In a nutshell, the perfect guide for how progressives and liberals should act. Only request this book if you plan on passing it along after you've read it. Lakoff's message must be spread far and wide.

Demystifies how we got here - a careful, deliberate use of language on the part of the right to make dissent, even rational thought, quite difficult.

The most lucid laying out of the differences between conservatives and progressives (which is why I stopped half way through - I didn't want the lucidity to be sullied). I'm not sure of his dichotomy of strict father/nurturing parent can explain everything, but it does enough.
