I just finished reading this:
Now, before you judge me, know that I only paid $4 for it at Border's. I've never watched his show, and I think I've only listened to him on the radio once or twice, and it wasn't on purpose. I listen to a lot of talk radio when I drive, and I think I've stumbled across his show occasionally. All I've ever heard about him is what an asshole he is, and all of that business, although I personally never really had any opinion of him.
Part of the reason I bought the book was because a few weeks ago they had a bunch of them, and some Border's employee (who is soon to be out of a job) had posted on the sign below the books "He's the idiot!" When I saw that comment at the time, it annoyed the hell out of me, but the book wasn't cheap enough yet. Over the past week, the book is now cheap enough -- and there were only three left. So, I bought it.
I have to say, it wasn't a bad read, and I read it really fast. He disparages both the Democrats and the Republicans fairly equally, and I kind of agreed with a lot of what he has to say. (He claims to be a Libertarian -- I'm probably a Republican/Libertarian, so that wasn't too surprising.) The best part of the book is the very last chapter, where he goes through the entire Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I hadn't read either since I was in Constitutional Law class, and it was a nice reminder about how limited our federal government should really be, and how many lines have been crossed. Obviously I don't know if everything he said is true, although there is a thick citations section at the end of the book. I don't take anything on face value from anyone in the media, so I will do some of my own research. But, I have to say that I was quite pleasantly surprised by this book. And I don't think he seems like an asshole.
