Larry Elder is a libertarian, but his opinions aren't what's important about this book. What's important is the way he digs down to the source of misinformation that's been strewn about. Many of the things commonly believed in America are based on studies carefully constructed to mislead the public. Mr. Elder presents the way data has been skewed by the special interests, blowing it out of the water for those who have minds open enough to reevaluate the "common knowledge" that's been spewed by the media. Give it a read, then argue with it if you can.
