I liked it very much. Although it is editorial opinion columns he wrote in the mid '90's they were still apropos to today. Makes on wonder--have we plateaued as a civilization in America, and are now getting ready to head downwards? According to most of the examples he stated in his columns then, and that apply today, it appears so. It appears that personal responsibility is out, along with charity to others less fortunate, replaced with government "care" and "charity".

A common sense explanation of how too much government infringes upon our liberty and makes our society weaker. This book is a collection of columns written by Walter E. Williams that highlight arguments for limited government and cover a wide array of topics. He explains his arguments clearly with examples that are easy to understand and underscore his point. This is a fantastic book; highly recommended.
If you've ever heard Walter E. Williams subsititute for Rush Limbaugh, you'll understand what 'common sense intellecutalism' is. A collection of some of Walter's columns - all excellent.
I really like this guy! Logic and reason at its best.
Nice collection of articles.
