on their social fabric. They love gatherings. They love proclamations and marches. They use Facebook, Email, Text Messaging and Twitter until the power grids collapse, allowing their getting together in vast crowds and shouting about whatever bothers them at the time.
Of course, no look at Liberal life can be complete without two erudite Conservatives nestled comfortably in the lower corner of the frame commenting on the events unfolding in the cartoon. Their poignant and sometimes hard-nosed observations add the punch this book needs.
Though this book shines a light on the political and social attitudes of liberals, rather than throwing accusations and attacks the purpose is to give liberals a mirror to reflect who they are in order for them to take action for their own benefit.
This book also gives conservatives a properly focused view of liberals, away from the caustic attacks that normally typifies the public positions conservatives often take. But no doubt there is much in this book for the Conservative to relish and love.
The "Guide to the American Liberal" is a one-of-a-kind approach and is spiked heavily with humor. This is a book that should have a place on the living room coffee table of anyone interested in politics in America - whether you are a Liberal or a Conservative.

Liberals have often been accused of not having a sense of humor. This book should test this theory to the max. The conservatives attack liberals with accusations of their being treasonous, un-American and a variety of other vicious attacks. Here Sal Iver takes the liberals on using their own statements, situations and positions. What better way to criticize than through the truth? Yes, there are red meat pages for conservatives scattered through the book, but they are obvious and are only a tiny portion of the some 170 pages this book contains. Despite the red meat Sal Iver apparently does not have a partisan stance because he also authorized a rather scathing attack on conservatives - "102 Uses for the American Conservative," also sold through Barnes and Noble. For the centrist at heart both of these books offer a smart look at American politics. My main complaint is the cartooning is not up to a high standard, but it is quite passable and clearly makes the points. I deducted a star for this complaint.
