It's definitely a book for those who believe in a Constitutional government. If you're a person who believes government is the answer, there's probably little you'd like about it.

I strongly disagree with one of the other reviewers who posted here. She doesn't get it. But what she took insult at showed me I shouldn't be surprised. Bill's a hardcore patriot, and is not ashamed of calling America the greatest country in the history of the world (neither am I).

If you are looking for some well put to

I was very impressed by Bill Whittle's knowledge of military history. That is the only thing about this collection of essays that impressed me.

Brilliant! An amazing read. Prepare to be inspired, challenged, moved, enraged, and enthralled by the vision of Bill Whittle's America. His take-no-prisoners, make-no-apologies approach for what America is and is not (and should and should not be) is as refreshing as it is erudite.

This, my friends, is an essayist! Whenever I think that I might start writing, I pick up this book, open it to any page and start reading. Then I quietly put my pen down. This 'regular guy' writes with the skill of any of the giants in America's audacious and storied history.

Simply the best-written, clearest reminder of what it means to be an American. Each chapter is a self-contained essay, usually starting from a personal anecdote and eventually tying each theme together in a wonderful package. Check some of them out at www.ejectejecteject.com.
