This book has a lot of interesting information but in relation to the title seems to simplify and/or overlook some of the variables that divide people on politics. Needless to say, it is a very complex subject and the author does make a genuine effort to analyze the issues but some of the suggestions do not factor in some important variables. The book covers why the political right has been more likely to win in the last 30 years; it would have been interesting if the author had applied the same principles or explained how it has changed since the political left won in the 1920's.
