really liked it

A collection of Krauthammer's essays over the years. I never paid any attention to Krauthammer through the years, but figured I would take a gamble based on reviews and popularity. He broke the essays into four categories: personal, political, historical and global. He covers a wide variety of topics. He definitely got me fired up about how big government has become, how out of control taxation is and how government is impeding in the free market.

It is worth nothing that for a stretch in the book it seemed to take a side alley surrounding Israel. I can not be coherent on that topic with someone that approaches it with blind vigor based on religious belief. So that was significant turn off for me.

If you like politics and want to cover a few decades with great content. This is an easy read.
