I've always enjoyed Charles many appearances on Bill O'Reilly's show and upon finding out he had written a book I quickly secured a copy. The format covers over 30 years of Mr. Krauthammer's writings from the mid-80's to the present. It is an intellectual read that will push your mind but something I've always enjoyed about his writing in getting his readers to think outside the box. If you're a fan you'll enjoy. If you're a detractor, you may find yourself convinced otherwise as his arguments are compelling.

This guy has become his own biggest fan. He assumes that everybody needs his explanation of any issue, and he has no respect for an opposing opinion. I hope he writes no more books.

Although I did not read this entire book [I skimmed portions of it, I admit my stomach simply isn't that strong], it is obvious Krauthammer is still a complete whackjob! Always has been, always probably will remain so.

The first half of this book was engrossing as Krauthammer discourses on a wide range of topics. He is an incredibly intelligent individual and can convince even when having a different opinion. The second half was not as interesting to me due to its emphasis on foreign policy.
