Publisher's Summary

Michael Medved is an orthodox Jew whose popular radio show is a favorite with evangelical Christians. As a nationally syndicated movie reviewer he made headlines with a controversial book titled Hollywood vs. America. He is a fervent and committed conservative who once worked 18-hour days in Bobby Kennedy's presidential campaign. And he counts among his friends both Rush Limbaugh and Hillary Clinton. He is a unique man, with a unique story to tell. In Right Turns, Medved recounts his incredible journey from secularism to religion, from adventurous single man to devoted and doting husband and father, from gloomy critic of "our sick society" to optimistic and impassioned promoter of American patriotism. With conviction but without vitriol, he relates his sometimes painful but ultimately illuminating process of maturation. Right Turns is a candid, often funny, thoroughly captivating memoir that says a lot about the interplay of the personal and the political.

One man's quirky journey through life

Though not a big fan of his radio show, (I listen less than once every couple of months), this story of his journey thus far was endlessly fasinating. For the political junkie like me, to hear his impressions of the many people who crossed his path earlier in life was surprising. People you would expect him to savage, he had nothing but nice things to say. The twists and turns of his life and the lessons he offers from them I found both compelling and touching.

Surprisingly Engaging

I actually found many parallels to my own life while listening to this book. I didn't find it overly preachy but it was interesting to see what makes someone of Michaels background (i.e. liberal upbringing, schools, communities) become conservative in their own life. I too grew up with a more liberal influence and found as I got older that it didn't fit with my ideals and beliefs. Michael did a wonderful job and I always recommend the unabridged version since I like to know I heard every bit. The only negative was that Michael didn't narrate himself, but the narrator did a good job and kept me engaged.
