"WOW WOW WOW. Scott Wagner is an engaging, articulate, and wise writer.

Politics are a detail in the story of what we call ideology. After a 6-year effort that involved 3 tours of the U.S., help from dozens of the world's top academic experts, and hundreds of interviews with conservatives, writer and researcher J.

Karry Walker, ultralash.com
"The chapters on personality helped so much with my conservative fiance. Politics was the biggest problem we had. Now I understand him much better, and we have far fewer arguments. - Beth P.
