Review quote

“A no-holds-barred exegesis on the naked cynicism of conservatism in America.”—"Kirkus Reviews", starred review“Written with barbed wit and finely controlled anger, he skewers such juicy targets as libertarian strategist Grover Norquist and Michelle Malkin.”—"Publishers Weekly", starred review "Glorious… Often brilliant… Frank’s gloom is leavened by an eye for the unexpected and the absurd."—"Los Angeles Times" “Well-researched and witty… Provides a powerful liberal antidote to the high-volume rantings of Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coulter and Fox News.”—"Seattle Post-Intelligencer""Frank’s gifts as a social observer are on display… His analysis of why there are so many libertarian think tanks in a country with so few libertarians is dead on. In Thomas Frank, the American left has found its own Juvenal."—"The New York Times Book Review""Frank offers one damning anecdote
