it was amazing

This book is a god-send for all conservatives who find themselves living or working in a predominantly liberal environment - Manhattan, San Francisco, academia, journalism, social work, or a myriad other professions or locations where you have to learn how to hid your conservative political outlook. To those of us who are stuck in such places, the stories and anecdotes narrated in this book sound all too familiar, but we are grateful that someone has actually written a book about it. This gives an additional validation to our claims, and a useful reminder that however lonely or isolated we may feel, there are many others like us who are going through same or similar experiences. The book is witty and depressing at times, since it can't be too uplifting to know how much of animosity conservatives are subjected to just for expressing their opinions. The argument is often made that there are narrow-minded and hostile people on all sides of the political spectrum. However, it takes a particular kind of liberal to be discriminating and vicious in the name of openness, acceptance and love for the whole world. It is these particular types who are exposed in this book. The book is a page-turner and I for one am grateful that Harry Stein wrote it.
