MUZZLED by Michael A. Smerconish

First off, my friend Chip (and the guy I call my brother) would probably be surprised I even read this book. We tend to look at the world from opposites sides of the aisle. Anyway, I found this book – and I thought it looked interesting. I try to read one non-fiction book every couple of weeks to keep my feet fully planted in reality.

Michael brings up some interesting points, however he's pretty conservative and some of this book was mildly offensive to me (which is ironic if you actually read the whole thing). I did enjoy his refreshing perspective on some issues, but some of it was just ridiculously over the top. I thought the last chapter was laughable. If he really wrote that letter to his son, it just goes to show what a douchebag he is.

Not my cup of tea, but it's definitely a point of view that I never hear.

Never had heard Smerconish on the radio. Wasn't real sure who he was. He has did a lot of research on this book. Has very short chapters dealing with a topic and gives his views on it. Such as giving trophies now to kids for anything and everything including just participating or the intellectual design theory. It's a mostly conversative view book just warning you, but it's interesting. I enjoy the different topics and it got me thinking about how I felt about them.

Although the philosophy rang true, i was tired of the same old story, over and over again with no solution or no remedy.

If you listen to his radio show in Philadelphia you already know just about everything he writes about in this book.

Not bad. Some of his examples are a little slow reading but he makes so very intersting points.

I am not a Republican, but this book, written by a Republican, is actually a really good read. Kudos to Michael Smerconish for voting Democrate this election!

Sad but true commentary on the downward spiral our society is experiencing in regards to "socially accepted behavior."

I like the overall point that the author was trying to make. But it lost my attention pretty quick. Kinda hard to finish.
