Hate to be the downer in the crowd, but listening to this guy on the radio is painful. Everyone is out to get him and no one understands his "genius". He has guests on who are sypathetic to his point of view and then two days later he is trashing them because of one ridiculous reason or another.
This book is written without any references. Read an Ann Coulter book. She references everything and backs up her assertions. Dr. Savage rants page after page and it is mostly, but not all, hyperbole and exaggeration. His thoughts are scattered and the book is difficult to believe. Entertaining? Yes. Thoughtful? You be the judge. Useful for debating the other side? NO. Not even close.
An opinionated man with massive ego and contempt for any that disagree. He can be insightful, but even when he does have a point it is lost because of his hatred of the left. I read it to see if his written reasoning was any clearer than his oratory. Nope.
How many people (apart from a terminator) want to be pictured wearing sunglasses?
The book is valuable to those of the left or right who want to see just what a rabble-rouser looks like. But don't take his words to heart.
A radical, YES. Some hard reading? YES! Some things we need to hear and think about? YES!
I am tearing through this book. It is laughably scary, meaning, his sarcasm makes me laugh out loud, the whole while he is speaking the grim truth. With the 2008 election campaigns heating up, he is hitting the mark every time. This book should be required reading for anyone intending to vote!
Savagely stupid, that is! I'm a conservative myself and I hate this guy for making us all look like close-minded fools.
I didn't even read it because I personally disagree with just about everything the man says (I got the book for free), but if you are really conservative you will probably like it, and if you are liberal you might get a laugh out of it- or get really riled up...
