This Book Reads Like an Expanded "Talking Points"

  • Nov 15, 2013

I have read several of Bill's books.  While this is one of the weakest of his that I have read, it is still a very good and extremely fast read.  In this one Bill postulates on things like responsiblities to be a good parent, the dangers of addictions, the failures of the news media and the importance of religion in one's life.  Though I don't always agree with Bill, I always enjoy how he presents things.  He makes some very compelling arguments as to why the word "Christmas" should not be forceably omitted from retail ads and in other areas where people no longer use the word.

He lays out good strategies for parents teaching good morals to their children.  In one case he seems to be bothered that in one Univerisity program a "watered" down version of the Koran is required reading.  He then gives a "watered" down version of the interview he had with the 'offending" professor from the school.  I would like to see the full interview to see if certain cogent arguments were omitted.

I easily finished this book in one sitting, wiishing it was longer.

What did you think of this review?
