it was ok
bookshelves: non-fiction

If you're looking for an intellectually rigorous articulation of conservative ideals, this is not your book. I just kept thinking that if the young recipient of D'Souza's letters actually assumed the same glib, arrogant posture, he probably got his clock cleaned by the first quick-thinking liberal he met. D'Souza certainly makes a number of strong points, but too many times he falls into a pattern of setting up straw men and then demolishing them for easy applause.
