BOOK DESCRIPTION

According to Jonah Goldberg, if the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist, the greatest trick liberals ever pulled was convincing themselves that they’re not ideological.

Today, “objective” journalists, academics and “moderate” politicians peddle some of the most radical arguments by hiding them in homespun aphorisms.

With humor and passion, Goldberg dismantles these and many other Trojan Horses that liberals use to cheat in the war of ideas.

 

REVIEWS

"A grand slam,"
-GOVERNOR MITCH DANIELS (R-IN)

"Jonah Goldberg is the voice of the post-Reagan conservative generation."
-JOHN PODHORETZ

"The dissection of these feel-good assumptions is informal and light, but the conclusions are deadly serious-and chilling."
-VICTOR DAVIS HANSON

"Whether you love or hate what he has to say, you've got to love the way Jonah Goldberg says it."
-SENATOR MARCO RUBIO (R-FL)

"Jonah Goldberg reveals how we've become trapped by ideas we think we understand but don't. A must read."
